"Were you talking about the the sort of meeting in the middle on the rhythm thing on june. Mary ning what else is what. What is his magic. You know what you earned from that to. Oh what did i learn. I mean in a sense of like being around it like is it a songwriting trip. Is it presents trip is. It's all those things it's confidence and is just I mean nobody can do what he does. Van leader thing to Yeah You know one thing. I learned from him here That was a little awkward. At first was that he. When he was touring with us we've rehearsed and learn a lot of songs. Certain way right we get on stage. He might change it right. He was brave. That's the word. He's bread the heartbreakers. If we had a song it works. I guess we're gonna play it like this because we don't want to lose them and he kinda thought. Well i'm gonna do what i wanna do. They lose probably won't but i'm not worried about getting back. Yeah i'll get them back. Bill pay for that but i think it was just a courage and bravery and everything he did. I hope i learned some of that from him. So now. when you look back at the catalogue you know of. What were you like when you think about the tom. Petty's heartbreakers records. You which ones are like. Oh man that one fucking magic forever. I mean i know. There's a lot of fun but like which record what were you guys. Did you think you guys are really like that. I record and i'll tell you why when i go back to. Their was those songs and it was us finding who we were You know especially like american girl. I remember when we did that. Song like an a hurt it back as i like. How do we do that. But that's us. Nobody else can do that right. We can do that. That's our thing right away saying it. The the the lyric imagery the harmonica and the instruments. We've found a thing and so that album is is an all songs on it. I like me too. I always go back to that one. I mean i like all the album different different songs here and there but they had to pick one. I'd to go with that one. Isn't that amazing. Yeah i record. Yeah i feel the magic. Magic of discovery refined. We're finding what we are. And i can hear that in the tracks. Yeah and how long did it take record that thing Not too long Because it must be different men that we'll even but you guys were pointing live said the last couple but like even watching jimmy ivine like dealing with. Obviously you're different than bruce but like the studio thing. I've i recorded something in the studio once and i'm like holy shit. This is a job and you keep this fresh well. That's the challenge is part of the gig right now. I get it. yeah But i guess the purity of the first record and then like did you find you know because of the studio you becomes different. We know it's interesting. The first record wasn't really done in a proper studio was in the shelter office. They had brought some gear out from tulsa Up in an office so it was just a room and then a window in a little room that they made into a control room and he was like a garage early. We were just all. They were learning how to record as we were learning how to play and right and so when you get into a sterile studio it can be a real challenge to keep the energy spark going. Yeah i bet it's a but that's part of the job just that's the hardest part of it. Imagine it yeah plain live you love it. I love playing live. Yeah i'll never stop. I can't believe how many dates you guys must've done on the road all the time. Yeah i think about that too. I don't know how you guys hit the notes. Every hit him right every time. But i guess that's the job to Well you love it. You love something you do. Yeah you know. I love playing and i just can't imagine stopping and i just. I'm looking forward to this. You know. I don't care if there's two people they're going to show up and play a good thing about that. When you're in advance there may be two people out there but you got all your guys over here you go. Yeah we're gonna play well man. It was great talking to you. You too and I really hope you wish you all success in the world in a when we play the come down and see us. Yeah i definitely will you know i. I love your music band. You're doing yourself. And i love all this shit. You deal with tom. Thanks for being here. Thank you very much mike campbell.

"And you know. It's very similar to when i first started learning guitar right. I listen to a beatles record. What's he doing the court you know and the course of that challenge you. Learn things right that you can take from. Yeah and so. We had the same experience with data. Looked at it like or if say at the harpers we're going to learn a cover that had a guitar. Pardon i'd go to learn. At least respect respect how it started and i found it was very interesting process to to study those songs. Yeah come and figure out what was going on guitar. I learned a lot. Yeah i think because he's a different kind of guitar player than he is. Yeah and somebody's were similar though. Yeah like Say go your own way at the end. What the soaring guitar that kind of stuff. We'd be playing a similar way. Sort of and so those things were easy. Some of them were intricate finger. Picking lines he was doing too little work for me to to pick it out and figure out what's going on but i think i got it down pretty. Are you going to make a record with them. Maybe oh i don't know yet. I know we're going to take a year and a half off and then see what they wanna do. He's a hell of germany all that rhythm section. I loved every night. john. And mick yeah a fan. Yeah ali peter green. Yeah i liked Page back in clapton. The ad. And mick taylor maybe more sure why but peter green was definitely you ever played with mick taylor. I haven't but i would love to. I love his playing. Yeah i haven't heard him in a while. Oh he's good. Yeah he has that feel. Yeah oh yeah yeah. Yeah so when you okay like. I didn't realize until i kind of poking around doing research. 'cause me and my buddy deane we're talking about Don henley and you made some big songs with him. Yeah i mean. I mean to the eh. The boys of summer right right now. What was the process of writing with don henley the same as writing with tom. Oh yeah what. I was doing with tom. I would put music together and make a demo with all the instruments. Show it to him and if he liked it he would start over and come up with them and it was the same. Madonna had the piece of music. Yeah i went over his house a little cassette player and sat down at the desk. He listened in total silence. Right and then. I said okay and left and on the way home the phone rings. I wrote the great sondhi your music. I can't wait to do it. It happened just like that. But how does it call like that happened. Why why are you over there. Well jimmy ivy jimmy. Eileen he purdue had heard that the devil mine kami said you know don henley's looking for songs right. I said what kind of song does he want. He said imagemaker interesting. You're already well on your way with the with the heartbreak already. Deepening was your guy right. He was he was. he produces. Damn the torpedoes in a couple of albums. In that era with us okay. First mainstream commercial breakthrough was produced by jimmy. He made the huge they. Dammed damn the torpedoes. Yeah with heavy and here comes my girl and all those songs that was that was jimmy jimmy ivan. Yeah and then Oh so dan okay. So active fourth record or your third third okay. So that was the big record it. It changed everything. Yeah for us. Yeah yeah yeah and so. He's sort of like yeah. Hey don's booking where you got going sitting on on. Well he's an interesting guy is brilliant because he also took we had stop dragging my heart around Which i had written with tom. Yes and we had cut it and we weren't so sure about and i think that could be a duet. He just happened to be doing a record with stevie nicks that has over here over here. Now that happen yeah. Are you guys still have friends. Oh yeah yeah we have a deep connection and your first. Two records are on shelter. Records with was was was leon around. Leon was around. He didn't play on those records. But it was his excuse me his producer denny cordell who produced us and so we were around his house. Does that happened with shelter. Why you so you guys are. Because i remember like what i remember when i was a kid when the first time pretty record come out like he didn't really catch on here until later right right there was like england was a big deal and they you know and then he came back around -actly. Yeah that's how it happened but with shelter records. Did you know anything about shelter records. You like no. We were in florida and we made a demo. Yeah and send it out. And i think maybe london records called back a- and then shelter clock and tom liked denny. Cordell be all did. Yeah we just hit it off and so it was his label. He we were going to go out to california. We stopped at tulsa on the way. Where leon how to studio and met danny into the recording. Then we went out to la and then he took us under his wing and helped us get a couple. Yeah because like Those essential you are into a from that guy a lot. He was great at saying. Well you know this some not so good. The song go more in this direction. He had an overall view wasn't a musician but he new songs any new style and he he could tell which direction we should go in helped us that way a lot and like because i i know that leon russell he brought in That later freddie kingship you shelter kale all that stuff. It was a great time right. Twilly was unbelievable. Right right it was a really interesting time stuff was going. I mean like. I remember i don. I'm sure you've covered this ship before. But i mean obviously but like wh- what makes the big shift i mean jimmy comes in but you guys were between labels or he took you house i happen. Well it's a long story but we shelter record. Yeah and they were having some financial trouble. They sold their label to abc records without telling us And then abc sold. Mca without telling us so. We went wait a second. You know you can't do that. We don't want to be on that label gonna record for. Mca yeah yeah. So we did a lawsuit tour to make money because we're going to. We were playing hard while you fix our deal. They had under old deal which was kind of shit. Yeah and we'll go into details revival. We wanted to get money negotiate. Yeah and then we'll record and eventually they came around and around that time We producer and we'd heard Patti smith record because the night raw. Oh jimmy ivine produced that..

