106  NON-JOHN DISCUSSION / Music You Like / James Brown on: April 03, 2011, 02:54:56 pm
recently bought a copy of James Brownīs live record "Live at the Apollo", a show from 1962.
well...the record sounds funny with the crowd screaming (dont know if they added these later in the studio or if it was real).
but James Brown was really Mr.Dynamite! so much power and soul in his performance.
a great record, and though I love the folk roots, I think itīs people like James Brown that influenced Mellencamp a lot more, his "Salute to 60īs Rock" tells it all.
so letīs donīt forget James Brown!

Uh-huh was an album by a young band, very quickly done and raw, but not even close to the creativity and strength of the past albums. but the style of the music doesnīt matter as long as the quality is there, John Mellencamp often surprised us and rarely repeated himself. a new rock album produced by a grown-up Little Bastard would be fantastic, Rodeo Clown made us hungry for this. I am sure he will do the right next thing!
108  MELLENCAMP DISCUSSION / Tour Talk / Re: Stage Background Question? on: March 18, 2011, 05:26:02 am
interesting interview, I hope the european shows will be the same style and quality. I never was that interested in the lighting of a show, always focussed on the music, but after listening to Steve Cohen I will concentrate on what he said, and hopefully he will bring his lights and creativity to europe!
109  MELLENCAMP.COM ANNOUNCEMENTS / Announcements & Updates / Re: 2011 European Tour Announced! on: March 17, 2011, 05:58:21 pm
have been waiting for this news for years! and now the dates are confirmed, I dont know what to say except thanks to everyone who was involved in this decision to tour europe! 3 shows in germany, one in the netherlands, hammersmith in london, even one swiss show...this upcoming summer will be special!
I hope the show will be the same as the american, with the new songs and not a greatest hits tour!
again thanks a lot for not forgetting us over here!

111  MELLENCAMP.COM ANNOUNCEMENTS / Announcements & Updates / Re: Web Exclusive: Watch John Perform His Favorite Blues Song on: February 03, 2011, 06:24:47 pm
Thanks a lot for this video!
this is a great version of a great song. last year I was lucky to find a vinyl copy of "The Legendary Library of Congress Session" by Blind Willie McTell. great songs and impressive field notes by John A. Lomax (who did the field-recordings with his son Alan):
" After guiding him to the car I told him I didnt know the way to the hotel. "Iīll show you," said totally Blind Willy. Between us and the hotel were six or eight right angled towns and two places where five or six streets crossed. Chatting all the while with me, Blind Willy called every turn, even mentioning the location of the stop lights. He gave the names of buildings as we passed them. Stored in his mind was an accurate detailed photograph of Atlanta."

McTellīs original version is a little faster, but John adds his typical flavour and sings much better. sad music is the best music!
112  MELLENCAMP DISCUSSION / All About John / Re: John and Elaine on: January 27, 2011, 04:01:15 pm
thanks for the tunes and the recipes!
i agree that itīs none of our business. itīs totally private and has got nothing to do with john mellencampīs music. as fans we are no way part of anybodyīs family, this is all too cheap.
i wonder where americaīs liberalism and sense of freedom has gone? a liberal artist like mellencamp deserves liberal fans. he has another new album out, a box set, is on an extensive tour, has been more creative in the past years than everyone....and the most important thing here seems to be who he is dating? you must all be very bored, i guess.

despite recession you are in a luxurious situation, because you CAN see him live in concert.
iīd pay anything to see him playing here in berlin, germany...and i think he is surely more worth than styx, stevie nicks or garth brooks.
come to europe, John, no one here is interested in your private life and no one will complain about ticket prices! we just want to enjoy your music!
114  MELLENCAMP DISCUSSION / All About John / Re: Current Top 5 ????? on: January 23, 2011, 05:17:17 pm

1. Young Without Lovers ("LET THE PEOPLE HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE DIFFERENT")
2. The West End
3. Rodeo Clown
4. Freedomīs Road ("must be under construction")
5. Rural Route
115  MELLENCAMP.COM ANNOUNCEMENTS / Ticket & Tour Questions / Re: Spring 2011 Pre-Sale Questions & Problems on: January 06, 2011, 03:01:39 pm
second and third tour leg...any news about a european leg of this tour?
if not, i would appreciate it a lot hearing about it before the us and canada tour is sold out or ended, then i would travel to the usa to catch a show. dont want to miss out on everything again.
Thanks!
(by the way all this discussion about Johnīs privacy is a shame here. I thought this site is about music and not whoīs dating whom.)
116  MELLENCAMP DISCUSSION / All About John / Re: The Grammy's are a joke on: December 02, 2010, 03:55:44 pm
who cares about the grammy awards? nothing to do with music, so itīs just not worth thinking about who gets nominated and who not.

what a performance of both John and Miriam! thanks for this video!!
119  MELLENCAMP DISCUSSION / All About John / Re: Mellencamp Admirs Sarah Palin on: November 08, 2010, 04:37:41 pm
I dont believe this. history has seen enough stupid people who knew how to push the right buttons, often ending in desaster.
