Rock musician Tom Petty began his career in earnest with a group called Mudcrutch. Though he was close to his mother and younger brother, Petty had a difficult relationship with his father, who was often physically and verbally abusive. But Petty found refuge in music, idolizing the likes of Elvis Presley and the Beatles and learning to play guitar. He began playing bass with a local group called the Epics, and at the age of 17, he dropped out of school to perform with a new band that would become known as Mudcrutch, named after the farm where two of its members lived. Petty quickly emerged as the frontman and primary songwriter in the group, which soon developed a devoted local following. The year proved a pivotal one for Petty, who married his girlfriend, Jane Benyo with whom he already had a daughter, Adria , before moving to Los Angeles with Mudcrutch in the hopes of reaching a wider audience. There, Petty and Benyo had their second daughter, AnnaKim, and Mudcrutch signed to Shelter Records, but when their lone single went largely unnoticed, the group disbanded. Within a few years, their confidence in him would be duly rewarded. After trying for a while to put together a new backing band, Petty eventually reconnected with his former Mudcrutch bandmates Mike Campbell guitar and Benmont Tench keyboards , who were playing with bassist Ron Blair and drummer Stan Lynch.
