Led Zeppelin isn’t the only band celebrating their 50th anniversary this year, Creedence Clearwater Revival is too! And in honor of the occasion Craft Recordings has released a video for the CCR classic ‘Fortunate Son’.
The tune is more than just an anti-war song it also expresses the frustration of the working class young men who were sent to war while the sons of the privileged got deferments or cushy positions in the military that kept them out of combat.
Perhaps this is the reason that CCR’s John Fogerty has devoted himself to various veterans causes over the years
