“Homeward Bound” Special - BOUND to be Special - THIS THURSDAY!
12.09.2008 - As noted, the 90-minute program visits Mellencamp’s hometown of Seymour and meets with the people who inspired his music and covers early career high—and low—points. The special features archival footage, personal photos, and interviews with childhood friends, band members, and other key people in his life. Bonus concert performances of several songs, including cuts from John's new album “Life, Death, Love & Freedom” are included.
According to Producer Anthony Uro, the documentary “really gives viewers an in-depth look at the John Mellencamp most people don’t see, because it’s not only about John, the successful rock star, it also paints a very detailed picture of John’s early life and career before he was famous, and the people, places, and events that shaped him as a person and as an artist.”
While the special ends with Mellencamp’s extensively-covered intimate concert at the Crump Theater in Columbus, Indiana, Uro is most excited about Mellencamp’s commentary in “Homeward Bound,” as Mellencamp offered much more time than the originally allotted.
