Never got the best response from my family when I was a teenager and said I was crazy about Mellencamp, guess it's that raspy voice and rebel soul. WHEN I'm sad I listen to a Mellencamp son and let out all the bad and feel good again.  Still wish he would settle down with Ms. Brinkley.....LOL🙈🙉🙊

I had my best friend Dawn and I would carry a boom box around Scotia New York. We were his biggest fans we sang LITTLE ditty about Dawn and Eileen two American kids doing the best that we can. SHE IS GONE AT after 43 years .our last message on line was us remembering how we sang that little ditty and we felt like we could face our crazy lives of alcoholic parents and disfunctional family's. AT 46 I embarrased  my 16 year old son singing all the oldies. He even knows China Girl . I WON'T BREAK YOU CHINA GIRL IF YOU TAKE ME INTO YOUR ARMS ,IT'S BEEN MY GOOD FORTUNE TO FIND YOU CHINA GIRL.  PAPER AND FIRE HAS BEEN ANOTHER FAVORITE.  MELLENCAMP was the first concert I Ever went to, Mom took me and my brother. Mom passed last year too. AM I SILLY TO THINK I need to see him in North Carolina where we are now one more time for Mom and Dawn. GOD I sound crazy. I HAVE TO SAY I DON'T SEE HIM TOUR  IN NC A LOT. 🤔 I really like the song that don't get a lot of play time.

Great performance June 13th! I don't know how the time flew by so fast but it did, and by the time JM and crew left the stage, many hits and some new material had been enjoyed by the crowd in attendance, who nearly filled the venue to capacity. The sound coming from the performance was spot on and JM's vocals in each and every song performed was a great pleasure to hear. If you have not already done so, get your tickets for this fun, well polished performance. Bring along friends to enjoy JM and crew on this Sad Clowns & Hillbillies Summer Tour.  Don't miss it!

Just wanting to know - will any more dates announced for the US tour?
Secondly - any chance there will an announcement for an Australian tour - this CD / album is extraordinary and it would be great to witness John performing some of the od and new songs live.
Thanks Syl

I can't wait to hear Grandview in St. Augustine Florida in two weeks. I'm probably one of very few people who has been waiting for this song to be released for 20 years. When I got the new CD and saw it on the songs list my jaw dropped, since I was losing hope that it would ever surface.

The story- A friend of mine knew I was a huge Mellencamp fan and handed me an unlabeled cassette tape one day with five songs on it and told me to listen. On it was- When Jesus Left Birmingham, The Breakout, Grandview, Sweet Evening Breeze & Human Wheels. All of them have been released except Grandview and I have been sort of protecting it and only letting a few of my friends listen to it through the years. My favorite song all along was the quirky little trailer park song, Grandview. It is of course really raw, but a great version that I actually like better than the album, but of course I am used to it. The Breakout is actually a very different version as well from the album version. I would love to share it, now that is has been released, but I'm not sure I can since it is a bootleg and don't want a record company lawyer calling me! So I guess if a moderator reads this let me know if I can share, or if Mr. Mellencamp wants to hear it I will meet him at the concert and play it for him. LOL!

I hope it is in the set list when I go in two weeks!!!
