Farm Aid Music Monday, Starring John Mellencamp in 1985 and 2012

MattMusic Monday is back with more videos from Farm Aid 2012 and Hersheypark Stadium! John Mellencamp co-founded Farm Aid with Neil Young and Willie Nelson. Since this year’s concert was held 27 years to the day after the first Farm Aid, I thought it’d be fun to include a video of John Mellencamp from that day in Champaign, Illinois. First up are "The West End’ and "Check It Out" from this year’s show and "Pink Houses" from 1985.
