Tom Petty Guitarist Mike Campbell Gives Video Tour Of His Guitar Collection
Mike Campbell, guitarist for Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, has a new video documentary premiering online, taking viewers on a virtual tour of his guitar collection. Campbell is known to have quite a large collection of guitars, so this should be interesting viewing not only for Petty & Campbell fans, but for guitar aficionados in general.
"Over two days, I sat with a crew and went through my collection, playing and discussing the guitars as we went." Campbell said. "I have been asked many times why I choose the ones I use, and why I use so many. The resulting video series answers these questions and many more about the instruments. The stories behind the acquisitions, demonstrations of their tones, and parts they played on recordings with my band over the many albums we have put out."
'Mike Campbell - The Guitars,' is a web-only video diary delivered in fifteen chapters. It was directed by Justin Kreutzmann and is currently available exclusively to members of Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers' Highway Companions Club at TomPetty.com.
"I had a blast sharing the Fenders, Gibsons, Rickenbackers, Gretschs, Martins, and many more I have acquired over the years," added Campbell, "If you love good music and guitars as much as I do, I'm sure you will have fun watching this series."
In the meantime, Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers are set to begin yet another worldwide tour on April 18.
