Maybe he was joking around — or maybe he was dead serious.

After decades of tension, John Fogerty seems to have softened somewhat to the idea of reuniting with ex-Creedence Clearwater Revival band mates Stu Cook and Doug Clifford.

In a July 11 story by Calgary Herald writer Mike Bell, Fogerty said that when the subject of a reunion has come up recently, “I can tell that there isn’t the bombast in my voice, in the denial, in the refusal. It’s more like, ‘Well, I dunno.’ Never say never is I guess is what people tell you.

“Realizing that it doesn’t really kick up a big firestorm of emotion, it kind of suggests that at least if someone started talking I’d sit still long enough to listen.”

Fogerty is on tour this month in Canada, and he also has a handful of U.S. dates scheduled later this year.

As for Cook and Clifford, they’ll be touring North America through November as the leaders of Creedence Clearwater Revisited.
