Another uselss fact from rocker72. John mellencamp first started out as Johnny Cougar, then john Cougar mellenCamp then john mellencamp. he hails from Indiana. He smokes 3 packets a day(I thought I was bad) and has signed to a lifetime contract with a record company. Listen to Nothin matter's and what if it did or SCarerow or the lonesome jubilee. He has his fans and is very underrated. I think the ghost.... you can get on CD. I assume there will be no tour to Europe.

Hey Rocker1972 - Wikipedia mentions his first 2 albums were never released in America. Do you know if they're worth seeking out?
