All time is history. However…right now we appear to be living through a very historical time. For all the wrong reasons.
A Covid 19 pandemic systematically stealing lives.
Angry revolts in the streets of America. Divided friends and families.
Dark and lonely days my friends.
It’s a lot to ask music to heal these days but heal it can. That’s asking a lot of artists who are going through their own hell.
But try we must. heal we must.
Let’s try on Saturday night…One tune at a time including one very special song from John Fogerty.
It’s called Weeping in the Promised land.
John wrote the title down 25 years ago and only now has it become a record.
John couldn’t figure what the song wanted to say until 2020. Then it came to him.
Just John Fogerty at a piano and an unseen choir. Powerful stuff friends…
(the video below is a slightly different version of the one I’m going to play)
