Happy B-Day John
On this date in 1945, John Fogerty of CCR was born. Now, it's about impossible to tell his story in a few paragraphs, but let's just say he was a "difficult" guy to work with. And after a total breakdown of the relationships with his brother (Tom), Stu Cook, and Doug Clifford...the end result was the original members of CCR never played together again, not even at their Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction. Even though they were from California, the band somehow cultivated what was called a "southern swamp-rock" sound, and they never tried to change the perception. Reality Check ... WHO CARES! It was great rock and roll, wasn't it! So John Fogerty fans, today I salute you!
