Debuting today, “Lean on Me,” a new video from Fogerty’s Factory – the popular weekly video series from John Fogerty and his family, sons Tyler and Shane, joined by sister Kelsy. The video can be seen HERE.
In an amazing tribute to Father’s Day, leading his children in a stirring rendition of the Bill Wither’s classic, “Lean on Me,” John also takes the opportunity to support the American principle of equality for all, urging fans to be united and that “the time for us to stand together, is now.”
As John says as he intro’s the video, “We are living in a remarkable time. Protesters all across America and around the world are standing up against the evil that is racism. I’m so proud of the young people of this generation for reminding us all who we are. Now some people will say, ‘ah, John, I wish you wouldn’t get political’ – kinda like shut-up and dribble. But this isn’t about politics. It’s about human rights. It’s about empathy. It’s about compassion.”
While quarantining over the last three months, John and his family have been releasing videos every Friday as a YouTube series dubbed Fogerty's Factory. The videos feature many of John's most iconic songs - "Have You Ever Seen the Rain," "Proud Mary," "Centerfield". The series has attracted the attention of Rolling Stone's "In My Room" , Stephen Colbert, NPR's "Tiny Desk" and SiriusXM who created a The Fogerty Rockin’ Family Hour around it. John also recently celebrated his 75th birthday playing 'Centerfield' in the middle of Dodger Stadium.