"Let me jeff lynne. Record georgia hold other book. I mean i can tell you what a wonderful guy he was. But a great influence Guitar wise his guitar parts. And i think when. I when i play guitar i try to emulate those guys heath and george harrison richards keith richards and all those the band's the kinks animals their guitar parts were really simple yeah but melodic and they don't getting away the song job and then they allow the song to blossom. Well that's interesting like separate this too because like you know. I'm a huge keith guy. I'm a george to a degree. But i don't know that i really can understand or appreciate specifically what he brings to the guitar. That makes him who he is. What george yeah. Well he's a melodic player and he's got a little bit of chet atkins finger picking your okay and he's just a each just to feel player he plays with the great feel. There's a sadness to to sadness place with salt. Especially when he started playing slide he found a whole new voice for himself and he was just a genius at taking those songs lennon mccartney songs and finding bits for it right like for instance that song You can't do that. Dan danner told me one day. They were recording that and they didn't have the guitar part and they had the cords and they say okay. We're going to do this track now. George do something so he just went down down which is to lick. It makes the song right. And that's the kind of player he was. He could come up with just the right piece. That fit the song that's them and that's genius and me and all those songs listed guitar closely. It's pretty brilliant playing. Yeah it's kind of it. No no one sounds like that. No one wants to song and those ones that he wrote early on to me. Were just haunting. Don't bother me. yeah that's bone. don't own bone. what song yeah right and and Did you did you watch the lenin thing above us only sky thing. yes yes. Did you see that moment. Where he george comes in and he's got this white and and and when it's working some on the piano out and he just looks at george for guitars support and it was like nothing was said and it was right there. Yeah it was so moving to me nothing was. It was so clearly symbiotic. Trusted george in that moment. Well that's his genius georgia's genius another example which i read And i love her. Yeah down down down down. They didn't have that. Wow george came up with that so like. What was your relationship with tom. Along those lines in terms of songwriting. Well it was. Telepathic would There was not ever much discussion on. We just had a. I had a affinity for him and he headed if any for me and he would usually write songs on his own when he did in coming on acoustic or just rhythm. And i would just sit down like you mentioned mystery man You know he started playing now. I don't know we just knew what he wanted. And i was able to to make it work with him. Yeah we had that thing was here for. Yeah it's a once in a lifetime thing. We had a man and so i i in all of the song so usually what would happen as he'd have it on the acoustic and you guys would build it out. He will usually have courts and them and seeing and you write and join in right join in and it always seemed to find a place. Yeah and i don. I talked to ben mon- while he's sort of like wizard of kind of a hassle. Yeah it's sort of interesting because my listen to your so with the the dirty knob solo like there's something about that record maybe like mojo maybe one of the later records but a the heartbreakers. But there's something about how you seem to cover. It's almost like the band like you know. This is american music. All its ways de dig. What i'm saying. I i know but i didn't think about. I know what you're saying. It's a nice complement right you. 'cause like i think tom petty and i you know i go and you guys. The tom petty song book is like fucking classic. American thing man. I think you right. I'm proud of the songs you are good. And i think that's why the heartbreakers lasted one lasted so long as the songs are good and they hold up over time. Yeah for sure man. Oh definitely but now when you go out with 'cause i how. How did the fleetwood mac trip happen. Well tom passed away. And i took some time. And then i realized i'd always thought my band dirty knobs it if tarp biggers ever take a hiatus. That's what i wanna do. Is that the second to the last show by the way at the ball. Oh yeah well good you get a piece of that. So i was i Time to a little bit. And then i started working on the knobs record. Had it like three quarters or more done. And then i got the phone call from mc one day and He's met him before i had met him. Yeah i dunno session with watch. But i didn't know him that well But i know stevie really well anyway. He called up and said you know. I've been listening to your catalog. And we want you to join. The band is not an audition. We want you to join the band. So i immediately thought ok joined a ban. We're going to make a record. And i said well it starts with the song he did. Well we have some tour dates. I we have to tour commit okay. Tricking the ended a tour. Well not tricking was fine with it shirt. That's just the way my mind works. Let's make recipes so we put that on the back burner which is fine and i said okay. The tour ended up being a year. And a half. And god bless the knob stay waited for me and so when that was over i went right back to work on the record and you know in a week or two i finished it but like when you go when you step into the to those songs right. Yeah i mean. That's that's a heavy catalog. I some shit be great song songs. Now and lindsay's very specific type of player absolutely. Oh i didn't see any of the shows what do you do you do his legs. Or what absolutely what you have to on those songs It was a challenge for me. Because i wasn't used to doing that is to play in my own songs. Psalms petty song to yeah heartbreakers on it. Yes yes songs. That i came up here i was. You know like you take any of those songs. Like dreams. It needs guitar lines or the song doesn't work. So i took the challenge on and i dug and learn them yeah and and played them accurately and in other places and other songs where they wanted something me to step out at my own thing but i looked at it like my job is to honor the songs right and honor this band which i love and do the best. I can to recreate those guitar. Parts the best i can. Yeah and that's what i did did you. Did you have to like figure out the equipment. And you know i use my amps and my guitar but i did have to study the records quite a bit. Really dig into what's he doing there. What is that no. Oh i get it now. Okay now when you do that for so long i can't. I assume you respect him as a good car. Are you when you do the when you kind of have to figure out someone else's shit at this point in your life where you sort of like. Wow that's interesting you know that. He made that decision..

