    I saw Mudcrutch during their first reunion tour in 2008 - they we're great. Tom Petty does a nice job on bass, and he and Tom Leadon harmonize beautifully together.

    I love "Trailer". It's getting a lot of airplay here. Petty's bass part is perfect for the song, simple but very clean and great tone.
