Details of John Fogerty and the Ticket Luck value
American singer, songwriter and guitarist John Cameron Fogerty is well known for his affiliation with the swamp rock or roots rock band Creedence Clearwater Revival. Born in Berkeley, California on May 28, 1945, John Fogerty has grasp over many instruments including guitar, harmonica, piano, bass, drums, banjo, electronic organ, percussion, trumpet, trombone, dobro, mandolin, violin, and saxophone.
In the late 1950s, John alongwith his brother, Tom Fogerty, Doug Clifford, and Stu Cook together formed the band as Tommy Fogerty and the Blue Velvets in El Cerrito, California. Later in the mid 1960s, the name was changed to The Golliwogs, but the band remained ostracized.
In 1966 the government tried to draft Fogerty but as a substitute he joined an Army reserve unit. He served at Fort Bragg, Fort Knox and Fort Lee. Fogerty was released from the army in 1967.
By 1968, things started to take pace for the band. The band released its first album, the self-titled Creedence Clearwater Revival, and also had their first hit single, "Suzie Q". Other hit singles of the band include "Proud Mary", "Fortunate Son", "Up Around the Bend", "Lodi", "Green River", "Down on the Corner", "Travelin' Band", "Lookin' Out My Back Door", "Bad Moon Rising", "Have You Ever Seen the Rain?" and "Who'll Stop The Rain."
Later, John Fogerty took off with a solo career, formerly under the name The Blue Ridge Rangers for his 1973 debut, on which he played all of the instruments and covered others' hits, such as "Jambalaya" (which was a Top 40 hit) and some gospel songs like "Have Thine Own Way, Lord" and "Working On A Building". John Fogerty was released in 1975. It didnt earn much acclaim and legal problems delayed a follow-up, though it yielded two minor hit singles, "Rockin' All Over the World" and "Almost Saturday Night". The Georgia Satellites later combined the two songs as "Almost Saturday Night/Rockin' All Over the World". Creedence Clearwater Revival's former music publisher (affiliated with Fantasy Records) filed a suit against Fogerty, alleging that his new, solo compositions sounded too much like his former work as songwriter for Creedence.
John was facing some legal trouble with Fantasy records from the time Creedence had broken up. Fantasy decided to hold John to his contract after Creedence split up. Fogerty had stated that the other members of the group were set free, but the label told him that they would maintain ownership of his future recordings. John stated that he owed Fantasy around 46 tracks.
In 1972 after the dismemberment of the band, John became so hostile towards his bandmembers and Zaentz that he decided to stop playing Creedence material during his live shows. John didn't want anyone else making money off his work. He even annulled agreement with Fantasy Records by giving up his future royalties.
After the self-titled album was released, John worked on an album that would have been otherwise titled Hoodoo. In April 1976, John released, "You got the Magic/Evil Thing" which turned into a major disappointment. The album was rejected by Asylum Records on the night it was to be released.
Taking along with him a feeling of rejection, John moved his family to a farm in Oregon and didn't release a new album for eight years. John affirmed that he instructed Asylum Records to destroy the master tapes for "Hoodoo" sometime in the 1980s. Rather of a purist, Fogerty often destroyed unreleased material.
In September 2005, Fogerty returned to Fantasy Records. That was made possible when DreamWorks Records was absorbed by Geffen Records, which dropped Fogerty but continued to distribute his earlier solo albums (coincidentally, Geffen started out as an independent label distributed by Fogerty's earlier label Warner Bros. Records). The first album released under the new Fantasy contract was The Long Road Home, a compilation CD combining his Creedence hits with solo material which was issued on November 1, 2005. On June 13, 2006 a live DVD named The Long Road Home - In Concert was released and included live versions of his biggest solo hits and hits of Creedence Clearwater Revival. The live concert was also issued on a double CD with the same name on October 31, 2006.
Also in September 2005, Fogerty was introduced by Bill Clinton, former U.S. President, at the From the Big Apple to the Big Easy Hurricane Katrina relief concert at Madison Square Garden in New York, NY. His set included his own versions of Born on the Bayou and Proud Mary.
During summer of 2006, Fogerty toured the USA with Willie Nelson. On June 29, he performed his first headlining British concert since 1972, at the Hammersmith Apollo Theater in London, not to mention his performances in Sundsvall, Sweden. 25,000 people came to see him perform at the town square.
On September 13, 2006, Fogerty had his first concert in Mexico City, at the Auditorio Nacional, which was sold out to 10,000 fans.
On Thanksgiving Day 2006, Fogerty performed during halftime of the Miami Dolphins/Detroit Lions game, as well as the Denver Broncos/Kansas City Chiefs halftime later that evening.
Fogertys first new album Revival, completed in three years, was released on October 2, 2007.
With his consent, Fogerty songs have also been covered by other prominent artist including Ike & Tina Turner's version of "Proud Mary" and British band Status Quo's version of "Rockin' All Over the World", which was a huge hit worldwide. The cover of Fogerty's song was chosen to open Live Aid and was included in the Concert for Diana since it was her favorite.
