Starting in 1968, John Fogerty led Creedence Clearwater Revival on seven terrific albums. After years of playing in bands (he founded the Blue Velvets in 1959 with his brother Tom, also in CCR, and the Golliwogs in the first part of the ’60s), Fogerty went solo in 1972 and recorded as the Blue Ridge Rangers. After releasing a self-titled record in 1975, he took a 10-year break before returning with the double-platinum, No. 1 album ‘Centerfield.’ It sparked a career rebirth, which has resulted in the Grammy-winning ‘Blue Moon Swamp’ album and a steady stream of live performances where he still delivers CCR’s hits with commitment.
Born: May 28, 1945
Selected Discography: 'Centerfield' (1985), 'Eye of the Zombie' (1986), 'Blue Moon Swamp' (1997)
Don't expect John Fogerty to join the chorus of folks who think it was in bad taste for Bruce Springsteen, Dave Grohl and Zac Brown to perform his song 'Fortunate Son' at the Concert for Valor on Nov. 11.
