even the losers

WHEN WE GOT the news that Mike Campbell was delivering the debut album from his group, the Dirty Knobs, we jumped at the opportunity to sit down with the guitarist for a deep discussion about the new band and his previous work in Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and Fleetwood Mac. Mike was happy to oblige, and he has graced this issue with two fun and rewarding interviews on those subjects. There are many highlights to these stories, but one of my favorites that Mike relates has to do with when he first met Tom and his bandmates in Mudcrutch, the band that preceded Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Mike tells contributing writer Joe Bosso how he felt like a loser when Tom’s bandmates first laid eyes on him, with his…

inside the guitar gig of the year

IT WAS A guitar concert to outshine all others. On February 25, David Gilmour, Kirk Hammett, Pete Townshend and Billy Gibbons gathered with other musicians at the London Palladium to perform a tribute to Fleetwood Mac founder Peter Green. Arranged by drummer Mick Fleetwood, the show raised funds for the Teenage Cancer Trust. The other big names onstage included former Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman, Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher, Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler, and venerable British bluesman John Mayall, whose Bluesbreakers group formed the nesting ground from which Fleetwood and bassist John McVie emerged with Green in 1967 to form Fleetwood Mac, along with guitarist Jeremy Spencer. Happily, Spencer was on hand for the show, as was Fleetwood Mac keyboardist, singer and songwriter Christine McVie. Mick Fleetwood’s core band for the…

pedigreed mutt

THROUGH MORE THAN two decades, Nik Huber has been recognized for his marriage of precision and artistry, as well as for the fine woods and top-shelf components crafted into his original, yet familiar designs. At this year’s winter NAMM show, the German luthier debuted “Prototype #2,” which was hustled along to Guitar Player afterward for an exclusive test drive. Officially dubbed Piet, the new model is named after Huber’s youngest son. It’s simultaneously something a little different for Nik Huber Guitars, yet redolent of the maker’s signature touches and the quality that results from them. Huber founded Nik Huber Guitars in Rodgau, Germany, in 1996, and quickly developed a reputation for the quality of his wood stash, and the exotic beauty of the alternative timbers he brought into the process, such…

eyes on the prize

“GUITAR IS KIND of a crazy story for me,” says Celisse Henderson, who nowadays performs and records simply as Celisse. “I’ve only been playing for about six years.” It’s what Celisse has done with the guitar in just six years that’s so impressive. In her short career on the fretboard, she has already played lead guitar for Lizzo on Saturday Night Live, toured with Melissa Etheridge, performed with Jon Batiste on NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert series and, this past January, shared the bill at Gibson’s all-star NAMM concert with such greats as Slash, Billy Gibbons, Jimmy Vivino, Elliot Easton, Lzzy Hale, Don Felder, Rick Nielsen, Richie Faulkner and Jared James Nichols. Then again, Celisse’s accomplishments seem less crazy when you consider she’s been performing almost since she could walk. “My mom was…