"I played it for a few days and i thought you know. This is not gangly. I'm used to. I don't know that. I'm you need this especially for that kind of money. So i said you know. I'm going onto our thanks anyway and get it back to them My wife calls me about a week. Later she goes you know what i think he should get that if for nothing else for investment you know she's one of those and so i said okay. Call him back. he'd sold it. Oh so flash. Forward five years later. Yeah the one. I have now same story. Hey mike got this. One is even better than the other one. Take it for a few days and if you like it. Yeah so. I did and by now. The number was five times. What the god which i did not have on me at the time but once again i was getting ready to go on tour and this guitar i fell in love with so i said look and What if i give you half now and half at the end of the tour so we worked at a deal. Yeah and so. That's the one i have. Now you sit on mojo in hypnotic guy. Tom loved that. We started making records around that sound around that guitar on that song. You mentioned that's the one on. Don't wait don't wait. Just a thick pall on the base pickup. The eric clapton trick for you. Turn the tune all the way up e. the way off base pick up all the way up amp cranked up and it gets the kind of woman tone they call. How is that what it is. And that's what i was doing. I was trying to emulate that sound man. Yeah were you. When you got that through what do you. what are you point through. Well mostly little vendors I think there. I got fifty. Three deluxe does your beautiful at on that particular album. Though i i was using his duisenberg amp they made which is relatively small it was modeled after that. You got to crank them right. Yeah i mean they get the tone you gotta push it up there until it gets sweet but it's sort of wild to me that you were that you're so used to jangling guitars you know. What was that ten years ago. Yeah that when you bought that one. I mean that was sort of the that you identify. You've got i connect you with fenders rickenbach right exactly. I mean that was the trip all the way back like when you started. That was the stuff that we love that we grew up on like we come from florida right now. What was going on florida where it should have been seventy two seventy two and was right. When allman brothers are happening in leonard. Skinner and all those bands were playing. Les pauls did you go. See the allman brothers. I never saw the scanners. I saw skinner. We played some gigs with them. Back in back and forth in the back of a truck back in jacksonville and stuff and they were nobody at either. How how were they guys. I didn't get to talk to much really but We played some get with them and said hi to them and they were friendly. Good jacksonville from they were great. I just like they do now. It's kinda crazy right. You just had a habit. I guess early trucks. You played with them. He said you. Yeah it was. It was a flatbed truck. Set up in a in a in a field you know and there was like two hundred hippies. There it was festival it was so called love. And i guess oh yeah the fact seventy but it was funky but it was beautiful. Yeah yeah but to get back to my point A lot of bands in florida around that time. We're going after the allman brothers sound like two three guitars thick. Yeah right and we never really liked that. We were inspired more by the beatles. Stones animals kinks The bright jangling break you know really kinks in their early kinks or major influence. Yeah really so. When heartbreaker started making records we had rickenbacker fenders mostly via and that became the sound that we were used to the bright. Jangle sound. So the les. Paul was another world for me. I had to get used to it. And then i found a way to do it. That's why it took a while A little while ya not too long. But i mean i remember like listening to Like the like the first heartbreakers record like that. It's so weird when you think about these records because like i've listened to that first heartbreakers record you know Thousands of time. Well i mean you know what i mean all my life thank you listen to it. I remember i got in high school. But it's strange that my favorite songs on there are not that you know like mystery man. What a great fucking song. And that's a one take. Yeah really yeah and do you. And tom wrote that song. Yeah i wrote the guitar. Riff is great man. It's like slow straight up country. Where if that was my fender broadcaster. Yeah tom played a broadcaster and that was my main guitar. But that song's perfect example. Tom had the course doodo. Yeah yeah and it turned into that song. Very van morris influence shirt with that. But that help you at those open strings. Wrangled you do. Yeah we we stumbled on that and also Wild one forever. Hello yeah that fucking love that song thank you. He seemed to share of it too. It's a real. It's a real teenage kind of teenager. Well there you just sit there thinking about the girl that i couldn't get i'm still a teenager in heart. Yeah yeah well you gotta you gotta be so like moving through all that stuff i mean the. Did you guys do what you think about it. Yes great good memories. yeah it's it's. It's always the songs for me. That like of course. American girl. But i mean i all the other ones that that was my first rocket around with you to that nor that was crazy man. That sound downtown. Dan like what was that remember. Yeah the rocket around. The was the first song i ever wrote with tom. And it was my rift dangling down right right right the broadcaster. Yeah and he wrote those great words to it and that we were off and running. Oh man and it's so before that though when you guys were just hanging around in florida like i know you guys the mud. Craig much Do you guys play. That's when he started with those guys. Yeah tom had a band called mug. Yeah and then i joined. Yeah but we just out there. Like i remember seeing the documentary. And he's sorta got captured. This guy like you kind of lived somewhere in the country like yours. Kind of guitar hermit selena. Yeah sort of a young wizard. Well yeah the wizard part. I had a house out in the country with drummer randall. Marsh and i had seen mud. Crutch play at the college. Yeah and they were kinda burrito brothers tight ban they're doing country number country rock the harmonies and until then i'd been in like blues type bands and then Semi ban broke up.

