re: John Cougar - before the denim
Mellencamp is a smartass and held lipsyncjing performances in contempt. He and jis band did a stunt on American Bandstand that pissed off Dick Clark real good. Then a few weeks later did it on Solid Gold.

Isn’t this what introduced him to mainstream America?

don't know how good of a guy he is. I get the impression he doesn't suffer fools very well.

I've never met him, but knew someone who did. Said he seemed normal aside from some obscene words on his guitar.

Staying in Indiana will do that though. Hes said he will never leave here, where as most musicians from here tend to run off (see Axl Rose, Michael Jackson) so he's more like the average person from here I suspect. Abrasive personality but if you're around people from here enough it's normal.

This is my favorite of his too, from my favorite Mellencamp album. No matter where I am, if I put in Scarecrow i get some semblance of being home

Even as famous and successful as mj was, I wouldn't use the word musician to describe him. Singer or performer, or even megastar, yes.
