The mind-boggling hat trick in 1969 where “Bayou Country”, “Green River”, and “Willy & the Poor Boys” albums were all released by Creedence Clearwater Revival in a 13-month period. John Fogerty is my guest In the Studio.
In January 1967 when John Densmore’s snare drum cracked like a rifle shot before Ray Manzarek’s nimble fingers made their intricate run of baroque-sounding notes on that reedy Farfisa organ, all on the introduction to jazz/flamenco guitarist Robbie Krieger’s composition “Light My Fire”, it clearly and boldly announced a unique approach to rock and roll that really has no peer. And all of that before Jim Morrison stepped up to the microphone to introduce one of the greatest voices and hedonistic personalities in rock history.
