Fogerty Now Open To Creedence Reunion? Really?

If you had asked me last night what was the most unlikely news I’d hear today, Casey Anthony winning mother-of-the-year and/or OJ escaping prison and capturing the real killers would have been up there.

Now I’m nervous because so would this have been.

If you read my post a couple days back regarding John Fogerty and his former outfit Creedence Clearwater Revival (now “Revisited“), you’d read how I marvelled at the fact that John remains openly and out rightly hateful towards his ex band mates Stu Cook and Doug Clifford (and even still to a lesser extent, former band mate and deceased older brother Tom).

If you’ve never seen VH1’s “Legends” segment, check it out here: honestly, some of John’s post-CCR comments are eyebrow-raising.

So now, after telling the Canadian Press a few days back that Creedence Revisited was sacrilege and that he wished the act didn’t exist as a competitor to his own, John is – wait for it – talking reunion.

Something even President Bill Clinton called for back in the day.

He tells Rolling Stone,  “Years ago, I looked at people and I was so full of some sort of emotion and I’d say, ‘Absolutely not!’ I have to admit, people have asked me more recently, and even though I have no idea how such a series of events would come to pass, I can tell that there isn’t the bombast in my voice, in the denial, in the refusal. It’s more like, ‘Well, I dunno.’ Never say never is I guess is what people tell you. In this life, all kinds of strange things come to pass.”

Please, book the Xcel Energy Center now: I may even just take off and stand in line, just in case.

But he did go on to add, “Realizing that it doesn’t really kick up a big firestorm of emotion, it kind of suggests that at least if someone started talking I’d sit still long enough to listen.”

Someone please, start talking.
