Published: 2004-10-29
If there's one thing music fans can't get enough of, it's getting inside the lives and minds of their favourite musician. Those who count themselves as one of the thousands of people who idolize legendary rocker Tom Petty will soon get that chance.

The guitarist recently inked a deal with publishing house Omnibus Press for an authorized biography. It will be the first time the story of the man and his life in rock'n'roll has been told with help from Petty himself. The 'Free Fallin'' singer is currently sitting down with Paul Zollo, the writer of the biography, for a series of discussions about Petty's life, and more importantly his music.

Titled 'Conversations with Tom Petty', the biography is set to be ready for purchase around the holiday season of next year.

Involved in the music business for nearly thirty years, Tom Petty is one of the most respected songwriters in the field. He first appeared on the scene with his band the Heartbreakers in 1976, with their self-titled debut album. In addition to being the namesake of Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Petty was also involved with rock supergroup The Travelling Wilburys, which also boasted members George Harrison, Bob Dylan, and Roy Orbison.
