Vh1 Classic Rock Nights: Mike Wanchic Interview Excerpt
Vh1 Classic Rock Nights with Eddie Webb.
The fall leg of John Mellencampís No Better Than This Tour kicked off last
night (10/25) in Boston. Like any good group, John and his bandmates
rehearsed before hitting the road, and surprisingly, like many younger bands,
they did it in a garage. Mellencampís guitarist, Mike Wanchic, explained
it to us.
ďWe have a recording studio in a little town called Nashville, Indiana, which is
right outside Wilmington, had it since í76. It was a converted house.
It had a garage built into a hill out of blocks. That is our rehearsal
space. We actually rehearse in a garage, just like I did in the eighth
grade. Itís a nicer garage, but itís a garage.Ē
Mike and the rest of the band will be crossing the Eastern, Southern and
Midwestern regions of the country with John, playing shows through November.
