Thanks for that!
It was nice - I've never heard or seen him in an interview, so this was a treat. He's quick witted and very good natured from what I can see.
I enjoyed watching this. Thanks for sharing.
If you've heard any Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, you've heard him play.
What I meant to say was that I've never heard him or seen him "in an interview". LOL.
Mike's a great player, thanks for posting that!
Thanks for posting
One of my favorite guitarists. Always plays the right thing for the song. Uncanny skill.
Yep. Many of the phrases that naturally come out of my fingers trace back to either Mike Campbell, Neil Young or Martin Barre.
Martin Barre! There's a name that doesn't pop up anywhere nearly often enough. I've seen Tull nine or ten times. Been a fan since "This Was!"
Mike is one of my fav all time guitarists - thanks for posting
This interview was done to promote news that Mike has been recruited to replace Lindsey Buckingham in the upcoming new Fleetwood Mac world tour. They've also pulled in Neil Finn - ex of Crowded House.
Not criticising Buckingham at all but I think both Campbell & Finn are better.
I'm no big F Mac fan but I'd consider going just to see Mike and Neil
I know, right? Buckingham has his own vibe with all the travis picking - I cut my finger picking teeth on his work. But Finn and Campbell can take this to the next level I think. Can't wait to hear some of this work in a recording...
Cool! Always great to meet another Tull fan. Last time they were in my town, they had this young violinist with them named Lucia Micarelli and she was fabulous. And they played killer renditions of Bohemian Rhapsody and Cashmere just before the noise ordinance kicked in. Who knew?
Mike is such a humble guy and great player. I saw Tom Petty on his last tour and they were awesome. Mike is the perfect rock guitar player - always played cool parts at the right time - nothing he played was ever out of place.
I was never a Fleetwood Mac fan but with Mike and Neil added to that band it's got to be a good show - I would even consider going to see them now.
Thanks for the clip it was cool.
I chose not to go to the last concert Tom Petty did in my town because the tickets were a bit high. I regret that decision.
But totally agree about Campbell's very appropriate playing. It's always about the song and I found his attitude about bridges interesting - "as short as possible" - he's apparently not looking to show off. David Gilmour is another one who comes to mind when it comes to playing parts that are well suited and appropriate to a given song although he's not afraid to step out and spend a bit of time doing a solo.
Thanks for posting this Stevo. Mike is just an awesome human being and musician. Will forever miss the Heart Breakers. thankfully though, He shows no signs of slowing down. Thankfully for all of us.