What the fuckers. What the fuck buddies. What the fuck sticks. What the fuck happy thanksgiving. I hope you did what was right for you and for others in your fucking life. I hope you did that. It strikes me that not a lot of people. I don't think it's that they don't give a shit. There's just certain a certain air of entitlement and rolling the dice. Maybe i won't get it. I probably won't get it if i do get. It won't be the bad one. I won't get the bad one. Tell people start thinking about aids after magic. Johnson just kept living. That's maybe i maybe it's not so bad. Maybe i don't have to. Maybe i don't have to wrap this fucker. it's all bad. It spreads it's bad but look look if you're with family. I think you should know this folks that this is actually our twelfth thanksgiving show our twelfth and generally as many of you know who've been listening t- for years. I usually have little almost like a guided meditation for thanksgiving listeners. I guide them out of their homes out into the streets to cry and take a walk. I got to put something together for this one. This one is different. I would like to mention that. Mike campbell is on the show today and he's the guitarist. Was the guitarist for tom. Petty and the heartbreakers. He's a member of the rock and roll hall of fame rolling stone named him one of the greatest guitarist of all times. And he's just put out a record with his band. The dirty knobs called reckless abandon. Now look we've been sitting on this talk for a while. He pushed up the release of this thing because of covid and other things whatever it was but we recorded this in february february when the album was supposed to come out february before the play february before the lovely lynn. Shelton this sphere february. Before my girlfriend died different fucking world man and i don't know if you can hear my voice if you can hear that love was still alive actively in my voice that fear of getting a disease that could kill ya not in my voice. Not in my heart. Not my mind. Just a standard horrendous anger and terror of trump. now that's passing but this was a different time and it was just back in february. And i remember i was. I was trying to figure out how to approach mike. You know what to say to him. And then i realized how much i missed tom. Petty at that time and still do we all if you think about it. How can you not miss tom. Petty and i just remember that This is actually you know like before. Lynn passed away before condolences. Getting in giving them was a regular part of my life. I thought that the proper thing to do to open this conversation with mike was to offer my condolences for the The loss of his friend. Tom which i did risk. It was heavy moment. But it's a moment. I'm very familiar with now from the other side but i do think it was the right way to open anyway. I'll share that with you.

"Covers just for fun mary. Jane turned out. Good yeah i can remember all side or no. I don't even know if you know the story but Tom sent me a rehearsal. Tape of song ideas and And he's like okay. What what do you think. It was like a separate writing session for the greatest hits like what's going to be on the greatest hits and it had a bunch of songs on it and i remember not liking any of it. I just didn't think it was good but inbetween inbetween. A couple of songs or in between one of the songs was the guitar riff and it. Was you playing. What ended up being last dance with mary. Jane that guitar riff was like. It wasn't one of the songs on the tape. It was just a riff inbetween. Song happened a lot like a preparation. If yeah yeah. That happens a lot with with our band between songs. And i remember saying tom's like that is the song. Whatever that is is the song cool mystery. Yeah worked out. It worked out. Yeah crazy but a life certain. Feel old but you're right. I mean a lot of people. We've had be had. Several peaks and most bands are lucky to get one absolutely. I don't know we're just blessed. But i think we just you know tom. And to some extent me tuned into some songs that are timeless. Absolutely what was the energy like on the less tour. It was great. It really is beautiful and We had no idea. I mean he had a little bit of hip pain but i know if it had been really bad. We'd heard about it. Yeah it was just a minor And he was happy. And i remember the last the last gig hollywood ball. I looked at his face at one point. He was just beaming and he was so proud of the audience and so proud of him and the ban to be up moment. And i remember thinking. Wow i want to. I want my head being that space so it was a beautiful tour. I mean if you gotta go out. That's a good way to go out. I still can't believe he's gone. How many two years now or over. Two years yeah. I'm okay with it. Most of the time it hits me now an end but you know you have to just makes no sense bizarre. But that doesn't make sense mishap. You know I try not to dwell on it too much. of course. i'm very proud of what we did though when i hear stuff on the radio again. That's good work now. I remember the day after getting the news.

"mike campbell" Discussed on Broken Record

"Here's mike campbell and conversation with rick rubin. Let's let's start talking about gainesville if that school game gainesville with some of the happiest times of my life. that's where i I got out of high school in jacksonville. I went to college in gainesville university of florida. An air force loan society. My dad was in the air force because we didn't have much money. But anyway i went to college there and there was a real Healthy music scene going on also bands and a couple of parks and on the university where you can play for free. And i started making friends with different musicians about about what you're about what you're was Seventy two high school in seventy. Who had it might crush become abandoned mud. Crush was a band with tom. Petty tom lead and some other guys in i they were. One of the band's was they would do country rock but they would throw in some original songs now and then and always see them at the a park employee. The free gigs. On the lawn. And i thought well these guys are are something going on here. You know and then. I had a band with randall. Marsh was a trio like a blues jam. Acid trio and turns out random live or sharing. I don't wanna get too long. We're sharing a farm town and saw a thing on the university student union Mud crush looking. For new drummer in rancho. I were kind of fed up with what we were doing. So i should give tarango. He might get a gig here. And i thought you guys were pretty good. They had harmonies and you know they weren't a jam band like we were. They actually had songs. And so i told him about it. And they came out to our farm to audition. Randall and i was in the back room and it turns out. They just lost their guitar player to that day. And so they're going randall. Do anybody there's this guy in the back. And i was a geek ahead. Came in cutoffs and short hair. I was not a hippie yet. I was not hip. How would you time to to twenty one something. Like that and Can't walk in there with my little japanese guitar and they just went. Oh god and then. I said it was tom to tom's. Tom lead. tom. Petty and jim lenihan. Who became our leading record. He was the lead singer. There's another story and randall. And so they said well we're looking at me like oh so. What songs do you know. How about johnny be good. Everybody knows that right down and looked at me and tom tells a story on the tour. He says at the end of the song he said like. I don't know who you are but you're in my ban forever in a true story and you know he was telling me on the last tour it was a little bit They forgot how i looked. I i fix that time. But i got a better guitar but we just hit it off right away and i realized tom was writing songs and i was starting to write a little bit too. Not as good as him. But i had the inkling to right and so we hit it off and he showed me some songs. I shouldn't goes regiment grand that you should keep working on that and so we just became fast friends from then on we just connected and select seemed like any time he would have an idea. I knew what to put with it. Or if i had an idea. He knew what to put with instinctively. Just wearing them magical things. We pros pass beautiful. I do miss him. Let's go back let's go to. Let's go back even further. First memories of music was the first thing that got you excited about mutual. That's easy my dad My dad was an air force and he would come home. Put on a record landed couch and just zone out for an