Tom Takes High Road

Tom Petty has decided to take the high road when it comes to the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Music insiders were shocked when the Peppers debuted their hit song, "Dani California," last month - as we reported, it's eerie similarity to Petty's "Mary Jane's Last Dance."

But Petty tells 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. That made me laugh out loud. I was like, 'OK, good for you' . . . 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 law suits in this country without people fighting over pop songs."
