John Mellencamp-Jack and Diane-Rehearsal 12-91

Just a few days prior to Christmas 1991, John Mellencamp was rehearsing his band in his garage…for real… in the snow-covered hills of Central Indiana in preparation for their upcoming 1992 tour. I was invited to interview him and record the band in rehearsal, thus this performance of  “Jack and Diane” is absolutely live,  no overdubs. Features the big cracking drums of Kenny Aronoff.  In memory of accordion/keyboard player John Cascella . –Redbeard
