Video of John Mellencamp Performing Blues Classic Delia
(hennemusic) Last month, John Mellencamp was a guest on A&E's Private Sessions. While warming up for the show, which was taped in December, John played a song called "Delia," first recorded by Blind Willie McTell 71 years ago as part of producer Alan Lomax's sessions for the Library of Congress.
"If you look back at American music, like 'Delia,' it was all about death and suffering," Mellencamp told Rolling Stone.
"That why they call it blues. In today's world we have so many candy-coated songs that have become popular music." Watch it here
