Imperial Ball 8 – Mike Campbell & The Dirty Knobs


The curtain rose for the first part of the show and suddenly I found myself standing in the middle of a highschool auditorium in Anaheim, staring at the stage on which Mike Campbell and his Dirty Knobs performed a show at it’s best. Right in the center of the stage between two shining Hot Rods, Mike mostly played his Duesenberg Mike Campbell II Signature Hollowbody Guitar and I for one – who has never seen the Dirty Knobs live before – was really impressed by the sound of the whole show.

Intellectual songs and extremely well articulated guitar playing, that was what this show was all about – “She likes to lick my finger” being my personal favourite, still stuck in my head.

Thanks very much Mike!
It was a real joy!
