Product Description

Chronicling the enigmatic rocker’s life, from his childhood in Florida to his meteoric ascent to the top of the rock hierarchy, Tom Petty: Rock ‘n’ Roll Guardian is the essential biography of the iconoclastic musician.

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.

Andrea M. Rotondo has followed the career of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers since the band’s debut album in 1976 and has seen them perform hundreds of times both in the United States and abroad. She has written for a variety of publications including Mix and Billboard.
