The first five records of John Mellencamp's career were recorded under heavy meddling, but after hitting it big with 1982's 'American Fool,' he finally had enough clout to ignore his label and his management. The result was an album that cemented his rock-star status while flashing the fierce populist streak that would come to define his music.
At 22 years and counting, Farm Aid is one of the longest-running rock festivals around -- but as far as co-founder Willie Nelson is concerned, the fact that the show still exists is actually something of a disappointment.
The date and place for the yearly festival that is Farm Aid — headlined and hosted by Neil Young, Willie Nelson, Dave Matthews and John Mellencamp — has been announced. On Saturday, Sept. 22, 2012, the concert will find it’s home at Hersheypark Stadium in Hershey, Penn.
Several concerts are planned to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Woody Guthrie's birth this year, and John Mellencamp will headline one of those. The show happens March 10 in the late folk-music legend's hometown of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Not too far to drive!
