“I am done being a rock star. I have no interest in that, in having the biggest concerts. I have only one interest: to have fun while we’re doing this and maybe have something that somebody might discover.”
Jack White to Headline Farm Aid 2014 Alongside Neil Young, Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp & Dave Matthews
Jack White doesn’t seem to care too much about baseball, but he does care about America’s farmers. And to show his appreciation he’s headlining this year’s Farm Aid in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Yes, that guy from “The Voice”.
Hear that? Even Jack and Diane are yelling a resounding “YES!” outside the Tastee-Freez!
Bet your answer is the same as one of these artists’ names. And if you said, “Mellencamp?”…you’re obviously confused.
Willie Nelson, Dave Matthews and Tom Morello also paid tribute to the legend.
The comprehensive boxed set collection will feature nineteen CDs released by Mellencamp from his 35 year career, including American Fool, Lonesome Jubilee, Scarecrow, Cuttin’ Heads, Life, Death, Love and Freedom and No Better Than This.
Earlier this year, Farm Aid President Willie Nelson celebrated his 80th birthday, and the man shows no signs of slowing down. Beloved by millions not only for his music, but also for his activism and outlaw persona, he gets standing ovations the minute he hits the stage, before even playing a note. But if it’s actually possible to upstage Willie at Farm Aid, one man accomplished it at this year’s festival (which took place Saturday at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center in Saratoga, New York). And he’s fourteen years Willie’s senior.