hour. And it was either elvis or johnny cash and i would look at like whatever he's hearing is cut him completely hypnotized. He's really deep. Ended us and so i listened to it and i'm immediately picked up on the guitars. Scotty moore and luther perkins who played johnny and just was enamored with the sound and then i asked him one day dead. What do you listen to johnny cash. So much he goes because he speaks the truth. Who words of wisdom you know and that was my first and of course the generation they came on tv and everything changed and ahead have guitar which i couldn't afford but that was mind when i saw them in just blew my mind because up until then you'd watched ed sullivan show which only place to see new music and be like some guy up there singing and band somewhere out. Didn't even see them. It's just a singer. And the beatles came on first of all they were almost my age and there was no band behind the curtain. Guys playing bass and singing. The drums are right there. They're all the four little combo and they're doing it with no help from anybody and they're really fucking good and the girls are going nuts. That's what i wanna do so you got a guitar after seeing the beatles. Yeah i got my. I got a pawnshop term. My mom got me a fifteen dollar guitar. That i couldn't empl unplayable but i didn't know i thought why these guys are good. It's just so hard. How do they do it. I would bleed. You know. I loved it so much i would just play until i bleed and i just got the bug and it's like once i found the guitar. Nothing else mattered I'm going to play guitar as much as i can. I gotta go to school. But when i get back on guitar and i just loved it still do so. Then you're in mud crunch and Kind gigs to do. What was it like being in that band. Well it was. It was a lot of fun and we barely made enough money to make a living which was really cool. Because i was living in my friend's garage a fifteen bucks a month. He let me live there and With mud crutch we would play. Women's club dances. Sometimes the university would give us a couple of hundred bucks to play Fraternities occasionally not too much because we didn't play covers our biggest gig where we really got good was was the dubs steer room on the edge of town a topless bar spy. I get your mind. Him is his best story of all and it was great because it was four sets a night all week long case so we had to throw in a few covers. Because we only had so many originals. But we would say here's one by santana and then we do our own you know. And they were so drunk. That didn't care. But the funny thing is the topless bar on the like the third song they had to Dance stance on either side of the stage and these two girls jump up and they'd have they're almost half thirty two sunday pull their tops off and the first thing they did it. The plan never seen it before. Oh okay and we learn real fast but and then on thursdays they'd have wet t-shirt contest t shirt contest. This is gainesville k. Is a lot of deep redneck. Culture and so dubs steakhouse topless bar. You're going to get some of the seediest residents are gonna come to that bar and they were great. They were so drunk. They were great. Audience is usually but Wet t-shirt night. They'd had the girls get up and they drench them. They'd had the t shirts. Sunday drink water. So you could see everything and they'd get up and dance and all the guys who've come down front like all the drooling drunks but we got good. 'cause we played for like two months every night and i got like a hundred bucks a week. Well you know for playing you know many hours but that was a lot of money and we had a house just at the street that we shared and pay rent and buy some wine or birders could live. You know as musicians. The first time. I was a working musician and i really liked. You.

"I'll just go through you know Period I just don't feel it. You know I just leave the room you know but when it comes back come back in the room but not too often do I have blocked now? And do you A. and do you ever write with anyone else in the room? It seems like all the time it's just you alone. Well, it's always been pretty much me alone even tom and I would barely sit eyeball. Because that's kind of it's kind of intimidating for me to pull that magic out of the air with someone else is almost like a private thing between you and God you know yes lot on this. this friend of mine who became a really good friend. Chris Stapleton I did sit with house at his request and we wrote some songs one of them is on the. Song yet such a good song and a couple of other songs are on his record which I haven't heard finish yet. But he he I guess I helped him with a couple of those and he gave me credit. So we didn't sit together I kind of enjoyed it with him because we just got along so well. So know there's something normally done she usually beyond I'm safe working on my music by myself can get everything sorted out first. But y'all that super cool that you wrote songs on Chris's record. His new record is so good. Yeah. He's amazing. He's such as you know, which saw what song that you write on his rank was. Once, you burn Dallas GonNa Watch you burn in. Arkansas I think that's That's so great. He was here I had him saying I'm pistole APAC. Yes No, I know that one. And that's just so kick ass on your record He's great. Happy for his his success. You'd like I was struggling for a long time, right? And stuff I just wanted to ask these days. What do you do to kind of keep your self centered like do you journal? Do you meditate? Do you take long walks like how do you? How do you sort of like manage your state during something like touring with fleetwood Mac or about to launch your album? How do you deal with this stress and tension? Well all of those things pretty much every morning I have some bloodhounds. And I take them for a walk in early warning if there's my head out. And they love it and then I have family I stay home a lot these days but I have my studio where I can work if I'm so inclined, and that keeps me sane and then I have family have some grandkids that come over to you know twice a week I get together with them. With precautions and Watch a Lotta Netflix. Yes at night, we have our net flicks, our and. I just. You know just like everybody else I. Feel you know grateful I have a nice place to hang out while the stuff is working itself. But I haven't been anywhere. Occasionally, we'll make go pick up food but. no. Of course, we all have to protect ourselves. I have a mantra sometimes, it was given to me that I sometimes use if I'm really not centered at calms. Me Down. Mostly. Music Calms me down the play. The Guitar helps me you know. Yeah that makes sense and. I guess lastly, man We can talk about fleetwood Mac, a bunch of stuff and other time. But lastly, for now, what is it about this record now in this time in your life that you're most looking forward to and and your mind like who's the perfect audience for a dirty knobs? Who are you thinking of when when you're when you're making the record and how does it feel to to to to have your thoughts be the ones, your words, your thoughts be the ones that people are going to be singing along too. Well. I hope he will sing along to help people get to hear them I'm mostly looking forward to playing live with these songs and I hope that we get a crowd of. Like minded people that like the kind of music like that will relate to the bathroom and we had some. Great results playing around southern California before everything went bad we voice. You know some people were my ace and people younger. You know if you like the kind of music I, like I think you'll love this band because his full of influences from what turned me on I was young. And I just want you know I just WanNa keep brightening play I. Love playing fervent audience big small I don't care like to be the The interchange of energy. And I'm really proud of the songs and I WanNa hear him loud. You know with an audience that's what I'm looking forward to well. Yeah. I JUST WANNA say that hearing? Hearing songs like Analii fucked that guy. pistol-packing. Mama Southern Boy I. It is so good to hear. Anna to me is a song that could have been on any record. You've ever worked on and Don Henley Wood had a massive hit with that record I think. Rush. I'm already singing along to your album and. I really am and when You New York Post pandemic I'll I'll be there shouting along right in front. So. They come back and say, hi. Will you've done a great interview by the way you really dug in deep even to the toilet area but.

