Could've posted this in the other thread, but I suppose it's thread worthy.
After Davis showed John Mellencamp’s performance of “Pink Houses” from the first Farm Aid in 1985, he and Mellencamp talked about when Davis passed on signing the roots rocker because he had yet to develop his sound. “It’s a decision that’s come to haunt me,” Davis said, although Mellencamp said Davis made the right move.
At the time, Mellencamp was getting compared to Bruce Springsteen, and now, he revealed, he and The Boss have worked together. “Bruce is singing on the new record and is playing guitar,” Mellencamp said. “I finished the record a week ago today.”
