Utterly fantastic interview, had to stop doing other things and just sit down and listen to it. Thought the Billy Bragg was great, but this….Listened to Long As I can See the Light with My Morning Jacket and I had tears in my eyes. I think you might just have the best job in the world.

wow.  listening to someone interview one of their own personal idols never felt so genuine.  i felt downright pathetic for crying when you told John that seeing him at sundance made you cry.  it was because i had already been whipped into fragility by the rest of the conversation.  I then proceeded to go out and buy bayou country and listened to it like i was hearing it for the first time.
thanks, Marc…great stuff.

Thanks for this interview. Funny but John telling about Bill Haley took me back to my school days. Living in Finland and going to school in city of Kotka in mid-70’s. Our teacher played us Bill Haley and the Comets’ Rock Around The Clock-album many times. Oh boy.

wow. i’ve listened to almost every episode, and have to say, this is one of—if not the best—interview i’ve heard.

This was an amazing interview, and once again Marc gets answers to questions I have not heard anyone else get out of Fogerty, and really show who the man is, and the way he thinks about his own history, and music. This is a must hear interview.

This is not just the best interview I have heard on your show but one of the best interviews I have heard of all time. I am a guitar player and this interview gave me a great insight into one of my heroes. Marc, you were very respectful of Mr Fogerty, giving him space to tell such amazing stories. A sign of a true gentleman.

It was great to hear that he is always learning. I’m 48, the dobro could be my mid-life crisis.

This interview was very emotional for both interviewer and interviewee. I enjoyed this immensely.

I must go now and strum for a few hours.

Marc, this has made you and your podcast #1.
