    How come you never see Stephen King framed like that? Oh wait, he mustn't be cool enough....

    Its because Stephen King is nowhere near as good an author as KJA by KJA's standards. (Books in print per year)

    Besides, Stephen King doesn't have music producer in his resume...

    He does, actually. Or at least he will ... his project appears to be delayed until 2010.

    And King is actually working with someone people have heard of, not a bunch of prog wannabes messing around with their synthesizers. Say what you will about Mellencamp, but the man has paid his dues and found his own unique musical voice (after starting out as a bit of a wannabe himself).

    Now there's a musician I don't have to scratch my head and ask "Who the fuck?" about. :)

    Anyone else remember listening to him when he was John Cougar?

    Yo!

    I even remember the awkward transition period of "John Cougar Mellencamp."

    Or, as the famous philosopher Beavis once remarked: "You know, the guy with all the names."

    wasnt' the reason he used Cougar to begin with was because he was pissed off at his Dad and refused to use his father's last name?

    Seems like I remember hearing that before he went to the three names.

    I heard something like that, too, years and years ago. That he was one of the Indiana Mellencamps, said with appropriate emphasis to indicate they were rich big wigs or something, and he'd had a falling out with them or was trying to keep his relation to them secret, etc etc. etc. The Wikipeeee article on him gives no indication of any of it, though. Says something about his name being listed without his permission on his first album as "Johnny Cougar". :?: :!: :)

    KJA goes to the grocery store. He gets in the express aisle and places 3 yogurts, a bag of Cheetos, a frozen pizza, a six pack of bud, and a bottle of ketchup. The woman in front of him looks over his items and then says "You must be single."

    KJA says "You can tell that from from groceries?"

    The woman says "No, you are just really fucking ugly."
