SUNDAY - Did the Chili Peppers Rip Off Petty?

In 2006, the Red Hot Chili Peppers came out with the wildly successful "Dani California," which became the second song in history to debut at number 1 on the Billboard Modern Rock chart.  But soon, a radio DJ in Delaware began noticing the song had a remarkable similarities to Tom Petty’s earlier song “Mary Jane’s Last Dance” which made not nearly as much money.  It was suggested that Petty sue for copyright infringement   How did it turn out?   Find out this Sunday, March 18 between 4-7 am, when I resume my Copycats series.
