Master songwriter John Fogerty, author of hits "Proud Mary," "Fortunate Son," "Born On The Bayou" and "Who'll Stop The Rain," appears at the Palms Casino Resort on Oct. 17, 2014 in support of his newest album "Wrote a Song for Everyone."
Fogerty has been listed as one of the 100 Greatest Guitarists and the 100 Greatest Singers of all time by Rolling Stone and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1993 as part of Creedence Clearwater Revival.
Fogerty has had a career spanning more than half a century first as the lead singer and songwriter for Creedence Clearwater Revival, and its predecessor, the Golliwogs, and then as a solo artist. He continues to sing his hits live.
Between 1969 and 1971, CCR had nine Top 10 singles, all written by Fogerty, including "Proud Mary" and "Fortunate Son." In addition to their Top 10 singles, the group also earned eight gold albums between 1968 and 1972.
The hits ended when the group split in 1972. Fogerty, under the name Blue Ridge Rangers, released an album of covers the following year, and then followed it up with a self-titled album in 1975.
After years of settling business problems Fogerty re-emerged on the music scene in 1984 with "Old Man Down the Road," a Top 10 single, and the No. 1 album "Centerfield." "Eye of the Zombie," was released in 1986, however it didn't fare as well as prior successes and Fogerty ducked out of the public spotlight for 11 years.
The "Bad Moon Rising" author re-introduced himself into the music arena in 1997 with "Blue Moon Swamp," which received positive reviews and picked up a Grammy for Best Rock Album.
"Deja Vu (All Over Again)" hit stores in 2004 and in 2005 Fogerty was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame. "Revival" was released in 2007 and was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Rock Album of 2008 but lost to the Foo Fighters. That was followed by the 2009 album "The Blue Ridge Rangers Rides Again" which earned him another Grammy nomination, this one for Best Rock Solo Vocal Performance for the song "Change in the Weather."
Fogerty has continued to tour and make special guest appearances with other artists most notably his Oct. 29, 2009 performance at the 25th Anniversary Rock and Roll Hall of Fame concert with Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band.
His latest album "Wrote a Song For Everyone" celebrates Fogerty’s iconic songs with guest artists Foo Fighters, Miranda Lambert, Tom Morrelo, Kid Rock, Bob Seger, Jennifer Hudson, Allen Toussaint, and Rebirth Brass Band performing Fogerty's most famous songs with him.
