GHOST BROTHERS OF DARKLAND COUNTY 2014 NORTH AMERICAN TOUR STARTS NEXT WEEK!
Don't miss Ghost Brothers of Darkland County as it tours across North American beginning next weekend!

The southern Gothic supernatural musical of fraternal love, lust, jealousy and revenge was written by best-selling author Stephen King, with music by Rock and Roll Hall of Famer John Mellencamp, and musical direction by Grammy Award-winning Producer T Bone Burnett.

The musical features original songs written by John for the show. John likes to describe it as a play with music and the show is a must see for a Mellencamp fan. Please note that John is not on stage or on the tour, however members of John's band are onstage playing the music live.

The new North American tour features Actor/Writer/Producer Billy Burke (The Twilight Saga) and Actress/Writer/Singer Gina Gershon (Killer Joe, House of Versace, Boeing, Boeing) in the lead roles.

Tickets are AVAILABLE NOW! Make sure to get yours today for this CAN'T MISS experience!

it is true, even in my neck the woods, its the same thing over and over.  we rural folk want to hear the oldies but goodies like

country joe & the fish
elvin bishop
walter eagan
3 dog nite
poco harem
cat stevens
the band
38 special
outlaws
bad company
bread
jefferson starship
allman brothers
moody blues


the list can go on. it aint like it used to be back in my day. the thing to do was to go to someones house and listen to the vinyls. and the stereo system was always the thing. mine was the pioneer sx 350 with 12" wolfers.  and when these songs came out when the artists first wrote them, the radio station we had back then, played them. now that was playing some music  Grin

Yeah, the classic rock stations really don't consider new music from an established artist.  Unless it's someone like Paul McCartney or Robert Plant.  Even then, the new music doesn't receive a whole lot of air play.  I much prefer the European classic rock stations.  They are far more open to playing a very good mix of classics and new music.

I did think it was someone other than John.  Nonetheless, a great song.  The entire album is so fantastic!  It really can't get "no better than this".  What else does John have in store for us in the years to come?  I certain that Plain Spoken is just the beginning of more great music to come from Mr. Mellencamp.

I thought it was released worldwide on Oct. 14th, 2014.  That's quite surprising. I just checked and Ride Out is available through Amazon, Germany.  I'm sure you can download it from the site or order from your local record store.  Enjoy!

It's one of John's best songs ever, not just in the lyrics and the raw honest emotion in John's voice, the instrumentation on this track is just awesome.

Is John the one playing the harmonica solos?

No the harmonica is Troye on Plain Spoken.

Perfect song except for the sha-la-la-la part.  I cringe every time.


If i'm not mistaken it lasts all of five seconds, and is never repeated again, not exactly Hey Jude. Smiley
