A bunch of us our heading down next week to SXSW in Austin where we know we’ll be taking in some stellar acts, but there’s still some regret going around the office since it means missing Michael Landau’s gig at the Compound Grill in Phoenix on March 16.
If you don’t know Landau, I’m told you should.
“He is the guitar player’s player, worshiped not only for his playing but also for his tone,” says one co-worker, who also confessed to scouring the internet to find out what guitars, amps, pickups and pedals Landau uses to arrive at aforementioned tone.
For the record, his current rig includes an array of Fender guitars and our Hot Rod Deville amps.
So if you are in the Phoenix area on March 16, head to the Compound Grill and check him out. He’ll be joined by Andy Hess on bass and Gary Novak on drums.
