Tom Petty's Heartbreakers bandmate Mike Campbell
was originally asked to play the guitar part on "Handle With Care" that George Harrison eventually performed. He recalled to Uncut
"They didn't have the slide intro. I setup my amp, and Tom, Jeff and George are there. I'm trying my best, but I thought, 'Oh my gosh, I'm playing the guitar in front of a Beatle!' I played pretty good but I said, 'I really think George would be better on this, his fill would be much sweeter.' So he used my amp and I handed him my guitar. He came up with that beautiful guitar part."
