John Fogerty Performs Theme Song for ‘Bones’ Spin-Off
Rock & roll hall of famer and CCR legend John Fogerty has written the theme song to the brand new TV series 'The Finder.' The show, a spin-off of the highly successful series 'Bones,' premieres this Thursday, Jan. 12.
Not only will we hear brand new Fogerty music in the show's opening, but a newly recorded, stripped-down version of his Creedence Clearwater Revival classic 'Fortunate Son' will be featured in the show as well.
And there's another surprise. According to the show's creator, Hart Hanson, Fogerty also takes on a role as an actor in the debut episode. "We are proud and pleased and still amazed to have enjoined a musician the caliber of John Fogerty to join our company," Hanson says. "John acts in the first episode and we hope to have him back! He's good." In this first episode, Fogerty has a stolen guitar returned to him by an Iraq war veteran, played by Geoff Stults, telling him "all my songs were in that guitar."
Concerning the theme song, Hanson said "When he sang and played on the set, we all stood in awed silence and grinned at each other. If just the smallest skritch of John's magic rubs off on us, then we'll be forever grateful."Hanson, a huge Fogerty fan, had wanted to name his production company 'Fortunate Son Productions' but someone else had already done so.
TV Guide readers voted 'The Finder' the No. 1 "Most Anticipated Show" of the new season. Last fall, Fogerty did a handful of shows where he performed the Creedence albums 'Cosmo's Factory' and 'Green River' in their entirety. Let's hope he takes that show on the road in 2012!
