So I thought that, because Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers will be touring this summer, there wouldn't be any activity with his former band, Mudcrutch

Nope, turns out that their "reunion" album, which is kind of their debut album, will be out on April 29, and they kick off a brief tour of California two weeks earlier. Here's hoping that they do a NY date. Three fifths of the band - Tom, guitarist Mike Campbell and keyboardist Benmont Tench - are in the Heartbreakers. But it must be weird for the other two guys - guitarist Tom Leadon and drummer Randall Marsh - to be doing this tour.  They haven't been in the music scene for a long time, now they're touring with their ex-bandmates who are millionaire rock stars. 

Anyway, I'm hoping to get tickets to Tom's NY area show this summer.
