Creedence Clearwater Revival-Bayou Country- John Fogerty

Very rare interview with John Fogerty, who wrote and sang every Creedence Clearwater Revival song, played lead guitar & great chunky rhythm guitar, and produced every CCR album. When my parents could finally afford a little monaural record player, Bayou Country  with its “Proud Mary” and“Born on the Bayou” was among the first albums I ever bought. Their follow up Green River  album contained even more hits, including “Bad Moon Rising”,”Lodi“, and “Green River”, plus the song which serves as the title to Fogerty’s latest all star effort, Wrote a Song for Everyone .  As popular and admired by fans and other musicians as they were, it is safely said that no one has ever sounded quite like Creedence Clearwater Revival.
