"I Knew You When" is the title of Bob Seger's new album.  It sounds absolutely fantastic!  There is so much great music on this new album.  If you love good solid rock, have a listen to it.  I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

Hey MNorris149,

Check out YouTube for the concert in Indianapolis 12.11.87 where he sings "Check it Out" and you see JM doing splits there.  I know that's not the back flips you mention; but still a phenomenal performance of the song and display of his athletic ability back in the day!

Hi everyone, Mike is working with Reverb to sell some of his totally cool equipment from over the years.  Check it out at 

Today, reverb launched the Official Mike Wanchic Reverb Shop, packed with guitars, amps, mics, and more that Wanchic used on countless records and tours during the last four decades. Like his classic rock pedigree might suggest, the shop is full of tasteful vintage gems.

Most of the gear youíll find in the shop was kept by Wanchic in his recently closed Echo Park Studios, where Ben Folds, Howie Day, and other artists have recorded. Outside of his guitar playing with Mellencamp, Wanchic is an accomplished producer and engineer. He told us that no matter how important to him this gear is, his real motivation in selling is to make sure that every piece that he no longer has time to play finds a new home with a loving owner.

An example would be the 1974 Gibson Les Paul Standard he has owned for 43 years. According to Wanchic, the guitar appeared on 1980ís Nothin' Matters and What If It Did, 1982ís American Fool, the associated world tours, and more. "It's a sentimental one," he said.

This evening I was trying to record a cassette tape of John Mellencamp's more classic songs, such as his hit songs from 1978-88...I finished it off with "Man With No Expression" and smiled inside thin king about life...because I do relate to the "lack of emotion"...if this is actually believable, I have not cried since probably the midnineties...
but I laughed for about an hour last month. I'm very very
and confidential to Aerosmith fans...I do
"...take out the trash...". And frankly, as a person involved in the throes of the system, that's your answer. So.
But there is a redeeming thing...
I teach a warmup exercise class Monday through Friday in the mornings as I have mentioned prior and tonight as I recorded songs from the more classic C.D.s and ended with "Cherry Bomb", I felt like a societal success at last! Now I am using poor old Mellencamp i
n a positive way! The cherry on the
...The only problem is..."why was John Mellencamp laughing on the editted version of "whenever we wanted to"
the middle of "Get a Leg Up"? Did I do something wrong?
My avenues of expression can sometimes be lonely for me and I do appreciate replies.
But I hope to have this letter posted.  As in "The Authority Song"...."I fight authority, authority, always win..."
I have learned to respect the Community and hopefully in time, the other sites I post on will be respected as well, important, because I have a special message...probably the
best thing of all! I have a picture of j-man and his old flame "setting each other on fire" so long ago on ____ the full album "whenever we wanted to"... And even a little part of this amazing musician's real life, even one musical line, just wouldn't do him justice...because I do think he's worth "a million years...before he feels like this..."with a real friend or l.u.v...his own words cover this on "cutting heads" 2001...and what a tragedy...a "little peep" as I sit with my friend eating b.l.t.s...yass
it's all relative. we don't hafta do if we don't wanna do. So we try to " it up..."...especially if we're over 21. It will shine when we're all adult.
I have an artists site on TUMBLR..."flagbarer" hooray for tomorrow and take care.

I'm closing here, guys.

 I think the October date on Wikipedia is correct. I definitely had it before November 1983, because I got it for my Birthday that year, which is in October.

I have a lot of those similar stories..Especially with Scarecrow and Lonesome Jubilee. Back before the days of internet to keep up with such things. As I type this, they did it again with UH-uh. Having it released 34 years ago today....It was released in October, not November.

We discussed this with the label. The best we could find in our records was a November release, even though Wikipedia says October, our notes, and articles that we could find, reference today's date as the release, so the label went with what they had.

Does any one have anything concrete about the October release date?

Not to me either. I'm just like you; those dates are attached to my life. I knew right away that the date for Lonesome Jubliee was off because I remember that it came out before I went in the Air Force and that it kept being delayed. I believe it was supposed to be released early August (maybe late July) 1987. I kept going to the record store to pick it up (I know I could have called but...) and every week it wasn't in yet. It got to the point that I would walk in the door and the store employees would stop what they were doing and yell "It's not in yet!". They were some happy people when it finally arrived! I was too.

Lonesome Jubilee was released before I went into basic training on Sept 20, 1987. I had my walkman and all my John Mellencamp cassettes with me but all of those items were locked in a closet the day you check in. Going that long without listening to John was terrible!
