Pretty cool! A private tour of John Mellencamp's new place, i.e., how a 'non struggling' artist lives.
On his first visit from his small town to the big city, Mellencamp recalls:
“I ended up going to New York and throwing all my cards on the table. I had a tape of me singing and a few of my paintings. The record companies wanted to give me money and the Art Students League wanted to take my money. So, I said, ‘I’m going this way.’”
John Mellencamp is famous for his music: He has recorded 24 albums, including the iconic American Fool, which features "Hurts So Good" and "Jack & Diane." He is also a respected artist whose paintings and other works have been exhibited across the U.S.
