At the rally, John Fogarty spoke after Trump’s ‘lucky son’: ‘I find it confusing’


John Fogarty says he is confused as to why President Donald Trump wants to use the classic song “Lucky Son” of the Creeance Clearwater Revival during his publicity rallies.

In a video posted on Facebook on Friday (September 11), the 75-year-old musician reported that he wrote “Lucky Son” at the height of the Vietnam War in 1969, using his strength and influence to talk about the rich. To express disappointment. To avoid being drafted.

“It’s a song I can write now, so I find it confusing, I would say, that the president has chosen to use my song for his political rallies, when in reality it seems that he might ‘ Lucky son ‘is “said Fogarty, who was drafted and served in the military.

The singer / songwriter’s video message appears as a “lucky son” in response to the Trump campaign, as the president marched on an Air Force move for Thursday’s rally in Freeland, Michigan.

In the video, Fogaretti also read the opening lines from “Lucky Son” in reference to the president, using Confederate soldiers in early June, to explicit protesters in Washington, DC’s Lafayette Park for a photo-op at St. John’s Church.

“That’s exactly what happened recently at Lafayette Park when the president decided to take a walk in the park,” Fogarty said. “He cleaned the area using Confederate soldiers so that he could stand in front of St. John’s Church with a Bible.”

Fogarty is one of several artists speaking out against Trump for using his music in his rallies. Over the years, dozens of acts have criticized the president and issued notices for a cease-fire for unauthorized use, including Tom Petty, Neil Young, Rem, Rihanna, Pharrell, Guns N ‘Roses and Steven Tyler.
