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.
By all accounts, John Fogerty and Bruce Springsteen aren't just peers, but bona fide friends who even perform together onstage sometimes. Well, that all ends today as we pit these two icons against each other in the first round of this month's UCR Hall of Fame voting.
It's usually pretty bad form to throw a big party for oneself, but when you're Howard Stern and your 60th birthday bash draws a crowd of famous faces that includes classic rockers like Slash, John Fogerty and Aerosmith's Steven Tyler, you get a pass.
