I remember seeing John Mellencamp many years ago in Baton rouge. At the time his albums Uh-huh and scarecrow were the biggest things going. What I remember most though is that Mellencamp puts on a hell of a good show, keeping things moving with a repertoire of recognizable songs.
Over the years Mellencamp has made his own way, releasing albums that reflect his own thoughts, kind of a voice of conscience for a country reeling from economic and social roblems. he makes no promises, puts forth little in the way of agenda. He just says what’s important to him and leaves it at our feet. It occurs to me that when we get John Mellencamp tickets we’re getting more than we bargained for.
