Mike Campbell, of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers and Fleetwood Mac
fame, has turned his longtime side project The Dirty Knobs into a frontline artist project. The band came together nearly 13 years ago after Campbell met guitarist Jason Sinay (Neil Diamond, Ivan Neville) at a session and liked the way their guitars sounded together. What began as a less structured project for Campbell in between Heartbreakers touring became something else altogether when they added bassist Lance Morrison (Don Henley) and drummer Matt Laug (Slash, Alanis Morissette). The band released their debut full-length record Wreckless Abandon on BMG in November 2020.
