Featuring interviews with everyone from childhood friends to band members, producers, and engineers, this is a portrait of the real man who grew up in Indiana and still lives there today – a passionate musician and tireless campaigner for the lifestyle and values of the American family farmer. Here then is the complete John Mellencamp story, tracking his progress as he matured from a youthful rocker with a made-up name to a major star with a social conscience. It's an unlikely story but in the end an inspirational one that reveals a remarkable and unique fusion of heartland values and rock 'n' roll stardom.
