"Long before he was a member of Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers -- decades before he collaborated with Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, John Prine and Roy Orbison – Howie Epstein was upstairs at his parents’ home in Milwaukee, earnestly crafting his own substantial catalog of original songs. This CD features his earliest efforts, recorded with a pair of pocket-sized cassette decks perched on the foot of a bed. And while the technical sophistication of this material cannot compare to Howie’s later work as a Grammy-winning musician/producer, these tracks are proudly presented -- unenhanced -- as a rare glimpse at the nascent spirit that propelled his extraordinary Rock’n’Roll Hall of Fame career. Indeed, this is how it all got started. " (

His replacement, Howie Epstein, stayed with the band for the next two decades. In 1991, Scott Thurston joined the band as a t-mostly on rhythm guitar and second keyboards. Blair returned to the Heartbreakers in 2002, the year before Epstein's death. Their final studio album, Hypnotic Eye, was released in 2014. The band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2002, their first year of eligibility. Although most of their material was produced and performed under the name "The Heartbreakers", Petty released three solo albums, the most successful of which was Full Moon Fever (1989).

Howard Norman Epstein (July 21, 1955 – February 23, 2003) was an American musician best known as a bassist with Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Epstein was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and grew up in a musical household. His father, Sam, was a top local record producer who worked with various rock and roll and soul groups in the 1950s and 1960s

Howie Epstein, who played bass and sang for Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers between 1982 and 2002, died in a New Mexico hospital on February 23rd; he was forty-seven. Epstein was brought to the Santa Fe hospital by an unidentified female companion, who reportedly said he had been using heroin. A cause of death has not yet been given, but Epstein had battled substance abuse problems for years. Though Epstein was active with the Heartbreakers in the early-Nineties, perhaps his best work was jump-starting a pair of stalled roots-rock careers. He recorded three well-regarded albums for Carlene Carter, coaxing her back from a seven-year hiatus with 1990’s I Fell in Love. He also worked similar magic for singer-songwriter John Prine.
