It’s no surprise that Tom Petty has tested the waters in terms of drugs, but for the first time ever, it’s come out that he had a pretty serious heroin addiction in the ’90s.
When writer Warren Zanes first spoke to Petty about the subject, Petty said “I am very concerned that talking about this is putting a bad example out there for young people. If anyone is going to think heroin is an option because they know my story of using heroin, I can’t do this.”
The new bio, titled Petty: The Biography, will be out November 10th. Read more here.
