Tom Petty Trivia


  • Trivia

    • In 1982, Petty and The Heartbreakers recorded Hard Promises, only to discover that his record company planned to use the band's name and reputation to justify increasing the list price for LP's to $9.98. Tom withheld the master tapes and threatened to re-title his record "$8.98" in protest. The company decided not to raise the price. The LP cover shows Tom in a record store - an old store which is perhaps selling cheap, used records.
