John Mellencamp revealed to Indianapolis Monthly, that in addition to recently recording — he and Bruce Springsteen actually painted together: “Bruce and I have done two paintings together. We have a painting that we worked on for two days straight. He painted one side and I painted the other. Bruce had never painted at all and he was really good, really into it. I was surprised at how hard he tried. He was like, ‘How do you do this, John? How do I make this work?’ We’re trying to figure out how to sell it and give the money to charity. But I was proud of him. He went after it.”
