Mellencamp, King Work On Musical

John Mellencamp and fiction writer Stephen King expect to complete the musical they’re working on sometime in February.

Mellencamp said the two plan to meet in February to finish the musical, which he termed “an American story.”

“Steve has written the most beautiful story,” he said. “I’ve written about five songs for this thing and there’s not one rock song anywhere near it.”

Mellencamp said he still has about 10 songs to write for the production.

“If this works like we think it’s going to, it’ll be great,” he said.

The 49-year-old singer and his nine-piece band embarked on their latest concert tour July 31 in San Diego. The tour will return to his home state of Indiana in late September for the annual Farm Aid event.

Mellencamp’s 20th album, Cuttin’ Heads, has been scheduled for a probable fall release.
