Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. For me the name brings back memories of cruising around in the summer time with the windows rolled down and the radio blasting rock and roll. For those fans of rock in the 70′s and 80′s, Tom Petty was the essential roots based rocker, who wrote number one hit after number one hit.
This book is full of pictures of Tom and his band from his early days as a 15 year old touring musician, to his first known band “Mudcrutch”, and culminating with his years spent as the frontman for the Heartbreakers. Personal favorite pictures are Tom as a young rocker, and Tom recording with Johnny Cash.
Read the book with your favorite Petty record on, flip through the pages, and remember how it felt the first time you heard a Petty song cutting through the airwaves.
