The Eye of the Acoustic Storm

John Mellencamp

Each week, a different artist is spotlighted in "The Eye of The Acoustic Storm." Hourly segments of "The Eye" feature the artist's music along with bio information and sound bites.

Upon the advice of his manager, he started out as John Cougar but returned to his real name, John Mellencamp, for the 1985 release, "Scarecrow." Mellencamp was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame on March 10, 2008.
