Rock icon Tom Petty and his custom built Fender Kingman acoustic guitar are featured on the August cover of Men’s Journal.
Inside the issue, Petty discusses some of the classic songs he’s created in his plus 40-year career and dishes on his upcoming new album, Hypnotic Eye, due out July 29.
An online version of the article teases eight of the things the magazine learned during their Petty profile, including quotes on sports, forgiveness, drugs and the Traveling Wilburys.
“It’s kind of stupid that we didn’t do more,” he said of the Wilburys. “I used to say, ‘Just flash the big W in the sky like the bat signal, and we’ll all come.’ We just thought we had all the time in the world.”
