“We all know and love Mr. Baker as the former owner of Corazón, the education director at The Candyman’s Rock School and a member of cover acts Love Gun and Moby Dick. But for those of us who have actually taken the time to watch what this dude does with a guitar, he has a different name—hero. Oh, I’m sure he’s reading this right now and blushing, but I can recall a particularly excellent Gluey Brothers performance inside the Lamy train station during which a friend and I turned to each other in disbelief of Baker’s guitar prowess. It was one of those moments where you realize that while you thought you were producing great guitar stuff, there was some dude out there effortlessly making you seem foolish. Now then, when’s the next Deus Crepitus show!?”
“Where will you be when local cover band Moby Dick unleashes its bazonkers renditions of Led Zeppelin songs upon our fair city? Will you be missing the magic, or will you be front and center absorbing every last leather-pants-wearin’, falsetto-shriekin’, earth-shatterin’ and rockin’/rollin’ note? Not content to focus on any one specific era of Zeppelin’s timeline, Mikey Baker, Andy Primm, Peter Williams and Micah Chappell (did somebody say supergroup?) shred through the forefathers of heavy metal’s songs like they’re on a face-melting mission from God. “This is going to be all Dick all night,” Baker tells SFR. “It’s our last show of the summer, so we’re going to go all out with this one.” Sold.”
