John Cougar Mellencamp - Pink Houses - Live from the MMaRchives

John Cougar Mellencamp recorded an MMaRchive Session with Pierre Robert on September 26th, 1991, at MMR’s studios at Rittenhouse Square. The session included Mellencamp plus two players in his band: Mike Wanchic (his longtime collaborator) and Kenny Aronoff (his drummer at the time, who has also worked with John Fogerty, Cinderella, Chickenfoot).

A small crowd had gathered in the lobby in hopes of catching a glimpse of Mellencamp. An excited kid named Chris stood out to Pierre - turns out he was a megafan! After OK-ing it with the band, Pierre invited him into the studio, and he was overwhelmed with joy! Hear Pierre tell the story on today’s podcast.
