Petrillo was born inChicago, Illinois. Though in his youth Petrillo played thetrumpet, he finally made a career out of organizing musicians into the union starting in 1919.
Petrillo became president of the Chicago Local 10 of the musician's union in 1922, and was president of theAmerican Federation of Musiciansfrom 1940 to 1958.He continued being the prime force in the Union for another decade; in the 1960s he was head of the Union's "Civil Rights Division", which saw to thedesegregationof the local unions and the venues where musicians played.
The round-faced, bespectacled Petrillo dominated the union with absolute authority. His most famous actions werebanning all commercial recordingsby union members from 1942–1944 and again in 1948 to pressurerecord companiesto give better royalty deals to musicians;these were called thePetrillo Bans.
