Featuring interviews with everyone from childhood friends to band members, producers and engineers, this is a portrait of the real man who grew up in Indiana and still lives there today - a passionate musician and a tireless campaigner for the lifestyle and values of the American family farmer. Here then is the complete John Mellencamp story, tracking his progress as he matured from youthful rocker with a made-up name to major star with a social conscience. It is a journey typified by his 2007 release Freedom's Road, an impassioned call to arms to rediscover America's founding traditions of freedom, justice, and never-say-die spirit. It's an unlikely story but in the end an inspirational one that reveals a remarkable and unique fusion of heartland values and rock 'n' roll stardom.
