An incomparable tribute to the Hall of Fame performer.

“It was more than commerce,” recalled Tom Petty just days before his death on October 3rd. “It was about moving people, and changing the world, and I really believed in rock ’n’ roll. I still do.”

At age thirteen, he saw The Beatles on Ed Sullivan and knew what his life's work would be. Fourteen years later, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers hit the charts, and unlike almost all his fellow rock royalty, he remained there decade after decade, his final album, 2014's Hypnotic Eye, debuting at #1.

Laconic, unpretentious, savvy, and steadfast, Tom Petty was an Everyman Hero whose generosity and masterful songwriting made him one of pop music's most beloved and influential figures.

Now, Easton Press and Rolling Stone magazine present, Tom Petty a Collector's Edition, bound in leather and accented with 22kt gold.

The ultimate tribute to Tom Petty's music & legend.

Tom Petty is the retrospective that only rock's preeminent music journal could create. Drawing on Rolling Stone's unmatched archive of photographs and renowned writing, these pages celebrate the life of the wounded but determined kid from Gainesville, Florida who for forty years created the soundtrack to American life.

The music takes center stage with a look back on Petty's work with the Heartbreakers and beyond, including his collaborations with Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Roy Orbison and Johnny Cash, artists who were Petty's own heroes. And a special section presents a definitive guide to Petty's 50 greatest songs.

Tom Petty also goes behind the hits, recalling Petty's inventive, detailed, and sometimes controversial music videos and his legendary battles with the music business and refusal to back down when the powers-that-be attempted to exploit his music, his fellow artists, or his fans.

Featuring scores of rare photos from Petty's life and revealing interviews with the Heartbreakers, Tom Petty is a thrilling tribute to one of the most original and enduring voices in popular music.
