1  MELLENCAMP DISCUSSION / Introduce Yourself / Re: Welcome and hello! on: October 27, 2010, 05:24:24 pm
Hey everyone!  I'm Steve...born and raised in southwest Wisconsin.  Now living in Colorado Springs.  Been a fan since '82 when I was in High School.

John's music has been with me through the good and bad over the past 30 years!  His music was there when I was dealing with my twin sister being in a coma.  When I quit college and bought an old beat up Buick and drove to Boston with $400 in my pocket on a whim.  His music was there when my girlfriend broke up with me.  I listened to him after I joined the Air Force and felt so lonely.  His music was there when I married and had two beautiful girls a few years later.  Song after song spoke to me when deployed many times.  Yes, even through the best of times, there were perfect songs to play.  But I especially remember the lowest times in my life when I needed John's music.  I played his music over and over again when my wife of 20 years left me and our girls a few years ago.  The pain was more than I can describe, but John's music spoke to me.  His music was there for me when I lost my brother to cancer just after my wife left me.  (he was only 44) 

Yeah, it was tough, but that is life.  You suck it up and tough it out.  Minutes turn to memories...real fast!  I guess you could say, the bed was made, but there were no sheets on. 

Today, I celebrate with John's music.  I raised my girls on my own for awhile and am now happily remarried.  Life couldn't be any better.  My girls (both 4.0 students) and my wife love Mellencamp as well.  I must admit it's pretty cool to hear my daughters jamming to classic Mellencamp 80s hits before a day of high school, just as I did.  You can't say that about many artists...he is truly an awesome musician.  My wife, my beautiful wife...well, she is a music teacher and she has to suffer by listening to me "try" to sing John's songs...I can't carry a tune in a bucket, but she loves me anyway.  I'm a blessed man.  Let's just say, since I met my wife, she has a new appreciation for John's music.  LOL

My wife and I are headed to the Denver concert in April and we're already way too excited!   Grin

Thanks for being there with me John...what a ride it's been thusfar!

Ok...after a little research, I hear Prime Bar is the place to be.  Looks like it's only a couple of blocks away from The Buell Theatre.  Great happy hour and great food.

Open to other suggestions as well.

If we get a big enough group, I can call and see what they can do for a group of crazed Mellencamp fans.   Grin


A little more info on Prime Bar:

Thanks for doing a great job Tony.  Followed your instructions and couldn't be happier.

Will have to do a little research to see of a good place we all can meet up before the concert.  Let me know if you know of anyplace close.

headed to denver to see jm- been to the buell once, to see mark knopfler, but don't remember set up- how far to the sides are seats 19 & 20? hopefully not too scary.....

Here's a better seating chart:

It looks like you're not too far off at all, depending what row you're in.
