1  MELLENCAMP DISCUSSION / All About John / Share Your John Mellencamp Story! on: April 13, 2011, 09:52:37 am
For years now, I have wanted to write a book about John Mellencamp from the perspective of the people who love him best~~his FANS!! I began a project this year where I choose one song, one picture that I have taken and is relevant to the song or lyric, and write an article. I call it a 365 song, one picture for every day of the year. And with the exception of my trip to Austin City Limits (no internet connection), I have been successful and written 102 articles. It has been suggested that I try and publish this as the JM book I have always wanted to write. But! I CANNOT DO IT ALONE! The idea was for all of John's fans to share their stories, why they love his music, and how his music has impacted and changed their lives. So....I NEED YOUR STORIES!

Please click on the link below to read the article requesting your stories, or any other articles I've written to get an idea of what I've done. The truest reflection of any artist are his fans. And I don't need to tell anyone here how special, unique, and amazing John's fans are! Please share your stories and share with the rest of the world why we love John Mellencamp and his music!

Thank You!

No encore?!?!?!

Put it back in the set list, John! Please??

I really wanted to hear him sing She's So Tough. I'm glad we have it captured on video, but I want to hear it live!

5  MELLENCAMP DISCUSSION / All About John / John and Elaine on: December 31, 2010, 11:28:13 am
The latest news on John and Elaine appears to be that they are indeed splitting up after 20 years.

According to John's publicist..."John and Elaine Mellencamp are proud of their 20 years together and are very happy with their accomplishments both as parents and as a family," the couple's representative said in a statement issued Thursday. "They will continue to raise their two children in Indiana but have decided to call it a day as a couple."

news links:

I know that this news is devastating to us all. I hope that, as we have always done as fans of John Mellencamp, that we give this news, and John and Elaine, the respect and support they deserve. Our hopes have always been, and always will be, for John, Elaine, and their family, to be happy in their lives together. Whatever the circumstances and reasons, the Mellencamp's are redefining their lives and their happiness. I know I can speak for all of us when I say that I hope the process is one of grace, love, respect, forgiveness, and in the end, a new found happiness for the entire family. You have our support; our thoughts are with you.

Paula, you and I think so much alike. I just posted a thank you in another thread, and then I saw your post!

Thank you, Tony for ALL you do! I know it couldn't have been easy with all of the changes, but I think it went really well. I am VERY happy with my seats, and the process only caused a mild heart attack, rather than a full blown episode Wink

Seriously, I am happy that John is touring and that we have an opportunity to still have access to good seats, even without a Fan Club. I always say it can't ever get any better, but with John Mellencamp, it always does!

Like I said, we won't ever get back what we had with CCB in so many ways, but the best of what we had, we will ALWAYS have!

I never did see VIP seats for St Louis, at the $250 price. I feel lucky to have ended up with 10th row seats in the second section. And that was after 40 minutes of pulling up 3rd section Row Z!!

All in all, I am extremely happy with my seats for all the shows I will be attending! Even St Louis Wink

Thank you, Tony for all of your hard work. I know it couldn't have been easy, especially with all of the changes all at once, but as always, it seemed to work out in the end. Thank you for all that you do =D
9  MELLENCAMP DISCUSSION / Introduce Yourself / Re: Welcome and hello! on: August 10, 2010, 11:27:59 pm
Hello, I am Ottawa aka Brian and I am alive and well. I live in Indianapolis, IN. I have 5 kids and 3 grand kids. To all my fellow Club Cherry Bombers friends I am alive and doing as well as I can. I can't remember my last show but it has been a few years for sure. Much of my life is the same with the exception that my children are all older now. Jacob will be 18 next month and Rachael the youngest will be 17 in October. No more child tax credits :-( Well I may go to one of the Indy shows. Look forward to see those I know.

It is SO good to "hear" your voice!! Paula and I were talking about you a few weeks ago, wondering where you were and how you were doing. I am so glad to see you here on the new message board!

I hope life is treating you well, my friend. I am looking forward to catching up with you!

I wonder if John has any idea how much he is loved by us all?
11  MELLENCAMP DISCUSSION / Photos / Re: The Man... on: August 08, 2010, 11:08:42 pm

Paula, are ya tryin to kill me or what??

12  MELLENCAMP DISCUSSION / Photos / Re: The Man... on: August 08, 2010, 11:07:30 pm

Oh Lord, I love this picture! I will never, ever forget the moment he walked out on stage in that white shirt. My oh my, did he look good or what?

I have another picture I think you took Paula, of John giving the Mellencamp salute from the same show/tour. If I can figure out how to post a picture, I will post it!

14  MELLENCAMP.COM ANNOUNCEMENTS / Tech Support / Picture Upload? on: August 08, 2010, 11:28:30 am
How can we upload pictures to our profile? I keep getting an error message when I try to upload my own. I have even tried to resize the picture and upload. I cannot upload my own picture with url either, and the personalized picture does nothing (can't add anything, click anything).

I also tried to add a picture to my post yesterday, but could not do that either?

I know I am missing something obvious Wink

Hey everyone! It's so funny cuz we all already know each other! I hope we have some new "faces" join our new discussion board.

So, yep, it's Christine, aka jm_walktall. I've been a fan since I was 15 years old, from the moment I saw the Crumblin Down video for the first time, my life changed forever. I've been a "Crazy One" since 1991...been to too many shows to count, somewhere near 80. I have four JM tattoos: his autograph, a collection of song titles in the shape of a cross that John actually drew, a scarecrow, and the symbols from Life Death Love and Freedom.

If I could sum up why I love John in 25 words or less? His music is a philosophy by which I live my life every day, and I wouldn't be who or where I am today without his music. And, he is the one thing in my life that has never let me down. With JM's music, and with the friends I've met over the years because of JM, I am never alone, and I have some of the best friends anyone could ever want and need.

Okay, so I can't count, but if I don't stop there, I'll go on for days...

Welcome back to all of us!
