Views on artistic control

Petty is known as a staunch guardian of his creative control and artistic freedom. In 1979, he was dragged into a legal dispute when ABC Records was sold to MCA Records. He refused to be transferred to another record label without his consent. .In May 1979, he filed for bankruptcy and was signed to the new MCA subsidiary Backstreet Records.^ MCA Records , Backstreet Records .

.This so-called "superstar pricing" was $1.00 more than the usual list price of $8.98.[23] Petty voiced his objections to the price hike in the press and the issue became a popular cause among music fans.^ I find his voice one of the most anoying ear sores out there too and I used to be a hard core Petty fan.

Non-delivery of the album and naming it Eight Ninety-Eight were considered, but eventually MCA decided against the price increase.[24]
.In 1987, Petty sued tire company B.F. Goodrich for $1 million for using a song very similar to his song "Mary's New Car" in a TV commercial.^ The songs are all very similar, about 3 minutes long, all have catchy beginnings, steady driving (and good) guitar chords, and very enjoyable hooky choruses.

The ad agency that produced the commercial had previously sought permission to use Petty's song but was refused. A judge issued a temporary restraining order prohibiting further use of the ad and the suit was later settled out of court.[25]
.Some have claimed that the Red Hot Chili Peppers single "Dani California", released in May 2006, is very similar to Petty's Mary Jane's Last Dance.^ Plus "Mary Janes Last Dance" has a killer riff, even though I understand it was ripped offbut thats fairly common for late-era Petty.

[26] Petty told Rolling Stone, "I seriously doubt that there is any negative intent there. And a lot of rock 'n' roll songs sound alike. Ask Chuck Berry. .The Strokes took 'American Girl' [for their song 'Last Nite'], and I saw an interview with them where they actually admitted it.^ This album also is where Tom establishes his ability to come up with great melodic American Folk/Rock songs, as "American Girl" foreshadowed on the first album.

^ I must say though, "American Girl" and "Breakdown" ARE the best songs on this one, even if the former is really different class.

That made me laugh out loud. .I was like, 'OK, good for you' ...^ "You Wreck Me" sounds a lot like the intro to "Walk All Over You," but something tells me good ol' Tom isn't into Angus & Co.

If someone took my song note for note and stole it maliciously, then maybe [I'd sue]. But I don't believe in lawsuits much. .I think there are enough frivolous lawsuits in this country without people fighting over pop songs."^ Now, if you don't think that that combination isn't enough to sway most elections that you become able to hear the outcry of the people.

Personal life

His first marriage, to Jane Benyo, lasted 22 years. He spent most of those years working, on the road or in the studio. He has two daughters, director Adria and artist AnnaKim Violette, by that marriage. .Since 2001 he has been married to Dana York, whom he first met years earlier when she came to one of his concerts.^ It was one for all the cancer moms we’ve met over the years.

She has been seen in varities of adult films.[28]
In 1987, an arsonist set fire to Petty's house in Encino, California. The fire caused $1 million in damage but firefighters were able to salvage the basement recording studio and the original tapes stored there, as well as his Gibson Dove acoustic guitar. His signature gray top hat, however, was destroyed. Petty later rebuilt the house with fireproof materials. [29][30]

Equipment

Petty owns and has used a number of guitars over the years. From 1976-1982, his main instrument was a sunburst 1964 Fender Stratocaster. .He has also used a number of Rickenbacker guitars from 1979 onwards, notably a 1965 Rose Morris 1993 and 1987 reissue of the Rose Morris 1997, a 1967 360/12 and 1989 660/12TP. The Rickenbacker 660/12TP was designed by Petty (specifically the neck) and featured his signature from 1991 to 1997.[31] Other electrics currently used on tour include a Gretsch Tennessean, two 1960s Fender Telecasters and a Gibson Firebird.^ Single Opt-in Method: In response to print, radio, television, Internet, or other promotional messages, users will be directed to send a specific word or code via a text message to a designated telephone number to register for the service promoted.

.For acoustic guitars, Petty has had a signature C.F. Martin HD-40, and has written virtually all of his songs on a Gibson Dove acoustic saved from his 1987 house fire.^ The song starts off with a fade-up of the instruments followed by Petty's acoustic guitar strumming the main beat.

He currently uses a Gibson J-200 in a natural finish and a late '70s Guild 12-string acoustic.
Petty's current amplifer setup features a Marshall Plexi 50 watt head and a Hiwatt Custom 50 amp head, through a Vox Super Beatle extension cabinet.[32]
