I’m a Tom Petty Fan. I was listening to the Tom Petty channel on SiriusXM, and they debuted Mike Campbell’s Dirty Knob single Wreckless Abandon.
I never knew who Mike Campbell was until I started listening to the Tom Petty Channel to his Buried Treasure Show. He would talk about his band, and Gainsville, and how he got started with Mike Campbell and Benmont Tench.
When I first heard this single, It sounded like Tom Petty singing, but a really gritty version. No, it’s Mike Campbell.
I’m so glad he ventured out. I’m so glad he’s sharing this sound with everyone in a more public atmosphere. He’s not toured outside California until now. I might have to go see him live….Maybe in Austin. His sound is very Austin cool.
