There's no stopping John Fogerty . The singer-songwriter and former frontman of Creedence Clearwater Revival made a surprise appearance Saturday night when he joined Mumford & Sons as part of the Gentlemen of the Road festival in St. Augustine, Florida. Fogerty apparently got a call on Friday afternoon about filling in for the band fun. whose lead singer, Nate Ruess , had been told to rest his vocal cords. Within a few hours, he was on a red-eye flight from Los Angeles to the Sunshine State.
Once he got to the festival, Fogerty performed twice. First, he played such CCR classics as "Down on the Corner," "Suzie Q" and "Fortunate Son," backed by British band The Vaccines . Fogerty then returned to the stage with Mumford & Sons for a set that included "Proud Mary," "Bad Moon Rising," "Lodi" and the single "Mystic Highway" from his new album Wrote a Song for Everyone . After the show, he said, "Travel thousands of miles, get a couple hours' sleep and play for 20,000 awesome fans with one of my personal favorites, Mumford & Sons… Oh [yeah], worth the trip!"
