.C. Fogerty is a national treasure. The Swamp Rocker from El Cerrito. His concerts are outstanding. And he brings along top shelf musicians on the road with him. And yes, Kenny Aronoff is definitely one of them!! Creedence had the tightest rhythm section in Rock & Roll. Period.

There use to be an excellent web site with all of Fogerty's guitars and amps and other stuff. Pictures taken by a huge fan/collector of EVERYTHING that Fogerty uses/used in the studio and on the road. I don't see it now. This one's second best:

http://www.backonstage.halmstad.net/tk/fogag.htm

The baseball bat guitar that he used for "Centerfield" was given to the baseball hall of fame in Cooperstown.

Last I heard, Fogerty lives up near Brian Wilson, or near the last house he lived in.

I strongly recommend watching this DVD, recorded at the Wiltern in '05. I've watched it 47 times (I counted) already. A few songs in, a spotlight shines on the crowd and there's a guy wearing a "Brian Wilson Presents Smile" shirt. A lighlight is watching Billy Burnette playing guitar with John. The bass player is the spittin' image of Stu Cook!

Does "The Old Man Down the Road" sound like "Run Through The Jungle"?   Naaaaaaaaaaah.    Zanz Kant Danz.

I, I love the colorful clothes she wears, and she's already working on my brain. I only looked in her eyes, but I picked up something I just can't explain. I, I bet I know what she’s like, and I can feel how right she’d be for me. It’s weird how she comes in so strong, and I wonder what she’s picking up from me. I hope it’s good, good, good, good vibrations, yeah!!

To sum it up, they blew it, they blew it consistently, they continue to blow it, it is tragic and this pathological problem caused The Beach Boys' greatest music to be so underrated by the general public.

I enjoyed Revival and The Blue Ridge Rangers Rides Again, but this release I have no interest in at all. Reminds me of Ray Davies' last two cd's. Difference there, though, is that Ray was a very prolific writer for several decades. Other than his years with CCR, Fogerty has gone years between albums of new material. Oh well.

So, this short documentary comes from 2015 and is about the CCR member's current relationship and of course includes the question about a possible reunion. There's a nice surprise at the end of the dosumentary sort of re-unite in "sound". Watch here:

After reading John's book, I'd think the chance of a reunion are pretty slim.

The docu from above was filmed after the book came out. But of course that doesn't mean very much.
I guess a reunion would happen if Fogerty wants it. There's so much money in it that it would be hard for Stu and Cosmo to say no; that is of course if Clifford's health will improve - get well!

I haven't read the book. Can you recommend it?

Yeah, its a good book.  A little surprising as I though John had mellowed a bit and let go of some of his bitterness over the end of CCR, Saul Zauntz, etc

The only mellowing I see is towards his brother Tom. He does find some nice things to say about him - what a great rhythm guitarist he was, singer with a sweet voice like Richie Valens. He still can't find anything to say about Doug or Stu. Watching that video, though, I was struck at how weird John is starting to look - the hair dyed, the face looking slightly plastic. Doug and Stu both look their age - and that's a compliment. They look healthy - despite Cosmo battling the big C. Hope he is well.

I agree. All in all it looks like John's career tends more and more to the conservative/Nashville-establishment wing; and the clean cut look just adds to that assumption imo.
Anyway, this was just linked on facebook:



John Fogerty Signs With BMG For New Album, Solo Reissues: Exclusive

http://www.billboard.com/articles/news/7966018/john-fogerty-bmg-new-album-solo-reissue



I'd be interested if his 70s solo singles will be available at one point.

Other than some possible work to his face, and shorter hair, I don't think John has changed his look up too much in the last five decades.

It's amazing how managers really took advantage of musicians back then. 

I read somewhere that many bands continued to tour into their 60s and 70s because they didn't make nearly as much money in their hey day as fans might think.

When Little Richard was touring in the 90's, he said he was making more money than he did in his heyday. And speaking of ripoffs, there's another guy that really got a raw deal in the 50's. "I signed a contract that payed me half a cent for every record sold, but I never got the other half to make the penny!" Yeah, the managers and record companies knew what they were doing, they knew these young artists were so eager to get their music recorded, and they weren't business majors, so they got taken.

I know some artists like Grand Funk Railroad and Queen had to pay dearly to get out of bad contracts once they realized they were being screwed.
