David Masciotra
Mellencamp: American Troubadour

David's excellent biography of John Mellencamp is not your average rock star bio!

The new paperback version of Mellencamp: American Troubadour, retailing for $27.95 on Amazon, will be available for purchase for $20, and the author will be happy to autograph your copy.
