    More Information:

    While playing Target Center, downtown Minneapolis on 9/10/95, Jeff Abrams, then Senior VP of Music Marketing for Best Buy was invited backstage in celebration of Tom Petty's Wildflowers release. There, UNI and Tom's manager, Tony Dimtriades, gave Jeff a Rickenbacker, symbolic of Tom's sound. Following an extremely lively show, Tom Petty personally came out and signed the '95 Rickenbacker 360 for Jeff.