"And they've got really sit over in the corner. So Hannity Qatar are play Johnny be good or something, and I noticed these guys are older than me ten years or me and they all stopped and stared at me. And they were like. Interesting up. They think I'm cool like maybe I'm maybe I'm pretty good. That's awesome. That's Sort of been my way. Maybe it carried through into my later years. We'll make I don't suck after all day like it or You know these people. Well, that's fascinating thing that the you actually have that in your head as a memory of. Of A moment where it didn't it SORTA stopped being your little personal thing that you just loved and like my dad wants to me when I was just beginning guitar. He said son if you learn to play guitar, you'll always have friends. And I didn't know what he meant, but I totally get it now because people are drawn to that and not to mention girls you know like I was very shy but I noticed it when I played the guitar, the girls would come over and talk to me. Right. So I said, well, this is something that works for me. and. That makes makes complete sense to me just how much you loved it, and then you love getting that response and I also wondered. Tom Leaden and his brother. And feld her get work. And they were from your town. I always wondered did that make it? All seem somehow possible? I'll carry on another story about Bernie Lab. Yes. A short thing on the same subject he was off in La had a record deal and start in the eagles and he would come to town. We'd all common goers house and pinkish brainwashed like out there know how do you how you do this? You get gigs and he was really nice to us. He said, well, you know you just you just get get after it and making keep practicing. And then I remember one day he came over to my house and Bernie was like a virtuoso. Banjo player. Just a great musician. Professional really high quality. Musician. And I sitting at my house one day and I had a little Japanese guitar plugged into my tape recorder speakers. And I was just playing kind of wailing down and he came in you know you're really good at that. Over really. So that's kind of happen for me. Is the talent carried me along it took me a while for my ego to catch up. Right, that's very I mean in a way that's because you didn't stop you know some people that they're so insecure maybe they won't play in front of people but at least it wasn't GonNa stop people I, suck I, love the too much right and so for you did practicing feel like practically feel like this thing that you love to just love never I I never thought youngest I. You know Tom Leaden. He taught me some bluegrass songs which I was moving wearing into blues and rock and Beatles stuff you some factual dot watson stuff and practice that just for the technique the picking. The right played on my own typically I would play. You know. Songs like the Beatles or stones that I knew are also would play blues and Chuck Berry but almost. Instantly, I would start trying to make up my own thing. You know I started playing stones others to courts were really cool. Can I do those to course meal plan backwards and I'll make up my own soul And also, but you make up words maladies to at that time or not beginning well, actually I did at first some. I. Showed the Tommy I had a little bit of a lyric. I don't remember what it was but I said Oh this is Collin Ron. Glad. I thought was shitting Oh that's interesting. So he can of gaining confidence but. Once I heard Tom's lyrics I kinda shut that switch off in me like I can't do that. He's he's way above me. As one of the best I mean he's one of the best to ever lived at. Lyrics, right like don't waste time trying to write marriage just play guitar with his. Right later said when I got older and had all this music, then I started trying to to to write my own words and stuff just because I wanted to. Like he was he couldn't handle all the music so I had to do it myself. So the one of the things that I I wanNA know about this this time period as you started, you guys go make the first record night I don did you didn't? Did you write anything on the first record? Yes. Rock around with you right. So how did that come to be that? You showed him? A song and he was like, okay I'll I'll do it. These instagram's that you do and I want to tell people go look at his instagram about you rack is unbelievable and I those instagrams or you tell the stories are so compelling Mike I think it's like one of the best things on all a twitter. Social Media. It's one of the best things. Let me turn to Sampon versa show you how sure and. I record and Denny. Cordell. Cordell wants came to to my I, my my wife. We couldn't afford it. We need the money for meant she went in and bought helped me by a T. F for track who she believed in me anyway and I got that t at Ford Track and I would just start making a demotion unbeaten on cardboard boxes over dubbing you know on the four trashes use it and I remember one day Denny Cordell came over to my house he said, well, what are you doin' played. Pretty Shitty Demo it was but it had something and he looked at me said if you if you. If you work that out of the more, you'll be a millionaire some day. Wow. You stop this guy that of his fucking mind but he heard something and he knew that guy that guy new concerns brilliant a great producer. and. Producer he was like a visionary right and so anyway, I was always fiddling in making stuff up. And one day I I was in the studio on the First Avenue is going. and. Exercise in that too. Our. Own. What's interesting about it is a had that much but I didn't have a song. ended. Then I went in from that I kind of went up to own..

"Spent that year Kinda hanging out living at Leon Russell's going back and forth to Leon Russell's house or whatever. Yeah. Wh You were in La then right and you were you playing in a different band like what did you imagine? What was your ambition at that moment? You guys came out the deal got weird. He's like maybe going to do something with Leeann. Roslea. There every day what is your life like during that moment before the heartbreakers really coalesced into this? But that's a good question and the truth is of the mud crutch thing fell apart because we didn't know what the hell will redoing. Tom Included but denny cordell believed in Tom and to me a partnership as well I believe. But at one point I, remember shelter records said, okay this band been. disbanded. We're going to keep Tom on as an artist and Mike. You can go to Tulsa and live at the the church always pick right now and I said, no, I'm in. La In that movement to Tulsa Oklahoma. That somehow just had a deep under a faith underneath that I could help him musically and so I, just hung out I didn't look for other work I. Just Kinda supported him waited for some songs to come together we go and record he'd always call me like we're going to record with Gordon or who are Al Coop rule every always because he wanted me there and so I never felt insecure about it like well, fuck this guy going do my own thing. I just felt that I should stick with the plan because something good was going to happen had since how did you support yourself during that year? Well, that the shelter gave me a meagre. Allowance enough to just you know and I had a girlfriend who's now my wife who had a job and we had. Written she, she pays some the bills and I got a little trickle from the company and We know we struggled but it was romantic time. You know it wasn't happy just to survive. And I love your faith man it's very moving to meet a here this like. That you recognize something in this magic that the two of you had you recognize something in him but more than that you recognize. This automated and you pay your whole life on it right? Well I. Guess. So now you put it that way. I. Didn't know any better. I to be honest as this week gives me very honest about this Tom Is. Very confident leader. He was very confident in his talent. He presented himself with a lot of. Leadership and power, and to be honest at that age in my life, I was kind of insecure I wasn't right confident and he was I followed his lead and it was a perfect marriage because I was there if he needed me but I wasn't challenging him for the for the upper control of the of the band. And as I've grown older, I've gotten more confidence in I know that I, what I can do but back, then I'm really really was just not that competent that I was you know. Other anything other than just a good. Oh, this is did you not know back then because they describe Tom described many times you know the first time I saw you play how in love with that he was and how he recognized in you how special you were. Did you not I'm always interested in this about artists. Yeah. You know that that some people are delusional and. That they think that they're incredibly great and they're just okay right and then other people it goes the other way like were you aware that you had a special series of gifts when you were twenty or twenty one we already writing riffs then did yeah I'll tell you something really really good question what he's asked me that before it's very personal, but I'll share this with you. I like I said I was kind of insecure why I don't know that'd be a job for Therapist Yorkshire but I knew I could play the guitar and I loved it. So much I was GonNa play no matter what. But little things would happen along the way. It would put a little light on me like I remember once I had been over in Gainsville. I'd been over to some friend's house I think Tom Leaden some buddies of his and they had a little bluegrass band or whatever, and we were jamming along and I said to help out I. had this little boogie thing I had written I was making up songs from day one I was always just making riffs and stuff what other do so I should have three twelve Bardo thing. And then I'll come the weeks later they say, Oh, we're playing at this. Bar At the college don't you can watch. US and sitting there. And another son ago. Here's your son Mike Campbell wrote. Wow, they played my song was like Whoa. You don't think well, maybe good. Maybe you must be pretty good. They wouldn't have done my song. So things like that would happen. You know that's awesome or I'll go back to the first the first time that ever happened. I don't know if you talk about this but I'll go do I really everyone wants to hear this tell me but okay, I'm learning guitar. Learning off of records. And I've got my Beatles Stones and Mike Bloomfield I loved. Yeah. Maybe I don't know Jimmy Enriches Bob Dylan a friend of mine from high school wasn't very good but he kind of turned me onto Bob Dylan which I just loved, and of course I looked of chuck. Berry. Anyway, this friend of mine was a very social kind of guy and in Jacksonville Florida he said, let's go this house of these guys I know they have abandoned they all live in a hippie house like a Commun- and they play bluegrass music and I said okay so I'm going along. And these guys older. You know they had old ladies and long hair. Also they didn't have parents. You know as a infamous suburbs really poor anyway. So anyway were sitting there and they Jan round little bit. My friend goes Mike..

