I’m a big fan of The Dirty Knobs. It’s a little hard sometimes to find proper info on them, but essentially they are a side band of Mike Campbell of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. They stayed under the radar while the Heartbreakers were active, and are essentially a “boys club” of a band; they gave themselves nicknames. They play often obscure covers, and are an outlet for Campbell’s prolific songwriting abilities.
I was just dying to do something with those nicknames to send to the guys, so finally I buckled down and started designing some shirts–I even made one for Chinner, their guitar tech.
Who knows if they will ever wear them? But, maybe they will get a kick out of them and make me proud.
Check them out on YouTube and Get Knobbed!
This is my favorite performance, but I would NOT play this out loud at work.
