Warren Zanes discusses his new book, Petty: The Biography, with Bill Janovitz, one of the founding members of the band Buffalo Tom. In the mid-eighties, rock icon Tom Petty invited then-22-year-old Warren Zanes and his band, the Del Fuegos, to open for him and the Heartbreakers on a three-month summer tour. At the time, Zanes never would have guessed that 30 years later he would pen Petty’s biography with the artist’s full cooperation and unguarded honesty.

Known for his reclusive ways, Petty wrote timeless songs that gave us some beautiful clues about his life, but in Petty: The Biography (Henry Holt; on sale November 10, 2015), Zanes, an acclaimed musician, writer, filmmaker, and a former vice president of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, fills in the rest of the story. For the first time, Petty speaks about the disorientations of success, tensions within his band, childhood abuse, heroin use, and his long but troubled first marriage. Petty’s family, producers (including Rick Rubin, Jimmy Iovine, and Jeff Lynne), and bandmates past and present all weigh in as well.

Janovitz has been based in Boston since 1988, having founded Buffalo Tom at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst. He has written two books on the Rolling Stones, the most recent being Rocks Off: 50 Tracks That Tell the Story of the Rolling Stones (2013, St. Martin's Press).

Deborah Borda speaks with Panos Panay, founding managing director of the Berklee Institute of Creative Entrepreneurship, for November's installment of the Creative Entrepreneurs Conversations. 

One of the most successful arts leaders in the country and head of the L.A. Philharmonic, Borda has grown the orchestra in every way. From hiring world-renowned conductor Gustavo Dudamel to commissioning experimental new minimalist and avant-garde works, she is inventing an orchestra for the future of music. Borda is not only growing the L.A. Philharmonic's artistic impact but also expanding its social duties. The intersection between the artistic imperative and the social imperative is of the upmost importance to her, a fact manifested by the creation of the Youth Orchestra of Los Angeles (YOLA), which brings diversity to music by supporting young musicians across the L.A. community. With artistic progress and social diversification, Borda aims not only to protect the L.A. Philharmonic but to create an orchestra for the 22nd century.