"And he looks at you and he says. Man I don't want you to put this record out. We sound alike and the songs are the same and it'll take away from us and and and the way he describes it. You thought about it and you agreed and I gotta say most most creative people I, know. Would not have written would not have been able to just accept that it's very godfather in the best parts of the Godfather meaning your your loyalty to the dawn was so strong Vit-. My loyalty to my partner and my brother was stronger than my ambition to do my own thing. But let me make clear at the time you're talking about it was a different record if not this record with some other songs ahead. And I thought it was funny after being together with Tom for so many years I only started singing because they had all these pieces of music. He couldn't write to them. You didn't need. To many for him too. So I started doing it just to see what he might sound like with the singer on it. And the first time I ever played him something he looked at it and he goes. A that sounds like me. Run but I think since then I've made a conscious effort to try and. Filter out anything like that. It's too obvious. It'd be in find my own voice. So what he heard was really, it shouldn't come out. I don't think it was good enough at that time. Aside, from the fact that he you know we both as he told me. I thought it was kind of endearing that he wanted to. He wanted to own me. You know he wanted he wanted to have me. For him and not spread myself. Then he wanted one hundred percent of my attention on what we were doing together and I sorta thought that was kind of well, he must really you know feel strongly about this. So you know I'm I can easily get that to him because I do too. Yeah, and that's that's a very evolved I. Mean I think this is really useful for people because people constantly ask about collaboration and about like. I was watching last night I got an early look at the spread news breaks documentary, and it's the band back together making this album that they just made and. It's all those guys. You know the ones who are still alive and I look at Stevie and Bruce, and although Steve doesn't write the songs Bruce. That's the closest thing to create a partner he has and. And, of course, Steve made a different choice. He and I've talked about we're friendly and Steve left the band to go make his own stuff and he described on the airplane. I don't know if you've ever talked to him about it might ascribe this moment that he laughed at gets on plane and he said we got thirty thousand feet and I started crying and I was like what the fuck that just do right I mean. So for you, you're in that moment able to say to yourself. I love this partnership and I'll put my own dream Assad exactly the punchline is I. Really did love. Tom I love being heartbreakers and I wouldn't do any nothing more important than that. You know ambition to do at my own songs was not nearly as strong as my ambition to keep the band together and keep our partnership together. And I respected him. You know and I thought it was a good. He was he was very honest about it and I didn't feel bad at all about. Well, you know he wants he wants me to stick together with him. I can give them that you know and I'm happy to because we do great stuff together and I'll get to the other stuff you know always figured some Day The heartbreakers retire whatever and it's not like I'm not trying to set the world on fire with reckless abandon you know but I just want to put the songs out and have people enjoy them. I mean I've already had a Birdie. You set the world on fire on expect to compete with that. As as you know, any kind of musical success, I just want to have our. satisfaction. And that can wait can wait that can wait for the heartbreakers to finish what they were doing I never really had a problem with it. That's amazing to me. Beautiful I mean you're the friendship you guys had in the creative ship and made me expand please sorry reputation that goes back to back in the day when we started out in Florida, it was all for one one for all. You know he wasn't Tom Petty and we were crutcher whatever, and then as you got to La and things fell apart restructured the deal and then it became all is going to be Tom Petty and the heartbreakers and that point I said, well, fuck you it's it's it's five ways or nothing but I never really. Felt that strongly about it, I always felt well, that makes sense to me because he is the writer and he's he's a great leader and I'm fine to be in a supportive role in this band and So that's just where my ego sits with Tom that we were always very. COPACETIC in that way. Were you able to be? E. Equals with him other than in sort of certain kinds of decisions like that like. When the way people talk about the band and that book. When I watch documentaries. It does seem like you were the one person who tried to keep yourself. Really like. With him. So you whereas a lot of the other members of the band, it seems like at times get very chippy annoyed frustrates you. It seems like you just sort of put yourself in a spot where you're to be his constantly yary and. Help make this thing go and tell them the truth. In the organic you know it was it was a brother. Love we had organic wasn't anything we thought about it just it just felt comfortable. He Love Me I. Love Him. He respected me and he respected me enough to write songs with me. Yes. Equal and he respected me at some point. You know what? Mike should get co-production because he's nice decisions that came from him. That was me saying on Woodward production or whatever he always gave me because he wanted to keep me close. You know he didn't want me to quote Unquote get away and so he he gave me that respect in that came out of loyalty..

