TOM PETTY: Benmont’s Lucky Time
Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers keyboardist Benmont Tench releases his first solo album today (Tuesday).
You Should Be So Lucky features guest appearances by Tom Petty, Ringo Starr and Ryan Adams. Tench says the 10 originals on the album are songs he’s had for many years. But he never felt inspired to do a solo album until now because “I’m getting up in years…I got the fear of mortality put in me.”
Tench will perform his first ever solo shows Thursday and Friday at Largo in Los Angeles.
