Description
In a career that has spanned nearly forty years and won him great acclaim, three Grammy awards, and a spot in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Tom Petty has had tremendous success--both as a solo artist, and as the lead singer of the Heartbreakers. But he has also faced down great obstacles, including a difficult childhood and a grueling bout with depression. In this essential biography, Andrea M. Rotondo explores every aspect of the icon's career: the sold-out tours, the collaborations with some of the greatest musicians of all time, and the consequences of an emotional breakdown. Tom Petty: Rock 'n' Roll Guardian is a truly intimate look at one of our most beloved artists.

Description
Tom Petty may be one of rock'n'roll's preeminent artists today - having sold more than 60-million records - but his rise to superstardom was never a foregone conclusion. His band Mudcrutch was a household name in his hometown of Gainesville, Florida, in the mid-1970s, but the band self-destructed just months after moving to Los Angeles in search of a record deal. Tom Petty and former Mudcrutch alums Mike Campbell and Benmont Tench then regrouped with Gainesville ex-pats Stan Lynch and Ron Blair to form Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers in 1976. The new group fought to build an audience only to endure conflict with the record label, which caused Petty to go bankrupt before emerging from a scathing lawsuit with the sweeping anthems - 'Refugee' and 'Don't Do Me Like That' - that catapulted the band's third album Damn The Torpedoes to multi-Platinum status. Tom Petty: Rock 'n' Roll Guardian is the first intimate portrait of one of the most enduring figures on rock'n'roll's world stage. Petty is the ultimate underdog that made good and his honest approach to the craft of songwriting has brought him the respect of music industry insiders and fans alike.
