TOM PETTY, STEVIE NICKS: Keyboardist Has Left Stevie Broken-Hearted
Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers’ keyboardist Benmont Tench released his first solo album, You Should Be So Lucky, last month. While he was able to do a few solo dates around its release, he tells us that though he’s got a band that he loves and thoroughly enjoyed those shows, he’s not sure if and when he’ll be able to carve out the time for a proper solo tour.
Tench says that the problem is that he’s a Heartbreaker first and foremost and that Petty dates trump anything else he might have planned. He explains how that situation has even led to a running joke between him and Stevie Nicks.
