Happy Birthday John Forgerty May 28, 1945


Recommended Posts

On May 28, 1945 John Forgerty of Creedence Clearwater Revival is born in Berkeley, CA.

I saw him once in 1995 at the Concert For The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Concert in Cleveland, OH. He was backed by Booker T. & The MGs and performed CCR classics "Born On The Bayou" and "Fortunate Son". Forgerty also performed with Sam Moore that night of the classic soul duo Sam & Dave.

When lists of greatest guitarists pop-up every year or so, John Fogerty's name never makes the grade. This irks me. The guy is a influential and innovative guitarist and one of the great writers of classic Americana popular music. Fogerty also re-invents himself and constantly evolves and de-evolves as a guitarist - the latter being in his fascination and love of Delta blues.

Happy Birthday!
