Album Notes
The Fog of War is the result of 5 years of working with Steve Grisham. As a result of this it is an incredible 10 song set of ORIGINAL songs influenced by themes of Roots, Rock and Blues. The result is a nicely polished CD the likes of which you won't hear elsewhere....

Steve Grisham former member of The Outlaws and currently with Ghost Riders has recorded the entire CD.Everything from Vocals to Drums not to mention his unreal guitar work.

Harry Brenner helped kick off this project with his song Whydyadoit....Many Thanks Harry...and You got to have Swing!

Steve's band Ghost Riders recorded my song Shotgun Run for their own CD Fortune Teller. The song also appears on The Fog of War.

If you are a fan of Southern, Roots Rock and Blues you are gonna love this.

Ya got to have Swing!
I swear.I'm not just saying this. This is a great CD! I love Ya Got to Have Swing and Whydyadoit! (Baby, baby, baby, whydyadoit?!!) I can't get that tune out of my head. I'm not kidding when I say that those 2 are my favorites (and NOT just because you're on it - they are truly great songs!) Johnny and I went for a drive and I kept switching back and forth from cut 4 to 7 until finally Johnny said "We can play something else now.J Thanks so much for sharing. Ya Got to Have Swing reminds me of ZZ Topp. Anyways, thanks again, Babe!

“Shotgun Run” is a 3:46 masterpiece!

Reviewing Don Campbell’s “Shotgun Run” 1.24.02

First Impression:

Wow! This will be a pleasure to listen to!

I cannot find much information on Don Campbell. Don is apparently the founder of Mp3, which is a collaborative web site of unsigned musicians and bands that all appear to be of a high quality. Hailing from Atlanta, GA, Don describes his musical stylings as “Something between Bing Crosby and Frank Zappa.”

Don also collaborates with other musicians. Harry Brenner, who hails from San Diego, CA. has worked on several tunes with Don, even though they have yet to meet in person.

The song “Shotgun Run” also credits Steve Grisham as “performed by.”

“Shotgun Run” is a 3:46 masterpiece! I DARE you to listen to this song and find fault with its production, structure, lyrics, musicianship or hooks!

Don places this song under the Rock genre label, but I have not heard rock like this in a quite a few years. In my opinion this song should be in the Country category, but let me explain!

Rock music in the late 70’s was truly rock! Not what we call rock today, and I can say this because I am in the rock category of today myself. In the 70’s musicians were true musicians who deserved to get paid $300 an hour to find the right stool to sit on while recording. Look at the musicianship, the level of skill and intelligence in song writing from bands like the Doobie Brothers, the Eagles and the Little River Band. Extremely talented bands like these don’t exist anymore… or do they?

Don Campbell is living proof that musicians of this caliber are still alive, and creating intelligent songs with direction, hooks, and heart-felt emotion.

But John… Country?

Well, Country these days is honestly about 20 years behind the rock industry. A good deal of the country songs on the radio today are pop and metal crossovers. The clothing, stage shows and dark chord progressions remind me of earlier metal bands like Keel and Blue Oyster Cult, and go figure, Ron Keel went country and changed his name to Ronny Lee Keel.

“Shotgun Run,” to me, sounds like the quality rock of the 70’s!

It is chock full of tasteful note choices and correctly executed dynamics and it has an incredibly wonderful production!

The clean guitar is bright and vibrant. The dirty guitar is well mixed in the background to create the harsh intensity, but it does not take over the song. The bass tone is fantastic! Both the low end, and my favorite bass string noise are present here. This is a PRO production!

I have listened to this tune over 10 times now, and it only continues to grow on you. The chorus is gripping and easy to sing along too. The guitarist is on top of his game! Any readers out there who do not like guitar solos should listen to this one. There is direction, flash, and emotion!

“Shotgun Run” should be on the air TODAY! I don’t care what style of music you listen to, if you are a true musician, I know that you will appreciate the work and skill that went into creating this tune.

The music Don Campbell has created here causes me to rethink the talent of even the most interesting electronic rock music that tops the charts today.

Listen to this tune, I promise that you will get something out of it!

Bravo Don!


Awsome Don, I love it!
I have been meaning to get in here and let Don know that I think that this is an awsome CD! The music is crisp and rockin! I can feel the good vibes that were flowing on this production and I can only hope that it gets the attention that it deserves.
