Mike Campbell’s Dirty Knobs Announce Debut Album and Tour

January 13, 2020

Ex-Tom Petty collaborator Mike Campbell is finally releasing an album with his longtime side project. The Dirty Knobs will kick off a nationwide tour this spring, then release their debut album on March 20.

Campbell, who's also worked with Fleetwood Mac, is joined by Jason Sinay (Neil Diamond, Ivan Neville) on guitar and vocals , Lance Morrison (Don Henley) on bass and Matt Laug (Slash, Alanis Morissette) on drums. A list of the announced tour dates, venues and cities is attached below, along with the newly released video for the title track from Wreckless Abandon.

 

"The Dirty Knobs first got together almost 15 years ago, but Wreckless Abandon is our first album and occasion to tour," Campbell explained in a press release. "Over the years, the Knobs became an outlet for me to play some of the other songs I was writing and to keep the creative juices flowing in between working on albums and tours with Tom and the Heartbreakers."

Campbell produced Wreckless Abandon with George Drakoulias (Black Crowes, Jayhawks) and wrote all of the songs. Guests on the sessions included Campbell's former bandmate Benmont Tench and country star Chris Stapleton. The cover art was created by Klaus Voormann, who's best known for his work on the Beatles' Revolver.

Petty's sudden death in 2017 prompted Campbell to focus more intently on the Dirty Knobs, who'd previously played only a series of odd club dates. "Losing Tom was earth shattering for me. It was a total shock," Campbell said.

"For a while, it was hard to imagine playing in my own band again, let alone one where I’m the frontman. Tom was always my beacon. But everything I've been doing since Tom passed, including this album with the Dirty Knobs, is in the spirit of honoring what we did together."

Just finished Petty by Warren Zanes.  In it it discusses how Tom had a problem with Campbell's solo project because it sounded a lot like TP&TH.  Now I see what he meant.  Not that its a bad thing, especially with Tom gone.

I had a Rick 12 but had to get rid of it because the neck was bowing like a bitch and never would stay straight, and the fretboard seemed too skinny for my fatass fingertips. It was gorgeous, though.

Yeah, I couldn't believe it had 12 strings crammed onto a fretboard skinnier than I would be comfortable with had it only had 6 strings.  I like to think I have a pretty good left hand in terms of accuracy when chording, but I was flummoxed.

The Mike Campbell Duesenberg is a modded Starplayer.  Maybe they'll do a second Mike Campbell guitar that's a modded Double Cat or Caribou.

A couple of years ago I bought a Dano 12 on sale and it is far easier to play and sounds great. I need to break it out again.
