John Mellencamp posted on his website the full 30-minute interview he did last month on NBC’s Today show with correspondent Harry Smith.
In the interview John Mellencamp says rock is dead.
“…Dragging around the dead carcass of what was once an entire generation’s lifestyle.” Mellencamp also talked more about his fiance, actress Meg Griffin, calling her the funniest person he knows.
I have always been a fan of his music. I love, love, love “Scarecrow” and “Whenever We Wanted”. Are you a fan? Favorite album?
I met him and shook his hand once. I didn’t know what to say to him. He looked at me wondering what I wanted. I just said, “Hey man, nice to meet you”… I wish I said I was a big fan of his music. Maybe I’ll get another chance one day.
He heads back on the road February 7th in Indiana and currently has no Nebraska dates.
