“I’m not here to talk, I’m here to rock and roll.”

I was able to go see John Fogerty‘s Ottawa concert last night (see review), and it was a real treat. Just getting to see him play my favourite CCR song Fortunate Son was worth the price of admission.

John Fogerty

Fogerty played a truly great, high-energy concert with the speakers turned alllll the way up. It is especially amazing when you consider that he’s 62 years old! The interesting wrinkle was that he seemed genuinely happy that people liked his music and the show. It’s been a while since I’ve seen a bona fide rock star actually sound humble and appreciative.

Jim Cuddy of Blue Rodeo fame opened the show. I’ve always thought that he was a great musician, but he could definitely use some of Fogerty’s energy and enthusiasm.

Surprisingly. Impressed.

I’ve always got a good laugh watching Rick Mercer, although I’ve never been terribly comfortable with his anti-Americanism.

But I have to admit, he’s really been impressing me lately. Not as a comic per se, but as a spokesperson for the rank-and-file Canadian military who are serving in Afghanistan and elsewhere. I had already heard about his Christmas visit to the troops in Khandahar and his tank-driving exploits. (On the latter, if you don’t get the jokes about the holes and the best way to mount a tank, it’s probably because you don’t know that Rick is openly gay.)

But this editorial he wrote, really sealed the deal for me.

As Yoda would say: Funny and smart, Rick Mercer is.
