Well, I just don't know. Artists love to play around in other genres, expanding their creativity, challenging themselves. There are lots of examples of musicians who are also painters (Tony Bennett comes to mind), or songwriters who try their hand at prose (lest we forget Dylan's Tarantula or Lennon's In His Own Write). Mr. Bennett aside, those who manage to become two-sport all-stars are few and far between. There aren't many Bo Jackson's among musicians.In this case, we have a team trying that stretch. And they've been at it for awhile. It started 13 years ago, when John Mellencamp phoned up Stephen King to suggest they turn a true story that happened in his hometown into a play. King was up for it, and slowly the work took shape. King wrote the play (performed first last year), Mellencamp the songs, and T-Bone Burnett was brought in to produce a soundtrack of the songs, so it works as an audio piece as well. It's certainly a unique work, actors, singers and musicians all part of the play.
