I interviewed John Fogerty for the WSJ. In today's paper:

http://alanpaul.net/2013/11/john-fogerty-interview-in-todays-wsj/

I linked through my site, because I'm more confident that will get you in through the paywall.

This is just a fraction of what we discussed. Looking at some good options for publishing a fuller length interview - probably in HTN.

Thanks. I enjoyed reading your interview and I hope you publish a longer one in HTN.

Interesting that he thinks longer solos are self indulgent. As an audience member I really appreciate longer solos and I don't perceive them as self indulgent. I saw Fogerty recently for the first time and while I loved everything about his show, I did find myself wishing for some longer solos! It's all good. He was great!

That soloing thing was part of a longer conversation... we discussed Herring and Widespread and the Lockn Festival at length... Just think about CCR songs compared to most of the Dead (not incl. American Beauty and Workingman's) and the length, # of songs, catchiness, etc...

To me, what always set Dickey and Duane apart from others was that they could play forever and they were never noodling... The noodling is what Fogerty objected to... He told me he "loves the Allmans."

"I got this image in my head of a shyster lawyer with a big cigar sitting in a tall building making all this money off the man's work.

I was disgusted by that and said, "It doesn't matter, Robert. The whole world knows these are your songs. No one can take that away from you." And I had an epiphany: This was exactly my own predicament. In that flash of insight, I said to myself, "You need to start playing your songs again before you're laying in the ground like Robert here." "

Now here's some advice that grumpy old Van Morrison could use!

Please elaborate. Does he not play his classic material?

I enjoyed the article. Thanks. I just saw Fogerty in DC Friday. It was a great show. Lots of songs played really well. The venue was DAR Constitution Hall. The show was as American as one can get. I told the neighbor who joined me that I thought it was better than a Springsteen show. My neighbor winced but, I stand by my opinion.

Too bad about the self indulgent guitar solos. Fogerty's guitar work was masterful. I heard lots of unique tones. I wouldn't of minded more self indulgence. While waiting for the show to begin there were facts about John being flashed on screen. One fact was that he practices guitar 4 hours every day then goes for a 6 mile run. He seemed really healthy.

Good interview Alan. I look forward to more.

Did the son question come from me?

Thanks Brock. No, I was curious about his son. It's a trend. Dickey and Phil both have their sons in their bands, too, for instance. I think it's interesting and cool. I'd do the same were I them.

And so does one Edward Van Halen. Wish someone would sit down with him for a no-holds-barred interview without preconditions on topics and fan-submitted questions. Wait, wrong forums. Carry on....

I meant to say that I did enjoy the Fogerty interview. Can't say I've ever really been a huge fan or really into his solo or CCR music, but it was an enjoyable read. He seems like he's gotten more fan-friendly in recent years too, doing online chats, etc.

Tom Waits' son is in his band as well.

Nice interview

Doesn't Peter Gabriel employ his daughter on vocals?

Thanks all. Interesting thread drift... this would be a pretty compelling story, actually.

It really is a good idea for a story. Also along the same lines I saw Duane Betts sat in with Devon Allman. Don't know how it would sound but it would certainly be a uniique situation if they pulled in Berry Jr and that Trucks Drummer Boy (Seth?) and just gave it a whirl. If they got Gregg's Daughter to sing they could be "Brothers & Sisters" or "Son' & Daughters" paying tribute to thier Dad's.

If nothing else it would be interesting.

Nepotism in Rock?

Is nepotism worst than selling generational rock anthems to corporations for commercials and television theme songs?

It may have been Sheckey Green whose joke went "Frank Sinatra Jr. has a great voice - the only problem is its in his fathers throat."

Nepotism or not I'm off to see Fogerty at the Beacon tonight

i will judge for myself if it is nepotism.
