I visited Bill Griggs in 2002, and the biggest myth he dispelled was that of Petty being unfair with Money.

He showed me many receipts and paperwork from the Crickets accounts, and it's fair to say that there was a time when they were spending money faster than they were earning it. I recall one cheque for $2000 dollars made out for Joe B Mauldin, the reason given was "clothes". A lot of money for clothes now, never mind 1957-58!

And don't forget the motorbikes...speed boat....water skis...etc
