In 2009, Kurt and Ian Marcus traveled with John Mellencamp on his tour with Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson, documenting the experience and filming Mellencamp as he wrote and recorded his 2010 record No Better Than This. In this clip, taken in July 2009, Mellencamp records the album cut "Coming Down the Road" with Jay Bellerose, David Roe, T Bone Burnett and Andy York in Memphis' historical Sun Studios. Shot in Super 8 like the rest of the film, the visuals give a timeless quality to one of America's most beloved songwriters.
The documentary, John Mellencamp: It's About You, will be available on DVD and Blu-ray on June 5th.
