What a lovely man. How amazing was Marc’s fanboyish conclusion?

This and the Sam Simon interview are the best I have heard in a really long time… and I listen to so many different podcasts…

there should be an award for this…

love john fogerty and his music,but[on this day with marc] he’s not the most compelling story teller.  i like huey lewis’s music a lot less,but he’s a much more interesting talker. at the very least,this is true of these two chaps on a given day. one conversation does not a life make,obviously.

What an amazing interview.

Please do not feed the trolls.

Adam May 28, 2013 at 7:01 pm

Thanks, Marc.

I’m having trouble listening to this because he sounds so much like Bob Odenkirk doing an imitation of John Fogerty. Am I alone on this one?

That Bad Moon Rising story is Heart-breaking! Tears are still on my cheeks. Made me see war and kids and soldiers (and songs) in a new way.

Best WTF interview ever. I had no idea what a nice guy John is and that his life story is so heart wrenching. I felt like I was watching a movie of his life—it was that piercing.

Great job Marc.

Oh man this episode hits the sweet spot. Such a warn, generous soul on that guy.

Certainly pay no attention to a previous comment about Fogerty not being an “interesting talker.” I have no idea what interview that guy must have been listening to, but the one I listened to had Fogerty being very interesting, engaged, energetic, and thoughtful.

I guess that after the talk of love and the state of grace with his brother and bandmates I must have been all geared up for the ending, ‘cause the waterworks started over here when Marc made his closing speech about crying watching John play, etc. Great conversation. Happy for you that you got to do it.

I love/hate these damned music ones…..It’s only a hour or so but it takes me six hours to listen cuz I keep stopping, going to youtube and listening to all the songs they talk about! Love it Marc! Great job on this one!

John June 09, 2013 at 4:16 pm

My guess is that you are not friends with Bob Lefsetz. At least, not anymore.

Damn! Such a great interview of a true musical genious. Marc you are doing such a fucking great job with your show! I wish i was worthy to be on it!
