    That’s a cool story, Rockin Maniac.
    Creedence at first was a tough cookie to chew for our old folks at home, but over time, hearing those Creedence songs being played over and over on our little turntables converted the most steadfast old timer.
    Rock and Roll was a force to be reckon’d with!!!

    My older sis adored Led Zepplin and I love them too, but not all of their songs. I saw Roger Waters in concert, but unfortunately his music isn’t of the highest consistency.
    I get a zapped with a zep headache if I listen to them too long…ouch.

    I love John Fogerty’s song catalog the most because his songs are so full of some sort of musical juice that pumps a person up.
    Even when he’s singing about something bad, like Feelin’ Blue – it energizes me.

    John brings a certain energy into a space….he really knows how to play da blues and da rock.

    Lyrics – Creedence Clearwater Revival – Feelin’ Blue Lyrics

    Hey, look over yonder, out in the rain
    Soakin’ wet fever in my brain
    Now I ain’t certain which way to go
    But I got to move, sure

    Feelin’ blue, blue, blue, blue, blue
    Feelin’ blue, blue, blue, blue, blue
    Feelin’ blue, blue, blue, blue, blue
    I’m feelin’ blue, I’m feelin’ blue

    Hey, look over yonder, behind the wall
    They’re closin’ in, I’m about to fall
    Now I’m no coward but I ain’t no fool
    Feel it in my bones, my book is due

    Feelin’ blue, blue, blue, blue, blue
    Feelin’ blue, blue, blue, blue, blue
    Feelin’ blue, blue, blue, blue, blue
    I’m feelin’ blue, I’m feelin’ blue

    Hey, look over yonder, up in the tree
    There’s a rope hangin’ just for me
    Without a warnin’, without a warnin’
    Things are pilin’ up to break me down

    Feelin’ blue, blue, blue, blue, blue
    Feelin’ blue, blue, blue, blue, blue
    Feelin’ blue, blue, blue, blue, blue
    I’m feelin’ blue, I’m feelin’ blue

    Hey, look over yonder, out in the street
    People laughin’ by, walkin’ easy
    Now I’m no sinner but I ain’t no saint
    If it’s happy, you can say I ain’t

    Feelin’ blue, blue, blue, blue, blue
    Feelin’ blue, blue, blue, blue, blue
    Feelin’ blue, blue, blue, blue, blue
    I’m feelin’ blue, I’m feelin’ blue
    I’m feelin’ blue, I’m feelin’ blue
    I’m feelin’ blue, I’m feelin’ blue
    I’m feelin’ blue, I’m feelin’ blu




    Ha Ha, Rockin Maniac!!!
    Revenge is a dish best served cold!!!

    You jogged my memory about a story about my old pop – my 2 sisters and I adored CCR and played their music every single day at home….. he and my maw were into Lawrence Welk a,nd they didn’t really like Creedence. But one evening, we were spinning the Creedence album on our little turn table and having a dance party in our room…..

    Cotton Fields came on and my pop crept into the room and had himself a listen – he was floored! He asked us to play it again, and we were happy to hear it again.
    HE was so impressed by that song, because he knew who wrote it – Huddy Ledbetter. He at the time wasn’t completely convinced about Creedence, but Who’ll Stop the Rain was his favorite song, and he was blown away by Proud Mary. My old man KNEW; — he just KNEW that Stephen Foster must have written PM and somehow, Creedence got a hold of it…but my older sister told him the truth, “NO PAPPA!! John Fogerty wrote Proud Mary,” and my pop was pretty closed-minded about everything on the planet,
    but when it came to CCR, he was astounded at their song selections. It really opened his eyes to rock music…he was just amazed….

    He really LOVEd the CCR version of Cotton Fields and he loved to hear it.

    As the years went on, we spun those albums over and over and over and over……my parents secretly LOVED CCR and so did the entire ghetto neighborhood.

    Aww, those were some days back then………….


    Willie & the Poor Boys

    I remember hugging this album cover a time or two – - – - those songs are quite meaningful
    helped me find my way….


    Excellent thoughts there, Mr SKY!!! (AKA: Robert)

    I have never did a comparative analysis of Mardi Gras and HOODOO before.
    But can we really compare the two, since MG was the modified CCR,
    and HOODOO was Fogerty as a solo artist?

    MG John was feelin’ the pain of losing his brother from the band and all the acrimony -
    HOODOO was still a time of healing from the break up of Creedence, and John was dealing
    with legal issues left and right.

