John Fogerty Demands Donald Trump Stop Playing ‘Fortunate Son’
John Fogerty is outraged President Trump plays one of his very personal songs at campaign rallies, as the song is actually aimed at people like him.
Fogerty says he’s issuing a cease-and-desist order … demanding that Trump and his colleagues. refrain from playing Creedence Clearwater Revival’s massive hit, “Fortunate Son”.
Fogerty, who sang the song both in the group and as a solo artist, made it clear it’s personal … “I wrote this song because, as a veteran, I was disgusted that some people were allowed to be excluded from serving our country because they had access to political privileges and I have also written about the rich who do not play their fair share of taxes. “
John clarified that he doesn’t approve of DT. There have been other attempts to get Trump to stop playing other songs at his rallies, but the law allows it. Yet artists can express their dissatisfaction.
As you may know, Trump never served in the military because he got a reprieve – first a student reprieve, then a 1 year reprieve after being diagnosed with spurs. bony. And, he grew up in a privileged home, something that Fogerty sings about. In other words, Donald Trump was a lucky son.
By the way … if you haven’t heard “Fortunate Son”, listen to it. It’s fantastic.
Our sincere thanks to
