Biography

Singer-songwriter John Fogerty was the chief architect behind Creedence Clearwater Revival, one of the most popular rock bands of the 1960s and 1970s, before enjoying a sporadic if frequently successful solo career into the new millennium which found him continuing to explore the deep vein of Americana he tapped with such songs as "Proud Mary," "Bad Moon Rising," "Fortunate Son," "Who'll Stop the Rain" and other iconic songs of the decade. Fogerty's brawny, soulful baritone and stinging guitar anchored Creedence's signature sound, a heady mix of rockabilly, R&B, country and extended jamming shot through with the rough-hewn poetry of his lyrics, which evoked Southern folklore, blues idioms and a Louisiana twang that would influence generations of roots rockers and alternative country and folk musicians. Creedence would split acrimoniously in 1972, after which Fogerty would struggle for the better part of the next decade to maintain a solo career in the face of near-constant legal battles with his former label, Fantasy Records, over financial issues. The conflict came to a head in 1985 when Fantasy accused him of plagiarizing a Creedence song for "The Old Man Down the Road," a single from his 1985 hit album Centerfield. He prevailed and resumed his solo career, which continued to grow in stature and popularity into the new millennium. John Fogerty's vast songbook of hit tunes, which stretched over four decades, made him an enduring and influential figure in the history of American popular music.
