John Mellencamp- Big Daddy 35th Anniversary 6-17

With 1989’s Big Daddy, we find Indiana singer/songwriter John Mellencamp, who ran the table in the Eighties with four platinum albums in a row, writing even more while enjoying it less, and wondering aloud why he still wasn’t happy.

John Mellencamp joins me In the Studio for an unfiltered conversation about the songs “Pop Singer”, the despairing “Jackie Brown”, the Reagan Era pithy “Country Gentleman”, and the terrific B-side cover of “Seventh Son” all to mark the thirty-fifth anniversary of Big Daddy. -Redbeard
