1  MELLENCAMP.COM ANNOUNCEMENTS / Ask Mellencamp.com / Re: What's up with Rolling Stone magazine?? No "Sad clowns and hillbillies" review? on: June 26, 2017, 07:50:39 am
So glad to know I'm not alone in my thinking! I've said the same thing about both for years. It kills me that Bruce can do something John has done years before and then get praise for his "ground breaking" work. It may not be his fault but I can't listen to him because of that. Well, that's not entirely true, I cannot deal with his voice either!

sorry about that. That does stink. I live out in the boon docks and we can't get internet except for satellite and it's useless.

Yes! I'm also sure there's an interview where he said he was going to be a dancer in New York!

The original story is better. There was a contest on loaves of bread wrappers and his buddy worked for the company. He won the contest to get the money to record his demo and then he went to New York. I guess he could ask us if he doesn't remember something because we do!

Does anyone know where I can watch this?

Hello!
You should be able to watch it here:
http://www.cmt.com/shows/cmt-crossroads

I'm kinda disappointed that CMT has not shown it again. I think is really odd actually. It would be nice to see it again instead of the movie Brother in law for the 9 millionth time!

Rain on the Scarecrow. Especially the end where he is singing then it switches back to the recorded version.

I've been a fan of mellencamp since I was 5 living in Augusta Georgia my mom moved us to Seymour Indiana 24 years ago cause she thought he talked about Seymour so nicely I am a born Hoosier beech grove but john mellencamp is by far my favorite I love minutes to memories my favorite big daddy of them all 2nd but I couldn't list them really cause I could listen to any song any albums anytime
I find that my favorite song changes. I rotate the cd's in and out of my car. I've been stuck on Scarecrow lately. I love to turn up the volume on Rain on the Scarecrow so I can feel the drums in my chest. I am really looking forward to Sad Clowns and Hillbillies. I love Grandview!
Best,
Lisa

That's funny you are from Georgia cause that's where I 1st heard john I was 5 I'm 36 been living in Seymour 24 years now my mom thought he talked about it nice I lived in dalton Calhoun and Augusta just really can't remember where John started which town I know it was Georgia and I hope you enjoyed what I call my hometown now Seymour Indiana

I did! I'm hoping to go back and spend more than just a few hours bugging around! I live in Northeast Georgia. We are fairly close to South Carolina but not far from Athens, Georgia. Athens is a great music scene (REM, B-52's etc) and the home of The University of Georgia and the Bulldogs! I've been through Dalton a couple of times. My husband works for the Agricultural dept and Dalton is one of his areas so he knows it pretty well.

Hope you are able to see John this time!

Watch him doing I Need a Lover on American Bandstand. It's a hoot! Not sure if it's still on youtube. I can't remember if it was in the American Fool book or an article where he talks about having to lip sync on American Bandstand.

Hello!
Yes, they did wagon wheel and hold my hand. It was really good! I thought Darius did great on John's songs as well! The only song John seemed to have trouble with was Darius' new song "What if I told you". They did that one twice. I can't wait to see it Friday!

13  MELLENCAMP.COM ANNOUNCEMENTS / Ticket & Tour Questions / Atlanta show on: March 14, 2017, 09:15:22 am
Well, I tried. at 10:01 there were no up close seats left for 90.50 and the VIP seats were almost as far back as the first $90.50 seats. I had a bad feeling because it's Chastain. Looks like I will skip this one.

Glad I got to go to the Crossroads taping because it's looking like that will be my John Mellencamp fix for the year  Cry

Hi Sharon and Tony
I see the pre-sale date for Atlanta posted now but there is still no price for the front row or regular diamond packages. Any updates on those or is Chastain one of those places where we won't be able to get them?

Thanks!

It was awesome! I cannot wait to see it when it airs. Darius went first and here's what they sang together:
Alright, What if I told you, Hold my Hand and Wagon Wheel.
Then it was John's turn. Most of the people there were there for Darius; there was no doubt about that! It was funny though because John took his jacket off and the girl beside me, said "he's taking his jacket off; it's about to get serious". I looked at her and smiled and said "you have no idea!".
Here's the songs by John that they did together:
Grandview, Jack & Diane, Longest Days, Pink Houses and Cherry Bomb.
I cannot wait to see what they leave in and what they take out. I can't imagine them not having all the songs because John and Darius were really good together. Grandview was smoking! John sounded really good and I can't tell you how excited I am about the new CD!

Thanks again Tony and Sharon!
