Tom Petty has long been considered one of the great songwriters of American rock ‘n’ roll, as well as one of the key standard bearers of integrity in the music business. Conversations with Tom Petty is the first authorized book to focus solely on the life and work of the man responsible for some of the most memorable rock anthems of our generation, including: American Girl,” Breakdown,” Refugee,” The Waiting,” Don’t Come Around Here No More,” I Won’t Back Down,” Free Fallin,” Runnin’ Down a Dream,” You Don’t Know How It Feels,” Mary Jane’s Last Dance,” and many others. Author Paul Zollo conducted a series of in-depth discussions with Tom about his career, with special focus on his songwriting. The conversations are reprinted here with little or no editorial comment and represent a unique perspective on Tom’s entire career. Originally published in 2005 (also by Omnibus Press), Tom’s wife Dana has fully approved this updated edition, which retains its foreword by Petty, adds additional interview material, an expanded introduction as well as additional photos from Petty’s last ever live performance. This is, perhaps, as close as you can get to an autobiography by the great man.“

Quotes & Awards

  • “The book is successful because the notoriously media-wary Petty responds to Zollo’s almost obsessive knowledge about his life, career, and craft with articulate and intelligent answers that even nonfans can enjoy.”
