Classic rock fans of all ages have grown up with John Mellencamp's "Jack & Diane," Tommy and Gina from Bon Jovi's "Livin' on a Prayer" and Billy Joe and Bobby Sue from the Steve Miller Band's "Take the Money and Run."
He's known for being surly when he has to be, but John Mellencamp can also be a pretty thoughtful and reflective guy -- as he is during a new profanity-laced interview that finds him laughing, "I'm the luckiest guy you will ever talk to."
Now that his musical, 'Ghost Brothers of Darkland County,' is behind him, John Mellencamp is ready to get back to rocking. In a new interview, the songwriter says he's written a massive amount of songs since 2010's 'No Better Than This.'
If you've seen any of John Mellencamp's recent round of talk-show interviews for his new musical collaboration with writer Stephen King, 'Ghost Brothers of Darkland County,' you probably noticed the rocker was sporting a black eye. In fact, it was kinda hard to miss.
