Conversations with Tom Petty

I never would have thought that I would want to read a 300+ page book about Tom Petty...Conversations With Tom Petty is really something else, though. It reminded me how much great music Petty has made - with the Heartbreakers, the Wilburys and as a solo artist. He's really easy to take for granted but dig out Wildflowers, She's The One or The Traveling Wilburys, Vol. 1 and just listen.

Forget the fact that he knew and played with everyone: Duck Dunn, Jim Keltner, George Harrison, Ringo, Dylan, etc etc etc...

He turns out to be a pretty interesting cat to read about, too. Made me want to dig out one my favorite Petty tracks...Enjoy the MP3...
