It should be noted that "Scare Easy" is from the re-formed
Mudcrutch. The 2008 lineup of Tom Petty, Mike Campbell
, Tom Leadon, Benmont Tench
, and Randall Marsh is identical to the original formation of the group minus Jim Lenahan - and since Jim Lenahan's only original job was lead vocals, Tom Petty now fills that slot adequately.
Mudcrutch originally formed in 1970. They released a single that didn't chart, puttered around, and went nowhere. The group members all split off to go their own ways; Petty, Tench, and Campbell of course hitting it big with Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Petty reformed the group in 2008 and released their first album. As near as we can tell, this stands as a record for the longest amount of time passing between the formation of a band and its debut album, at 38 years.
