1  MELLENCAMP.COM ANNOUNCEMENTS / Ask Mellencamp.com / need to contact John or his management. on: July 28, 2015, 06:40:16 pm
Hi, I am the publicist for Joshua Hider. He wrote a authorized biography about Larry Crane and the breakup. We are ready to publish but are concerned that there may be some things that are inaccurate. He has only had Larry's point of view on things, and sometimes peoples recollections aren't always accurate. Now, we would like to know if John Mellencamp would like to weigh in with his side of the story or any opinions. I need a email or phone number to contact, please.

Thanks!
Alana

Larry Crane did not write any songs, I checked all my records and cd's. He was credited for playing acoustic guitar, electric guitar, mandolin and back ground vocals. He was very good too. I think Larry may regret leaving John and the band, not really sure how he left it. Maybe John should check it out.

If you dont consider music to be part of the song then he never wrote any. The fact is John only gave Larry credit for two songs. He wrote the intro to "I need a Lover" just to name one of many. Larry had a hand in writing all of the guitar work on those albums, and many other parts. If you are interested in knowing how it all happened I am writing Larry's biography, and it should be available soon. Also, he absolutely does not regret leaving.

I was inspired to write a book about Larry Crane after researching the 'heartland sound'. I had long been a fan of JM. At least until Larry left and the sound changed. I wanted to know why, and finding out why,I feel like other people would like to know too. I have been working with Larry Crane for a month or two now, and am almost finished with the book. It covers his whole career up to now. I think any fan of Mellencamp or Larry Crane as a soloist will find it quite interesting. Keep tuned, or go to LarryCrane.com for updates.

The article that was printed in the Indy star is completely false. In fact Larry Crane wrote a rebuttal to the star after that came out but they never printed it. That was not at all what happened during the break up. I was so intrigued by the story that I decided to write Larry Cranes life story. I have his full cooperation, and hopefully the book will be on shelves soon. If you are interested in learning more about all that went on in JM band during the Larry Crane years including the breakup, then stay tuned.
