Can you describe what the early days of CCR felt like? Working with John Fogerty?
In the early days it was fun; the later we got going it became a drudgery, because he insisted on being the business manager. He was a very talented artist and had no business prowess whatsoever and got the band into basically deals that were the worst possible scenario, and it seemed like those were all the ones he signed. And the ones that were really decent deals and some were universally new, it was tough to see things going haywire when he really didn’t know anything about what he was doing. We needed professional help and he wouldn’t do it. So many, many things happened; we have an entry-level recording contract to this day. We weren’t in the Woodstock movie; we just got in (new producer’s cut re-release) but because he waited to long to sign the deal, we’re only in the bonus tracks. Things that he could use in his career right now, being in the director’s cut, it’s incredible. I mean, you figure it out. You touched on Woodstock – what was that experience like? It was magnificent
