Is there any truth to the rumor that John Fogerty will be releasing a back to his roots type album in 2015? Nothing would be better than a back to the swamp album from Fogerty. Would be the best album by anyone in thirty years.
LEE, Lee, Lee
I haven’t heard any such rumour ….nothing like that at all!!!
He’s on tour right now, so this is NOT the time that John usually takes a break to concentrate on new material…although what do I know?
He probably writes a new song every day….
Just like you and I punch a clock, the man is processing music in his own routine way.
It may not be an entire song but you know…a note or two that makes a stanza??? WHO really knows anything for sure?
Anyhow – – – – it’s a heck of a lot of work, you know and none of us take it for granted for one second….
I know that he is currently on tour, I just saw him in Cincinnati on the 25th. But I also know that years ago he released 3 albums in one year while touring with CCR. This man has more talent than we can think of. One of the greatest, who can do a lot at once.
I think the book will be finished first and hopefully in the stores by Christmas….when I have asked the question about new material on this site ….it is a standard reply john fogerty works on his music everyday. It would be nice if a new album was out to celebrate his 70th birthday, but who knows ?
As I’ve listened to the radio and read various music publications, both Bob Seger and Robert Plant have suggested that their newest albums might be their last. All of the groups I grew up with–CCR, the Kinks, Who, Allman Bros, etc.–are getting into their 70s. But then you look at Sir Paul McCartney and he puts on a 3 hour plus show at the age of 72. Knowing how much minutiae and detail JF puts into his recordings, I suspect that we are 18-24 months away from any new CD; not to mention that the music industry is changing so quickly that putting out CDs is not the money maker it once was. It will be interesting fo’ sure!
