John Mellencamp says his friendship with Bruce Springsteen came about thanks to an unexpected source - ex-Police frontman Sting.
Mellencamp says he and Bruce became friends after performing together at a 2019 charity concert for Sting's Rainforest Fund.
He told the story in an interview with Forbes: "all of a sudden he was like my big brother, and he treated me like I was his sibling... we became really good friends, and it just kind of happened. He came to Indiana, he stayed at the house. It was great."
The duo worked together on three songs that appear on Mellencamp's new album Strictly A One-Eyed Jack, due out this Friday.
