Biography

John Mellencamp was born on October 7, 1951, in Seymour, Indiana.

Mellencamp's parents, who had originally planned to name him "Slate," decided instead to name him "John" after his great-great grandfather, thereby ensuring family lineage after he died.

Mellencamp formed his first band, Crepe Soul, at the age of 14 and later played in the local bands Trash, Snakepit Banana Barn and the Mason Brothers.

When Mellencamp was 17, he eloped with his pregnant girlfriend Priscilla Esterline. Mellencamp became a father in December 1970, only six months after he graduated from high school. His daughter, Michelle, later became a mother at age 19, making Mellencamp a grandfather at 36.
