“Mary Jane’s Last Dance,” Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers (Mike Campbell)
Tom Petty often refers to guitarist Mike Campbell as his secret weapon.
Not only has Campbell co-written some of the band’s most enduring songs, like his hero (George Harrison), he’s consistently delivered guitar parts that are instantly recognizable and tuneful over more than 30 years as the Heartbreakers’ co-captain.
While his Telecaster guitar lines on “Refugee” are biting and warm, sitting perfectly in a perfect recording, his riffs and soloing on 1993's “Mary Jane’s Last Dance” convey the confidence of a player who knows exactly where he wants to take the song and the listener.
