“As a songwriter, I try not to be sloppy; same with the music. You can be very lean, very efficient, so you’re not wasting a lot of time getting to the point.”John Fogerty
One of the greatest American songwriters, founder, singer and guitarist of legendary, world-renowned rock band Creedence Clearwater Revival, John Fogerty had a streak of hits, now classics, between 1968 and 1972, rivaled only by few others. Enduring, evergreen rock-pop standards such as “Fortunate Son”, “Bad Moon Rising”, “Green River”, “Born On The Bayou”, “Run Through The Jungle”, “Down On The Corner”, “Have You Ever Seen The Rain”, “Long As I See The Light” and “Proud Mary”, which has since been covered by hundreds of other artists, have earned Fogerty inductions into the Songwriter’s Hall Of Fame, Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, as well as being honored with a BMI ICON award. With their trademark soulful, swampy, blues-rock sound and Fogerty’s politically charged, socially conscious lyrics and memorable hooks, CCR have sold more than 30 million albums and singles in the U.S. alone and remain a strong thread in the fabric and culture of popular music globally.
