VH1 Classic News: John Mellencamp Surviving And Then Some
10.07.2008 - Today is John Mellencampís birthday! The singer turns 57 and he explained to us
that as great as surviving is, there is more he wants to do.
ďI understand that surviving is a noble cause and I think thatís ok and
thatís fine for guys who want to do that, but if Iím gonna do something, itís
not so much getting my message or my thoughts out, itís just trying to get
people to feel good about themselves and come to the conclusion that Iíve come
to is that if you want a better world it starts with you.Ē
John will be spreading his word Down Under next month. The singer kicks off a
tour of Australia and New Zealand on November 15th.
