Happy Birthday to the greatest guitarist in Rock 'N Roll! Mike turns 65 today. Born in Panama City, Florida, February 1, 1950.
There's just something about Mike's playing that I've always admired, respected and strived to show other guitarists. Remember in th 80s when all the Heavy Metal guitarists were playing as many notes as humanly possible in the least amount of time? Mike Campbell can pick up a guitar and tell them all to f#$k off in 10 notes or less. Actually, I guess he has. On stage he's a humble guy who steals the show without stealin' the show. I just know I'd be embarrassed to look at a guitar, yet alone pick one up anywhere near him.
Happy birthday, Mike. And thank you!
