RARE: Mike Wanchic, John Mellencamp: "I learned how to play from all those junkies" Mike Wanchic Interview: This was an absolutely KILLER conversation! Mike absorbed and learned the basics of music and guitar from the recovering heroin addicts (all professional jazz musicians), in a well-known hospital his father ran… meeting John Mellencamp & how the band slowly progressed by deliberately tweaking various aspects of their sound and songwriting to improve at their craft, NOT chasing pop culture trends, how Mike became John’s co-producer and the skills that made him good at it, working with Mick Ronson, Ian Hunter, Steve Cropper… how to build a good live show, diligence, work ethic, connecting with your audience, Mike’s cool vintage strats, loyalty, fatherhood and more. First-Class all the way - a MUST Listen! If you’d like to support this show: http://www.everyonelovesguitar.com/support  Mike Wanchic has been John Mellencamp’s guitarist, and then producer… since 1976.

Episode 20 with David Grissom (Storyville, John Mellencamp, Joe Ely, Austin based Solo Artist) What is it about Texas and it's reputation for gunslingin' killer guitar players? You know the old cliche' "something in the water?", well, this certainly applies to the Lone Star State...think of the guitarists that have emerged from here- Stevie Ray and Jimmie Vaughn, Eric Johnson, Billy Gibbons, David Holt, Charlie Sexton, and newer cats like Carter Arrington- etc..but way up at the top of that list is my guest today- Mr. David Grissom. A veteran of the John Mellencamp band, Joe Ely, Storyville and the Dixie Chicks, he's also appeared on many records as a session player and songwriter. I've known David for a long time as you'll hear- we toured together for a few months in the late 90's with BB King when I was in the Neville Brothers and he was in Storyville. In this interview we talk early days in Austin, string bending, influences, gear, Mellencamp, Lloyd Maines and steel guitar as an influence, Norman Blake, Ringo Starr, solo records etc...and much more. Couple of great little jams in here too! On a nice day in Austin I got in an Uber from the hotel and headed over to David's studio where we did this interview. Hope you enjoy!   Recorded Austin, TX Sept 2017Support this podcast at — https://redcircle.com/the-riff-raff-with-shane-theriot/donationsAdvertising Inquiries: https://redcircle.com/brandsPrivacy & Opt-Out: https://redcircle.com/privacy
Episode 101: Matt Lewis / John Mellencamp Scot and Jeff discuss John Mellencamp with Matt Lewis.
Introducing the Band:
Your hosts Scot Bertram (@ScotBertram) and Jeff Blehar (@EsotericCD) are joined by guest Matt Lewis. He’s a senior columnist for The Daily Beast, author of the book Too Dumb to Fail, and host of the podcast “Matt Lewis & The News”. Follow him on Twitter at @mattklewis.
Matt’s Music Pick: John Mellencamp
In an episode with the biggest singer name confusion since our Pixies show, Political Beats takes on the music and career of Johnny Cougar/John Cougar/John Cougar Mellencamp/John Mellencamp.
This is one that Jeff was not necessarily looking forward to, but an episode we hope many of you are excited about. Scot and Matt do their best to convince Jeff of the worthiness of Mellencamp&#8217;s catalog, while Jeff begrudgingly admits yes, there are some outstanding albums to be had.
Mellencamp’s career began with a series of albums that stiffed (except in Australia!) before finally hitting paydirt with American Fool. He followed that with a run of classic LPs, Uh-HUH, Scarecrow, and The Lonesome Jubilee, in which his lyrical focus jumped from a being a tough-guy ne&#8217;er-do-well to bemoaning the state of American farms and the living conditions for many lower-class people in the U.S. In that transition he also moved from a Stones-meets-Springsteen presentation to introduce fiddle, banjo, dobro, and many other folk/country instruments not usually heard on rock tracks.
An argument is made that while Mellencamp is not the greatest lyricist, he is a great storyteller and is able to convey the feeling of his songs effectively. Even in his more “protest”-minded songs, he’s able to craft a narrative that avoids finger-pointing (for the most part) and focuses on the problem at hand. And he has a knack for writing melodies that are hard to forget.
You can’t tell the story of 1980s and 1990s rock without including multiple songs by Mellencamp. One word of caution: if you&#8217;re a fan of his output for most of this century, well, you might be disappointed. All of us have tried to get into the recent albums that feature a more stripped-down folk sound but, unfortunately, we have very few compliments to throw around concerning that music.
Whether you’re from the big town or a small town, John Mellencamp’s music likely resonates on some level. Check it out . . . and check out this episode of Political Beats.
