  • From Opening Act to Tom Petty Biographer
    unique one rock musician writing about another Although the book would not carry the label authorized Petty promised Zanes his complete cooperation It s your book Petty told him I was shocked at the level of trust Zanes tells me over breakfast at Raymond s in Montclair In my view he s a bit of a recluse He s never been a self promoter in the ways you would expect in the music business He s somewhat unknown Indeed Petty The Biography reveals a headstrong but damaged hero The son of an abusive father Petty stumbled into rock n roll as a teen in Gainesville Florida and achieved stardom as a singer songwriter and guitarist through a potent combination of talent and sheer determination The book chronicles Petty s rocky road from cover bands to marquee act Zanes delivers the requisite tales of life on the road sex and drugs are the given he says but he delves deeply and fascinatingly into the inner workings of the Heartbreakers and Petty s emergence as a strong leader capable of making tough decisions including firing the contentious drummer Stan Lynch At one point Petty tells Zanes I ve had to be brutal Zanes also shares Lynch s side of the story in painful detail Recommended Reading Net Gains The History of Pound Fishing Zanes is intrigued by the band dynamic from both a musical and social perspective I hope that in some kind of 20th century history of America there s a section on bands because I think they are a bigger piece of the American story than anyone realizes he says Zanes views the Heartbreakers and their contemporaries notably Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band as belonging to the golden age of bands Yes he says kids still form rock bands play cover songs and dream of something bigger Yet there s a difference In the golden age of bands he says it was what you were seeing on TV what you were hearing on the radio It was what you were seeing style wise People were fashioning themselves after members of bands Certainly this was true for Petty In the book Zanes describes Petty s arrival in Los Angeles as an emerging recording artist suddenly mixing it up with A list stars like George Harrison Ringo Starr and Brian Wilson He had listened to their stuff on AM radio in Florida for years and now he s in a room with these guys Zanes says He s standing right next to them and engaging them in conversation Petty was awestruck yet he gained confidence from these interactions He wants to be one of the guys who make it happen But making it happen would include major sacrifices and the inevitable low points Zanes describes the breakdown of Petty s first marriage the loss of bassist Howie Epstein to a heroin overdose and Petty s own previously undocumented bout with heroin addiction It was a surprise to me Zanes says
