John Fogerty BIO

50 years ago, in 1969, Fogerty wrote, recorded and released three amazing albums in one year with Creedence Clearwater Revival. First, in January of '69, just a short time after completing his military service, the album Bayou Country was released. The iconic"Proud Mary," a reflective song he penned as soon as he was discharged, rose to #2 on the singles chart. The same album also carried us all into the Louisiana backcountry with "Born on the Bayou". By August, with the release of Green River, two of his biggest tracks, "Green River" and "Bad Moon Rising" both spiked the U.S. chart at #2. As if any artist being responsible for two of his group's greatest albums in a single year isn't amazing enough, Fogerty led CCR to another album debut in November of '69. Willy and the Poor Boys, and its single "Down on the Corner" brought a happy, toe-tappin' track to their fans and it reached #3 on the charts. Probably the most famous of Fogerty's songs is, of course, "Fortunate Son" a protest song/anti-war anthem that became the mantra for a generation suspicious of those elites who blindly supported the use of military force, as many had seen in the Johnson administration and their supporters.
