Rock star and 1980s icon became completely unhinged and destroyed a fan for one crazy reason

Mar 27, 2024

Some of the craziest people on God’s green earth are rock stars.

Too much fame and fortune can certainly go to your head.

But this iconic rock star just pitched a fit when a drunk in the crowd made a stupid comment and ruined the night for thousands who shelled out big bucks to see him.

Not everyone is meant to be a rock star

When you are in high school, you can probably predict the career path of most of your classmates.

The nerds who were acing every class are set to become the latest and greatest engineers and scientists.

The little lying guys in your class that were trying to steal your girlfriend were destined to be politicians.

But those kids in school that were outsiders, who didn’t quite fit in, and may be insane but were good with a guitar and loved to party, those classmates were born to be rock stars.

And this is especially true for the rock stars that made a name for themselves in the heart of the 1970s and 1980s.

Just think back to all the crazy rock and roll icons of the 70s and 80s.

Rolling Stones founding member Keith Richards was so addicted to snorting drugs that he ‘joked’ about snorting his dad’s ashes.

Ozzy Osbourne famously bit the head off of a bat during a performance in 1982.

Nikki Sixx from Motley Crue literally died of a heroin overdose only to be brought back to life by a shot of adrenalin only to overdose again in the same night.

But when you think of rock stars who are absolutely insane you have to add John Mellencamp’s name to the list.

Many people know John Mellencamp for his countless hit rock songs like “Small Town” and “Jack & Diane” that still are recognized by youth today.

Few rock stars have a resume like John Mellencamp as he has 22 Top 40 songs in the United States in his name along with 13 Grammy Award nominations.

The rock stars that have that type of resume is a short list.

But Mellencamp is also known for being straight to the point and brash when given the opportunity.

Mellencamp let’s his fans have it

And this Saint Patrick’s Day he did not let his brash reputation die as he totally destroyed a fan at one of his concerts.

While playing in Toledo, Ohio, Mellencamp was minutes into a story about his 99-year-old grandmother when fans in the audience started to grow tired of the story telling.

So one fan, probably a drunk fan, yelled out for Mellencamp to cut the crap and just play his hits.

Mellencamp stopped mid-sentence and uttered out, “what do you think I’ve been doing you c*** sucker?”

He then goes on to tell the management to find the guy and let him see the heckler after the show.

Then as Mellencamp was about to start back into the story another fan shouted something that made him visibly upset.

And he warned the crowd, “Guys, I can stop this show right now and just go home.”

But it gets worse for the crowd as the rock legend said “since you all have been so wonderful I’m going to cut about ten songs out of the show,” before he said “you know what, shows over” and walked off the stage.

Mellencamp did end up coming back on the stage minutes later with a lit cigarette in his mouth looking visibly agitated.

Now that’s something you don’t see every day at a concert.
