Between 1976-1985 seemed like eternity always talk about a new LP but things always seemed to get in the way. I was a diehard Fogerty fan then and will always be one. So much crap in the music business I am just glad John survived. John could have thrown in the towel but he fought back and prevailed and is still making great music today.
We just came back from the Eastern Sierra’s yesterday. Talking about Green River we went out fishing and boating , off at the end of the lake there was a big rock and a big tree and two ropes hanging from the tree. These kids looked to having a great time swinging on the rope and dropping in the water. Some of the best things in life are free. WELL!
When I was little we had a cabin up HWY 39 in the San Gabriel Mountains. There was this little river that flowed past the cabin. A flood in 1969 washed half of it away so my Dad sold the little place. Over the years I would drive up there and sit by this little river and play Green River and other songs. Every time I go camping and there is river GR is the first song that plays in my head. If you get lost come on home to Green River Well!
Yep that guitar work on that song is unbelievable. When I can crank way way up in the car and my wife doesn’t complain then I know it’s something great. She looks at me and says they really play great together. Now that is what I’m talkin’ about.
