THE REUNION FEW PEOPLE WERE WAITING FOR (but it will rock anyway!)

There's been a lot of great reunions this year: The Police, Genesis and Van Halen. Not to mention Led Zeppelin.

But next year, we might see a reunion by Mudcrutch. For those of you who have never heard of them, that was the band that Tom Petty was in, before The Heartbreakers: yes, this is another mention of Tom Petty. Anyway, Mudcrutch also included future Heartbreakers Mike Campbell and Benmont Tench. Probably their best song was "Don't Do Me Like That," which The Heartbreakers revisited a few years later. Tom said in a recent Rolling Stone interview that they've recorded a new album, and that they may tour - but he just wants to do festivals. I guess if they're not doing Petty's Heartbreakers material, it doesn't make sense for them to bear the burden of selling lots of tickets. I'm psyched to hear this. Of course, I'm also looking forward to his next album with The Heartbreakers.
