I don't think any of those guys were systematically constructed by the industry like a Bieber, Rihanna or Lil Wayne. They were all no different from the rest of their band members when the started out. Although I am not really sure how Petty came about. I think he was a studio musician and eventually got noticed as a good artist in the LA studio scene of the 1970s. None of them were snatched up by record producers and had horribly simplistic automated music built around them, that's for sure.
