Born In A Small Town: John Mellencamp, The Story
Omnibus Press, 2012/06/26 - 256 ページ
Featuring interviews with everyone from childhood friends to band members, producers and engineers, this is a portrait of the real man, who grew up in Indiana and still lives there today – a passionate musician and a tireless campaigner for the lifestyle and values of the American family farmer.
This is the complete story of John Mellencamp, tracking his progress as he matured from youthful rocker with a made-up name to major star with a social conscience.
It is a journey typified by his 2007 release, Freedom's Road, an impassioned call to arms to rediscover America's founding traditions of freedom, justice, and never-say-die spirit.
An unlikely story but, in the end, an inspirational one that reveals a remarkable and unique fusion of heartland values and rock 'n' roll stardom.
