Today I’m remembering a guy I used to know back in the day who was trying to make it big in the music business. I got the impression he viewed himself as a sort of John Mellencamp of our generation. The only problem is that he didn’t have Mellencamp’s song writing abilities and didn’t sing.

And he wasn’t a real good dancer.

Aside from those things, he was exactly like Mellencamp.

Basically, a chain-smoking jerk.
