Some of you may have read about the forthcoming release of the book Bob Dylan: "Intimate Insights From Friends and Fellow Musicians" by Kathleen Mackay.

The advance copies of the book did in fact contain passages taken from the "Conversations With Tom Petty" book written by Paul Zollo, but for contractual reasons these passages could not be reproduced in the Kathleen Mackay book.
