Personal Quote:

[on charging per song rather than by the hour for studio time] Creativity doesn't come by the hour.

Trivia:

While the business itself moved to downtown Clovis in the 1960s, Petty retained the original site, which later underwent restoration work for a documentary. Petty and his wife are buried in a cemetery just up the street from the first studio. See more »
