Stories about the challenges recording “Refugee” are legendary, but you would never know it when seeing Tom and the band play the second single off Damn The Torpedoes.

 

It’s the song that whips the crowd into a frenzy at the end of the show, a sonic maelstrom led by Mike Campbell’s searing guitar solo that typically finds the Heartbreaker guitarist way off stage right playing to fans at the edge of the stage.

 

It’s the exclamation point on the Heartbreakers’ set every night.

Tom stood outside of his dressing room with Benmont, the bandmates hovering of a smartphone.

Every fan should get to stand behind Mike Campbell while he plays “I Should Have Known It.”
I found myself behind the Heartbreakers co-captain and lead guitarist’s amp line Friday night at Dallas’ American Airlines Center just as Mike tore into the blistering opening riff of the Mojo standout.

 

Mike is well-known as Tom’s songwriting and producing partner, but he’s also one of the great, great rock ‘n roll guitar players of all time, skilled on a multitude of instruments, creative in the sounds he gets and tasteful in always
