John Fogerty is outraged President Trump he plays one of his very personal songs during election rallies, because the song is actually aimed at people like him.
Fogerty says he’s issuing a suspension and waiver order … at the request of Trump and co. refrain from playing Creedence Clearwater Revival’s massive hit, “Happy Son.”
Fogerti, who sings the song both in the band 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 and financial privileges. I also wrote about rich people who don’t play their fair share of taxes. “
John made it clear that he did not support DT. There have been other attempts to get Trump to stop playing other songs at his rallies, but the law allows it. Still, artists can express their dissatisfaction.
As you may know, Trump never served in the military because he received a delay – first a student delay, then a 1-Y delay after being diagnosed with bone spurs. And he grew up in a privileged house, which Fogerty sings about. In other words, Donald Trump was a happy son.
By the way … if you haven’t heard “Happy Son”, listen to him. It’s fantastic.
