The Petty Archives

Hey Petty people,

Today's interview goes way back to May 1980, following the release of Damn the Torpedoes, and was published in New Zealand music magazine Rip It Up. In it, Tom Petty talks about what held him together during the lawsuits, what he thinks of Jimmy Iovine, and why You're Gonna Get It! will never be his favourite album:

"I think there's bitterness there, but I think there's more hope for survival. That album is about standing up for your rights, the certain inalienable rights that nobody can take away from you."

As usual, enjoy! 

- Aimee (listening to the Tragically Hip - Ahead By A Century)
