The New York Post spoke with Tom Petty’s rep Heidi Robinson to get a reaction to the buzz that the Red Hot Chili Peppers apparently lifted material from Petty’s ‘Mary Jane’s Last Dance’ on their current single ‘Dani California’. “I am well aware of this situation.

I have no idea if he is going to sue the Chili Peppers, and am not prepared to make a comment on that.”
