First off though, the credits. Rolling Stone recently did an interview with him. I found it highly entertaining and enlightening. Makes me want to move to LA (Lower Alabama) and hang with him! Check it out!

Rock knows his fan base: “45-50-year-old girls wearing extra-large T-shirts — they’re my bread and butter.”

John Mellencamp’s life in 15 songs

john_cougar_1282144301I really like this. Anytime an Artist will take time out of their life and give us “common” people a little insight on the songs and the way they came about I find highly interesting and soak it up like a sponge!

It reminds me of a campfire setting and everyone listening to the older wiser man telling the stories for some reason. Anyway, I didn’t write the article for the Rolling Stone so I can’t copy it all here but I encourage you to follow the link and read it. You really can’t beat a guy like John. He is open and honest and gives us small glimpses on how “brass” the record industry can be. He didn’t cover my favorite one though “I ain’t even done with the night”..:(

Here are a few  quotes from the article to wet your whistle though 🙂 Chuck

 

 

On “Jack & Diane”

It was 1980, and I was down in Miami again, making a record. We had spent $3oo,ooo, and I had three songs done. The record company was not happy. Finally the president of the company came down and was like, “You’re spending money like crazy!” He went nuts. The three songs were “Jack & Diane,” “Hurts So Good” and “Hand to Hold On To.” He hated them. Hated them! He said, “We expect you to become the next Neil Diamond.
What is this shit?”

On “I Need a Lover”

By the time of “I Need a Lover,” I had three albums out. They sold nothing. We were recording in Miami at the same time that the Eagles were finishing up Hotel California. I would walk by and hear “Life in the Fast Lane,” go back into my session and hear, ‘I need a lover that won’t…” I’d be like, ‘Oh, fuck. I don’t know what I’m doing here.”

JM

And “Peaceful World” (This quote speaks volumes of John’s integrity and what he believes in. I underlined his convictions and applaud him for it! :Editor KA)

 

I signed to Columbia at this point against my better judgment. On “Peaceful World,” I brought in India.Arie to sing on it. I won’t mention any names, but when this song was delivered to Columbia, one of the executives said, “Why does Mellencamp always have a fuckin’ nigger singing with him?” My manager came back and told me that, and I was like, “Get me of this fucking label. I don’t give a shit. Get me off Columbia right now.”

Robert Plant hints he’d be open to a Led Zeppelin reunion

Led Zeppelin in 1973.

After their tantalizing one-off gig in 2007, Robert Plant has hinted that he’s open to a Led Zeppelin reunion next year. Speaking to Australia’s version of 60 Minutes,” the singer deflected the notion that he’s the reason for Zeppelin’s dormancy.

“[Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones] are Capricorns. They don’t say a word. They’re quite contained in their own worlds and they leave it to me,” said Plant. “I’m not the bad guy . . . You need to see the Capricorns – I’ve got nothing to do in 2014.”

David Lee Roth wants Michael back!

David Lee Roth recently sat down with Rolling Stone magazine about the lack of communication coming from  the Van Halen camp and his opinion of one of the greatest tenor voices in Rock and Roll Michael Anthony!

 “What we have at our fingertips is arguably one of the greatest high tenor voices ever — that was in Michael Anthony,” Roth explains. “In our tiny little corner of the universe, that voice is as identifiable as the high voice in Earth, Wind & Fire, as identifiable as the high voice in the Beach Boys… so I would always look forward to that reunion.”

Nothing against Wolfie playing bass. He did a great job but putting this rock and roll machine back together with all its original running parts would be earth shatterin’!
