Lately, I've been getting into some lyrics of other bands than
John Mellencamp's, and although I've been trying to share my
other favorites, I haven't been able to post my articles.
However, in that if I could I would be writing for a magazine like
The Rolling Stone or Vanity Fair, I decided to run one of my favorite
songs by you guys, a Rolling Stone's song from the 1980's called
"Let Me Go". I don't know all the lyrics, but I would like to regroup my
thoughts here and share a few of the words with people...
Let Me Go
You're gonna get it straight from the shoulder,
Can't you see the party's over?
Hey, let me go
I tried giving you the velvet gloves,
I tried giving you the knockout punch,
Hey, let me go.
I find it hard, hard to be cruel, with a smile,
But you'll never find that perfect love that you think about,
That you're dreaming of...
Maybe I'll become a playboy,
Hang around at the gay bars,
On the west side of town...
So you think I'm giving you the brushoff,
I'm just telling you to " Shut up"...
Hey, let me go!
The chair is on the table, baby!
Out the door!
I luv the direct honesty and I get the point...Its at least better
than "Under My Thumb"!
I think I'd hit the road, though.
Hope I can post this letter, because, honestly, if it isn't printed,
I'm about to leave the Club.

I know John's album with Carlene "Clowns And Hillbillies" is due in 2017 but is it planned to release the Ithaca soundtrack as a release?

     "Just filmed Rock 'n' roll road trip with John Mellencamp. One of my favorite interviews in my life. John is the real deal. It was really great, him and I hit it off even better than I expected.
I've always been a fan, I knew him and I could connect on some soulful level and we did. We played a song which is an old blues folksong called "Delia". No rehearsal or anything so it was raw, rough, and ready, but very cool song.

He's a fantastic artist/painter - he had a collection of work that I went through every piece and chose one called "Puppet". He insisted on giving it to me, but I am writing a check to Farm Aid or some other charity of his choice for the painting. It will be put up on display in my restaurants one month at a time before it goes in my home.

All I can say is John is the real deal, he's an uncompromising artist and has been for a long time and has good reason, heart, and soul behind it. I truly believe and hope we will be friends for a long time after today. I never got close to him before only met a couple times once at Farm Aid in '85 which we had a good laugh about my live shout out to 70,000+ in attendance "here's a song for all you tractor pullin motherfuckers". Ouch. It was on Live TV, live radio all over the country right before I played 55.

Hopefully John will invite me be back to Farm Aid next year and let me redeem myself. He's a good man. Very special show for sure." - Sammy

I have to post something here because it's just so unbelievable. It's not completely John Mellencamp related but I feel it's important to tell.
So I am not rich. I do not grow money on trees in my backyard. That being said, when they announced the John Mellencamp tour for this October, I was conflicted. I didn't know whether I was going to have enough money to see him.
Then in June I learned that another artist I wanted to see, Elton John, was also touring near me in September. He is retiring, so I knew this would be my last chance to see him. I was once again lost. I just didn't know what to do- clearly I couldn't afford one concert- let alone two. The prices of "classic rock" concerts have been on the rise so much lately.
So I was destined to be doomed- or so I THOUGHT. Earlier in July for my birthday, friends and family gave me a total of $220- something I was NOT expecting!! So then I knew I was at least going to the John Mellencamp concert. That was all I could ask for. I was so happy that people had pitched in and gave me all that money. It meant a lot to me.
But then it gets BETTER. Today, I was graciously given $300 freakin' dollars from practical strangers... just so I could go to this Elton John concert. I mean you GOT to be kidding me!? Right? The amounts of happiness in my heart right now is EXPLODING. So now I have enough to go to BOTH these concerts. And now they're marked in my calendar- these are such big days!
This is just something that could only happen with the help of other generous, kind people. I just want to point out to you guys that miracles CAN happen, and to NEVER lose your hope. If there's a concert, or a person you want to meet, or a goal... whatever that may be, NEVER give up. With the right community and people around you, you CAN accomplish anything. And this is proof.
So I think the best song to describe my mood right now would be "Thank You"!!!

I play piano, and I know practically every John Mellencamp, Bob Seger, Elton John, Little Richard, and Jerry Lee Lewis song out there, but for the life of me I can't read a damn single note lol. So I guess I'm useless lmao.

I'm sure you'll get an autograph!! Cheesy 'Cause I sent him a letter last year in the beginning of July, and I got a response/autograph just two months later at the end of August! I never felt so exited getting mail in my life. (He may respond later, I think I just got lucky with him responding so quickly.)
And proof, you can see it here:

Lol yup, I didn't meet him the last time like I wanted, but I came close. I saw him by his tour bus and I was like a good 10 feet away from him. I shouted his name, even though I knew he didn't notice lmao... but it was hell of a lot of fun anyways. The security told us we had to go away, which is no problem. He probably wants to just relax and just go to bed after those shows (hell I know I wanted to haha) I did meet Miriam though! And I got quite a few pictures with her! She was super nice- and I mean SUPER nice. She acted like she was stunned to meet me (she saw me before because I was in the front row) she wouldn't stop complimenting me. I felt honored!
So I'm trying to see if I can catch him again after a show in Toledo this time. I might happen- I think the reason why he "ignored" his fans after the last show was because it was at a casino. (Casino shows are terrible, and I speak from experience... gah) so this next show I'm going to is at a theater and it will be different. I'm so excited!

Hello! I sent an item requesting respectfully for John to consider signing on February 17, 2016. I followed all of the rules, sending it using certified mail, along with a certified stamped envelope for return to me. I haven't received anything as yet. This is July 2, 2016, and I realize that John is very busy, but I wandered if you think that I still have a chance of receiving it back. I'd appreciate it if you can give me some input into this matter. Thank you so much!

Very likely you will still get a reply. Very common for a 6 to 9 month turn around time.
