John Fogerty is no stranger to lawsuits, and he definitely seems to be taking the one recently filed against him by his surviving former Creedence Clearwater Revival bandmates in stride.

Fogerty has issued a response to the lawsuit with the press-release equivalent of brushing off one's shoulder, expressing bemused surprise and noting that he found out about it while he was driving his daughter to school.

"The people who come to my shows know they will hear me sing and play the songs I wrote and recorded over the past four decades of my career," he said. "Every night we play live, I’m thrilled to see all of those fans singing along to the songs that have touched them. I am at a wonderful place in my life. I am playing the music that I love and wrote, with full joy and having my son Shane joining along side of me -- it doesn't get much better than that."

Happy as that might make Fogerty seem, he also made it clear that he doesn't intend to take this lawsuit lying down -- or cave in to whatever his former partners' demands might be. "No lawyers, lawsuits or angry ex-band members will stop me ever again from singing my songs. I am going to continue to tour and play all my songs every single night I am out on the road," Fogerty concluded. "Rockin' all over the world!"
