Stolen Tom Petty music recovered
$100,000 in property, including computer hard drives featuring unreleased music, were returned to Tom Petty‘s family. TMZ reported that a thief pillaged Petty’s storage unit in L.A.’s San Fernando Valley and swiped guitars, guns, and hard drives featuring unheard Petty recordings.
According to the report, a suspect has been arrested who allegedly confessed to the burglary. Although the hard drives are back under lock and key — the cops are still trying to locate the stolen instruments and weapons.
- Out now is the career-spanning Tom Petty compilation, The Best Of Everything. The 38-track set includes two previously unreleased tracks — “For Real” and an alternate version of the title track, which restores a never-heard second verse to the song that was originally recorded for 1985’s Southern Accents album.
- The Best Of Everything collects tracks from Petty’s work with the Heartbreakers, Mudcrutch, and his solo albums.
