John Fogerty Responds to CCR Lawsuit, Still Playing 'All My Songs'

Genres 11:50AM EDT

The John Fogerty/Creedence Clearwater Revisited legal battle took another turn Tuesday morning, Dec. 9, when Fogerty released a press statement denouncing his former bandmates's intentions to thwart him of CCR-related glory. On Monday, Dec. 8, we reported that, for the first time in the nearly 20-year lawsuit history between the two parties, Fogerty was the one being sued. A new suit by drummer Douglas Clifford, bassist Stuart Cook and late rhythm guitarist Tom Fogerty's wife Patricia is seeking financial punishment for Fogerty, who has been allegedly besmirching the group's Creedence Clearwater Revisited name and advertising his own shows with the CCR label despite contractually agreeing not to. Here was Fogerty's full response Tuesday, via radio.com: "I was driving my daughter to school yesterday and I was surprised to learn I was being sued by my former band mates who call themselves Creedence Clearwater Revisited. "The people who come to my shows know they will hear me sing and play the songs I wrote and recorded over the past four decades of my career. Every night we play live, I'm thrilled to see all of those fans singing along to the songs that have touched them. I am at a wonderful place in my life. I am playing the music that I love and wrote, with full joy and having my son Shane joining along side of me-it doesn't get much better than that. "No lawyers, lawsuits, or angry ex-band members will stop me ever again from singing my songs. I am going to continue to tour and play all my songs every single night I am out on the road. "Rockin' all over the world! "John Fogerty"READ MORE

John Fogerty of Creedence Clearwater Revival Defends Bruce Springsteen's Concert for Valor Performance of 'Fortunate Son'

Buzz 13:13PM EDT

At Tuesday's Concert for Valor in Washington, D.C., Nov. 11, Bruce Springsteen stirred up plenty of controversy when he performed Creedence Clearwater Revival's 1969 anti-war classic "Fortunate Son" alongside Dave Grohl and Zac Brown, with many conservative critics saying that the song's message was disrespectful to the veterans that the concert was honoring. In response to the outcry, CCR frontman John Fogerty, writer of "Fortunate Son," has released a statement defending Springsteen's performance. "'Fortunate Son' is a song I wrote during the Vietnam War over 45 years ago," Fogerty said in the statement, via "Rolling Stone." "As an American and a songwriter, I am proud that the song still has resonance. I do believe that its meaning gets misinterpreted and even usurped by various factions wishing to make their own case. What a great country we have that a song like this can be performed in a setting like Concert for Valor."READ MORE

Bruce Springsteen Criticized for Singing Anti-War 'Fortunate Son' at Concert for Valor [WATCH]

Buzz 12:08PM EDT

Bruce Springsteen is finding himself in a bit of trouble this morning following his performance at the Concert for Valor, the free Veteran’s Day concert held on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. Along with Dave Grohl and Zac Brown, Springsteen performed a rendition of Creedence Clearwater Revival’s 1969 classic “Fortunate Son,” whose anti-war message rubbed plenty of people the wrong way, with many feeling it was an inappropriate song choice at a concert honoring our nation’s veterans. In an editorial on conservative website "The Weekly Standard," Ethan Epstein wrote that Springsteen, Grohl and Brown's performance of "Fortunate Son" was "tone deaf" and a "terrible choice given that [the song] is, moreover, an anti-draft song, and this concert was largely organized to honor those who had volunteered to fight in Afghanistan and Iraq." Plenty of viewers also took to Twitter — of course — to voice their outrage, which you can check out below:READ MORE
