Mike Campbell, the lead guitarist for Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, will release his first solo album with his band the Dirty Knobs on March 20th, titled, Wreckless Abandon. Rolling Stone reported Campbell, who currently performs with Fleetwood Mac, posted the band's first video for the album's title track.
Campbell and the Knobs kick off their 20-date club tour on March 10th at Minneapolis' Fine Line Music Hall and wind things down on April 28th at Tampa's The Orpheum.
Mike Campbell, who was Tom Petty's primary musical collaborator starting in 1971, formed the Dirty Knobs 15 years ago, said in a statement, “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 & The Heartbreakers. . . Losing Tom was earth-shattering for me. It was a total shock. It had felt like we would be playing together forever.”
