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.
