Hello John & Staff,

I wonder and forward a humble suggestion as I've had time to reflect on the SCAH tour where I attended in Illinois.  I know your SCAH tour was set up to appease the fans for the good ole favorites and set up attention for a few of the songs off the new album.  John if you tour even one more time, how would it be if the band and you play/perform some songs we don't know and some songs we do, only let the theme of the tour revolve around what we love about John Mellencamp and as the people are coming through the gates, use technology to tabulate the songs people miss hearing and would love to hear again live that are untypical of those played over the years or at FarmAid.  Let that be the hook that brings people to the last tour, "Yours and Mine" Tour?   Wink

Only God knows if it would be but no one is getting younger; and even though John, your band and YOU look as hot as ever, how many more tours are you really wanting to do or will do, 0?  Then how many tours would people still fill venues to see you in?  You have SO MANY albums of material that people don't typically hear unless going to their own collection or possibly YouTube, etc.  There are a s_ton of songs and every concert would be different; but your band and you did that for Live by Request in 2004 and calls never stopped but only a few got through.

It would be so awesomely wonderful to see something like that show you performed for Bloomington in 2004 performed across the country! Roll Eyes  Maybe a member or two of the old bands could even return to perform as a reunion performance even and if that were in Indiana, well I could get to that, being a fellow Hoosier!  What i would pay to see that live!

GOD bless you John, you are so loved!

Hey John & Staff,

You were awesome on Morning Joe and thank you John for telling it like has been, is now and probably always will be! 

I wonder if this year's Sad Clowns and Hillbillies tour told you anything about how loved you really are to all of the average, middle-class, uncounted, no true voice and forgotten by Uncle Sam, folk!

"You see through everything and nothin' seems worthwhile
And hypocrite used to be such a big word to you
And it don't seem to mean anything to you now
Just try to live each and every precious moment
Don't be discouraged by the future forget the past
That's old advise but it'll be good to you..

Between a laugh and a tear
And that's as good as it can get for us
And there ain't no reason to stop tryin'"

A double album, a Ghost Brothers US tour with a stop near me, co-starring in and/or directing a movie with Meg Ryan.

One can hope. Smiley

 John doesn't stay idle for long- Now that the SCAH tour is over, what do people think is next for John? I am sure he will take a little break, but do you think he will launch another tour for Sad Clowns in the spring? Maybe Theatres again for this leg? Or perhaps he will begin working on another record.

Ah yes, I seem to be missing a few...thank you for the info.

I have some searching to do.

At the risk of repeating myself, oh for a rarities-focused box set.

I'm in the process of attempting to amass all of JM's non-album tracks on CD, despite having been a fan since early 1989 (when i Was 13 years old).

I know the 2005 remasters muddy the waters somewhat, as some of these ended up as bonus tracks on those discs.

So I have:

Pink Houses  (acoustic)
Pretty Ballerina
Small-town  (acoustic)
Never Too Old
Shama Lama Ding Dong
Blues from the Front Porch
Check it Out Live
Rave On (Cocktail Soundtrack)
Cold Sweat
I saw Mommy kissin' Santa Claus
Do Re Mi
Seventh Son
Jackie Brown (acoustic)
Pop Singer (extended) - this is kickass btw
Like a Rolling Stone from LJ tour
The two Dylan 30th anniversary show songs
Love and Happiness remixes
The Now More than Ever Redbeard sessions live rehearsals songs plus two radio songs with Mike W and Kenny A
Jailhouse Rock from Honeymoon in Vegas ost
Dance naked live take
Dance naked remix
Brothers live
Check it Out from '94 show
Baby Won't You Please Don't Go
Crumblin' Down live '96? (From.Just Another Day cd maxi single)
Gambling Bar Room Blues
4 extra songs on Freedom's Road bonus edition
Two songs on Cuttin Heads extra disc special edition

Am I missing anything?

Any info appreciated.

We "follow the wind" with every "runaway" song that Tom Petty sings. I say this in present tenses because I teach a warmup aerobics class and I use several of his songs in my dances. And everytime he "stands his ground while they turn her around", I honor my own dignity as a " blues jean queen"
& I take another deep breath and I go teach my dance class. Tom Petty was one of the best musicians I've heard, and I have mentioned my compliments before in this club. But you hit on this stuff that they "flush away" and it leaves you wondering (you can't help it) if as a fan, there is something you could have done. I know. It sounds grandiose. But you just wanna "punch a pillow"(argh!!!)... Huh
Just endless his music..."I Won't Back Down", "Into the Great Wide Open", that one where "...Me and Del were singing "Little runaway", "Last Dance for Maryjane", "Here Comes My Girl", "Free Falling", ...AWHILE it said...and "I'm Learning to Fly" and so. Maybe insulting for hardtime rock musicians and 💘 s...
But still a compliment on his incredible talents.
Too soon to see another rockstar lose his life.
But that seems to be the picture lately. That's why I'm shredding mine at work. Too late, etc. ...
My credo in this life is "Free Falling" because I do feel that somewhere in time another artist with more coping saavy could have left this crazy world FOR AWHILE, if at all, to help me live a better way. But you can't demand a person's time, of course.
May his spirit rest in peace and reunite with those he l.u.v.v.e.d.
Runnin' Down a Dream...okay.
"When I got wind..." shut up!!!" Be listenin'. "My country 'this of thy sweet land of Liberty, of thee I sing..."
Yeah...later
