John Mellencamp Finds His Freedom
The rocker on his next album, his collaboration with Stephen King and why he almost quit the biz
Andy GreenePosted Jan 31, 2008 2:58 PM

既にご承知の通り、ジョン・メレンキャンプは、スティーヴン・キング原作のミュージカル作品"The Ghost Brothers of Darkland County"に取り組んでいる。

いろいろと紆余曲折はあったものの、なんとか上演に漕ぎ着けられるのではないか、と思える。

今までの経緯については、こちらのエントリーをご参照願いたい。

キング原作のミュージカルようやく完成か!?

なお、今回のインタビュー記事中のキングに関する部分を次に引用する。

Rolling Stone: Can we have an update on the Stephen King project [the "play with music" The Ghost Brothers of Darkland County]?

John Mellencamp: We have another workshop in New York coming up, and from there it goes into production in Atlanta, Georgia next spring. And then if it goes well in Atlanta, then we'll come to Broadway. If it don't go well in Atlanta, we're done.

RS: What can you tell me about working with Stephen?

JM: Oh, I love Steve. Steve is nothing like everybody thinks he is. Steve and I really have a lot in common. He lives in the middle of nowhere. I live in the middle of nowhere. He's not comfortable being around a lot of people. I'm not comfortable. We just have a — you know, we're kinda antisocial guys, and, of course, we're bigmouths.

RS: How did working in this new medium, the play, challenge you both?

JM: Steve is not used to a live performance. I am. So whenever the stage goes dark, he's pumped up, man. He's excited. Somebody came and watched the last reading that we had in New York and reviewed it. The review said this is a musical that men will enjoy. Unheard of, the guy said.
