John Fogerty

John Cameron Fogerty achieved fame as the lead singer/songwriter and guitarist in Creedence Clearwater Revival and has since gone on to a chart-topping solo career. Born in Berkeley, California, Fogerty and his brother Tom organized the group that would become Creedence as the Golliwogs in the late '50s. As Creedence, they released nine Top Ten singles, all written by Fogerty, between 1969 and 1971, starting with the standard "Proud Mary." They also scored eight gold albums between 1968 and 1972, all fueled by Fogerty's simple, driving rock songs and his burly baritone, intoning deceptively poetic ("Bad Moon Rising") and even political ("Fortunate Son") lyrics.

Creedence split up in 1972. Fogerty at first confused his considerable following by releasing an album of covers, on which he played all the instruments, under the name the Blue Ridge Rangers in 1973. This was followed by a formal solo album, John Fogerty, in 1975, and then silence for more than nine years while the artist worked out business problems with Creedence's old label. But Fogerty returned at the end of 1984 with a Top Ten single, "The Old Man Down the Road," and a number one album, Centerfield. Eye of the Zombie was a less successful follow-up in 1986. Following the failure of Eye of the Zombie, Fogerty went into seclusion. For the next 11 years he remained quiet, finally resurfacing in 1997 with Blue Moon Swamp; the live Premonition appeared just a year later. In 2005 he released the Long Road Home: The Ultimate John Fogerty/Creedence Collection and its accompanying DVD Long Road Home: In Concert, the first compilation of its kind to feature both CCR classics and Fogerty's solo work. After a number of concert appearances, Fogerty released Revival in 2007. Revival was warmly received, debuting at 14 on Billboard and earning a Grammy nomination for Best Rock Album, and Fogerty followed it in 2009 with The Blue Ridge Rangers Rides Again, a loose sequel to his bluegrass-flavored 1973 pseudo-solo debut. Over the next few years, Fogerty toured with regularity and then he launched the ambitious Wrote a Song for Everyone project in 2011, an album where he paired up with other singers to perform songs from his catalog. The record -- featuring such stars as Bob Seger, Alan Jackson, Foo Fighters, Miranda Lambert, and Brad Paisley -- was released in May of 2013. ~ William Ruhlmann, Rovi

His band was the soundtrack for the Vietnam War. I served from 1969 to 1972. Everywhere you went, Creedence was blaring from a boombox.

Still hard to believe Creedence Clearwater never had a #1 single back in their day. Especially with so many great tunes, Suzi Q, Down on the Corner, Up Around the Bend, Heard it Through the Grapevine, Who'll Stop the Rain, and their best of all, Run through the Jungle. Just amazing that none of these ever reached a #1. They made the Top 10, but never a #1.

Great voice, but a considerable exaggeration to say he had a a chart-toppin g solo career. The Old Man Down the Road was really weak, and Centerfield just a niche record. Revival (the CD) was better, but nothing even comes close to his work with CCR--don't know if it was the personnel or the times. I'd take a minor song like Stuck in Lodi Again over anything in the last 40 years.

Creedence is closer to my idea of White rock 'n' roll than any other. The driving shoulder to the grindstone with vocal chords pushing and reaching for a climax.

The biography is lame. It makes only a trivial reference to his legal issues.
