John Fogerty

With their classic brand of rootsy, Americana rock, Creedence Clearwater Revival became one of the big US bands of the late 1960s and early 1970s, winning over both the hippy generation and the macho, Southern rednecks and breaking into the pop charts with their hits Proud Mary, Bad Moon Rising and Born On The Bayou. After an acrimonious split in 1972, chief singer songwriter John Fogerty turned solo with debut The Blue Ridge Rangers (1974), before he hit Number 1 in the US album chart with Centerfield (1985) and scored the hits The Old Man Down The Road and Rock & Roll Girls. Record company wrangles diverted him, but his sun-blessed melodies and bluesy soul produced the Grammy Award-winning Blue Moon Swamp (1997) and the acclaimed Déjà Vu (All Over Again) (2004) and Revival (2007). Fogarty also penned the Status Quo hit Rockin' All Over the World, was a noted influence on Joe Strummer, Bruce Springsteen and Bob Seger and remains an important figure in American music.
