There'll be plenty of music today.
John Mellencamp (56 today), or The Artist Formerly Known As John Cougar Mellencamp, is a Midwest heartland-rocker of the most extreme variety. One gets the feeling that if he had the choice of being the Ruler of the World or a simple factory worker in some mythical homespun bastion of Honest Americana, he'd be on the train to Indiana before you can say "pot roast." His classics, "Jack and Diane," "Hurts So Good," "Lonely Ol' Night," "Small Town," "R.O.C.K. In the U.S.A.," and "Wild Night" are truly fun encapsualtions of small-town America. He also directed and starred in a movie -- guess what it's about?