Two of my favorite songs that aren't Tom, petty, songs, boys of summer and heart of the matter and. And many more and has just a is just about to release an album. That has also been a really long time in the making. The dirty knobs which his band. and. I want to talk to you Mike about famous conversation you and Tom had about making a record like this a long time ago and when I heard the album, I understood it even more than when I read about it in wards great book so The amazing though and people who listen to this podcast no, I don't bullshit around about this stuff. On there on twitter talking about it the album. Thing Mike and it's got its own thing but I just WanNa say if people miss the thing that they loved about Tom Petty and the heartbreakers that is available for them in this album in terms of the grooves, the playing the melodic stuff that you do it, it just has brought a tremendous smile to my face to listen to this record has been writing the last few days. So Mike Campbell. Welcome to the moment. Well. Thank you those. You're very kind words and I agree with every single one of them. But No I mean dude, I gotTa start out by thanking You because I've listened to more teepee in the heartbreakers pandemic maybe any other time in my life I was I started really riding a bike rides during this thing I was basically just like. Listening to you guys and let me to question which is. What does it feel like to you to to know does it does do you still do let it in? Do you let it in the? The impact that the work you've done has made on people how much joy it brings them like how much it informs their lives and and what does it mean to you and return. Will yes. I don't dwell on it but I'm well aware because people tell me all the time you know that. Does say stuff like your music has been a soundtrack but my life you know. I always go mind too. But is the ultimate compliment you know as as a musician your goal really is aside from enjoying yourself is to inspire somebody. I've gotten a lot of feedback over the years to A. heartbreaker student and Tom. Did a good job of that and a real proud the music I think hopefully, it will continue inspire people long after I'm gone. Well. Yeah. Will because it's doing it long after you know. Tom. Right. Now we're speaking on Tom's, birthday. So happy birthday day just so anyone knows you know. Yeah. I. However President is he still in your life? Do you still was huge huge I mean he is. He left a whole as a friend and Compatriot. And You know I have to move on move forward, inder some freedom in that two of letting go the pass but. My I miss my friend a lot that I wish I could just call up the Hayman how you doing reset the greatest conversations and we were so close we just. Is Like we all from the day one we met we just we agreed on all the same kinda music that we thought was cool. And we had that bond and we headed to sane dream to carry that. That Energy Ford in our lives and so we did it together. And is his birthday today and a missing him. But you know I'm okay. Yeah I was I. I can only imagine I don't know if you like my creative partner who I make all the movies with and make my TV show with he's been my best friend since you're sixteen also. And so I have a full. You guys did is the stunts such a great scale and has like. I'm not comparing us in terms of output but I am in that in that the guy I make stuff with his but my best friend teenagers decided we had this dream in a way and. Relate to that part of it really heavy. And I can't imagine what it. What it feels like to you know I, read that you were hesitant about. Playing freefalling when you went out with fleetwood. Mac I was Gonna ask this later but as you bring up Tom in this way. And I know you said because you played it a lot of time but I was also wondering if it. Just. Sort of pull back into this thing that you were trying to move forward from. Well. I'm not consciously trying to move forward per se I'm just trying to be realistic. The fleetwood Mac Project was a wonderful experience and I remember when I first sat down with everybody. Put putting the set list together. St Goes into free fallen and you can on own. So to her those three course that's funny and she goes no, I. Think in the show, it'll be no she said I have an idea to put a little film tribute to him at the end of the show and you know she was right and. People loved it, and every night we do that song and I would just Really feel his presence. So I'm glad she talked me into it..

"It'll last all the way through Spring Churchill for some reason as more focused on on their main focus right now is to try to attempt there. They have a mechanism where they want to limit the funding to the J and make sure that it's regulated by the Illinois Raising Commission which in if if that would were to happen the horsemen have no representation we fought him long and hard here it just to do the right thing and and won and lost at the same time but businesses so typical of what takes place in a in a state like this where you have corporations that they that come in here and they they WanNa do what what they WanNa do and damned the damages or anybody else that gets in their way I I uh has as we talked after the decision. initially was was announced. It's particularly deflating just because you know it. It seemed like a really great. New Era was at hand that he had worked for and I know I know there's there's there's people say oh well uh if racing I if if Illinois or anywhere else if they can't stand on their own without without the gaming than than why why should the the game continue it it. It's funny that other other industries can can add product lines and acquire other other the other things and introduce other products or but but for some reason critics of of the industry seem to think that it if racing can't survive without casino gaming than it shouldn't survive I it's it's a kind of a bizarre and it's the lack of commitment of the horse horseman at Look. I'm just I'm just one person I will die for these horsemen and I mean that seriously literally rather than see them getting taken advantage of again a hundred million dollars hours and recaptured taken out of their first accounts the backstretch that's eroding deteriorating falling into the ground that was built ninety one years ago and still remains in the same state of disrepair year after year after year there the maintenance the maintenance crew here is great but they they're limited in what they can do. I been retaliated against the point where I've had I've I was moved to a twenty horses from Barnes one to to the receiving barn. I've been I had my licence tried to be taken away on two different occasions and for nothing by the way and both times they failed of course I I've been I've gone through to signaled disputes warn gate lockout and all because I've tried to get the horsemen here a fair adequate percentage to Percy's nothing for myself so this is the state of raising in Illinois backed by a commission that could care less about the horsemen personal and until that changes until we get some leadership in government takes a look at this and determine for themselves. What is he is in the best interests are racing? You can be sure that this is the way that it will continue to be probably said enough the day to get my license taken away again itself man. You know just just keep that in mind so if I if you see that I've certainly taken up another line of work. You'll know what Mike Everybody appreciates the dedication that you know and and all the effort that has gotten countless. I mean we we've been talking for over ten years on this and thought that you know a a great opportunity it was was at hand and and it it's gotta be just so disheartening and frustrating and I understand everybody understands so well. I'll say this do they still have to have a contract with the horsemen and that contract is going to be very difficult to get to this year when I wanted to negotiation. What what does that could take place it had it? Has We have to have one in nine contract with Arlington Park Ninety days before the begins in May okay so they'll be more to come. It's it's I there were soap. Operas invoked invoked yesterday and this is this. This is one that you know. It's a cliffhanger every every single every single time we talk. It's a cliffhanger Mike Hang in there. I appreciate it yeah. Well listen we appreciate you. We appreciate your racing fans and more than anything we love and care for this industry and we're going to fight if we have to fix bayonets and fight to our last bullet. WE'RE GONNA be here to do it out may okay. I'll do it from the outside of this place. They're not they're. They don't they don't stand a chance on that front. They're not nobody's nobody's pushing you out Mike Campbell. Thank you all right guys. Thanks a lot I appreciate racing fans. Keep us in your thoughts and prayers. We're going to need it.
