Publisher's Summary

Tom Petty and Me is a new book by Jon Scott, Tom's friend for 40 years. Jon has been credited with "breaking" the career of this iconic rock-and-roller. This book is an inside look of a former deejay turned promotion man, who met Tom when he was about to be dropped by his record label, ABC Records. 

Through many serendipitous moments, Jon appeared at the right time to help get Tom's first album played on the radio, and that changed the careers of both men. Tom's first album had been out for eight months when Jon arrived on the scene. The rest is history! At Tom's final concert at The Hollywood Bowl, Tom dedicated "I Won't Back Down" to Jon, as a testament to Jon's help in establishing his career back in 1977.

INCREDIBLE BOOK TOM PETTY AND ME

I read this book when it first came out and loved the intimacy of it. I've read it numerous times.
However listening to Jon Scott read this book on Audible is a whole different experience!

In listening to Jon it's like you are right there with him, I truly experienced laughter, goosebumps and yes even tears. Being able to hear clips Jon has included in the audio book touches your soul and heart strings. The listener will feel the closeness of love and friendship that spanned 40 years from a person closer to Tom Petty than most could ever dream possible. A BIG thank you to Jon Scott for doing the audio book a whole different experience than reading it as I said.

To anyone who hasn't heard it do yourself a favor buy it and listen to Jon speak directly to you in an intimate telling of this amazing book

Well done!

Great audiobook, from beginning to end! It feels genuine and leaves you wanting more. Jon Scott is an excellent narrator and, often, made me feel part of the events he shared. Well done indeed!
