Human Wheels is not a Tribute Band and makes no claims to be. They make no attempt to look like John Mellencamp or his band. Instead, Human Wheels devotes their efforts to sound like John Mellencamp and recreate select music from his albums released over the years. Let your ears be the judge, allow your memories to take over as you recall where you were when you heard these songs.
