A friend got me thinking about John Fogerty the other day, and I went searching for more recent videos of his on YouTube. This one happens to showcase one of my favorite Fogerty songs, “Fortunate Son.” (There’s a longish intro, song begins about 58 seconds in.) It’s a fantastic rendition that shows the power of live rock & roll at its best and makes a very timely statement as well. According to a commenter on the YouTube page, the drummer who steals the show here is Kenny Aronoff—and you should probably do whatever he says. Have your computer hooked up to good external speakers or decent headphones and crank this up LOUD!
Excellent, excellent music. Behold the thunder and the rage.
