From Fender:

World-renowned session ace Michael Landau has played on hundreds of albums since the early 1980s. He has also fronted several bands, including the Raging Honkies, Burning Water and, more recently, Renegade Creation with Robben Ford. With his own group, he continues to raise the bar in electric jazz, instrumental and rock guitar.
