"Tom Petty and Mudcrutch traveled cross-country to California in 1974 with drummer Randall Marsh, Guitarist Mike Campbell, Keyboard player Benmont Tench and guitarist Danny Roberts, seeking fame and fortune, and they immediately signed a contract with the up-and-coming L.A. based Shelter Records. As the first single on Shelter, "Depot Street" was released, the band lived in Leon Russell's recording studio for months recording an album of the early catalog of Tom Petty songs. Then, in early '75 after Danny left, they brought in bass player Charlie Souza. However, being confined to the studio took its toll, and band members went their seperate ways." www.FloridaMusicHall.com