    I guess you can say that there was some equilibrium in the comparisons…..
    Both were good albums….I would want both….NOT one over the other.

    So glad and relieved that Fogerty survived and is now thriving.


    Feelin blue cactus



    Hey there, Robert (AKA: Mr Sky)
    Since you have been to at least 200 of John Fogerty’s concerts,
    have you ever seen him perform FEELIN BLUE at any of his shows????

    If anyone saw him do it, you saw it or Miss Hoodoo saw it. Please advise.

    X O


    Feelin blue


    Sometimes a person gets an itch, you can’t be a saint all the time and not scratch it to bits



    RIGHT ON / RIGHT ON / / * R * I * G * H * T *** O * N * !!!!

    I’ve been harolding FEELIN’ BLUE for years and years!!!
    That song has the signature Creedence blues sound and Fogerty’s vocals are CLASSIC FOGERTY!!!!
    Awww AHHHHH eeeeeee!!!!

    You cannot get more CREEDENCY if you tried!!!!

    “If it’s happy, you can say I ain’t!!!”(One of my favorite lyrics penned by Mr Fogerty)


    Revival of Creedence, do you mean?
    I’m an eternal optimist, so you know I always believe in the positives in life.
    YES, I sincerely and with all my heart believe that it CAN HAPPEN!!!
    Oh those Creedence boys….they still have alot of LOVE in their hearts, and I know that
    they can get over it.

    At this point, what do they have to lose?

    What can they stand to gain?
    NOTHING ALSO. . . but it sure would be something FUN for them to do and it would
    be amazing for all of us die-hard, loyal fans…..

    DO WE LOVE THE MUSIC OF CCR??? OMG!!! ( ( ( * Y * E * S * ) ) ) )

    As for WOODSTOCk, I look back at the atrocious traffic jams that led to the concert,
    and I wonder what it took for all those people to get so impatient, that they left their cars ABANDONED on the highways??!!! WOW!!!
    Would YOU leave your car on the highway and walk miles to get to a concert?
    They just up and left their cars!!!! WHO DOES THAT????
    They left their cars there like they didn’t ever plan to get back to them.

    Of course, somebody had to tow all those cars out of the way…what a mess!!!

    Anyhow – yeah – - -JOHN< STU< DOUG<
    c’mon y’all.

    Get back together…it won’t kill anyone to be nice.

    Right on, Michael McCarney!!!
    I like your style.
    IT rings of the TRUTH and it is the TRUTH that shall set us all free.

    John Fogerty’s music which was birthed in the Creedence era has outlasted the cheat, Zantz and it has made Fogerty richer than some kings, which is only fair.
    A person with that level of musical genius deserves to live like a king, but one who is loved by his fans.

    His songs are so legendary, they have achieved a legacy of their own.
    Some of his early songs ascended into the ethers of our planet where they will live forever….some of his later songs are catching up to that earthy air also.

    In the end, everything ever said or ever done is stripped bare…
    bare to the pure essence of basics…

    John’s music will outlast him, the artist himself and it is so great, it will outlive all of us.

    Those songs keep this beautiful earth turning…….X O


    Maybe your tixets are at the WILL CALL window?
    Or maybe you have the option to PRINT THEM off from your email?

    Best of luck to you and please don’t miss the show!!!


    I’m here in So California, in the forgotten beach town of San Clemente.
    We love it that nobody wants to drive so far south so they leave our town alone.
    We have a beautiful beach and pier and nobody really bothers us and we love it that way.

    I’ve loved the music of John Fogerty since his CCR days…I was 9 years old when his music hit the radio waves like a big monster erupting out of the bayou.

    When I first heard Born on the Bayou, I did not know what a bayou was, but I knew that it was something from a remote region that had old growth trees with mosses and tall green grasses, and lots of murky, dark waters.
    When I first heard Proud Mary I thought that some tiny band resurrected an old Stephen Foster song and made it hip, but then I discovered a new-age rocker wrote it on his own.
    I was just so amazed and so was the entire world around me…John Fogerty authored that song, but not without Foster influence.

    Back in the late 60′s, you had to be a force that was something stronger having some kind of dazzlement to break through the hits of the Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, the Doors and everyone else who were clamoring to break through and get heard on the radio.
    Creedence was the dark horse and their dark colors were the frontrunners for me and my kin. Creedence had real credibility.

    I was living in a black ghetto at the time, and my family and I being white – I was outnumbered.
    I got to feel bigotry at its worst, let me tell you. I did my best to avoid confrontations, but sometimes a girl’s gotta punch faces to just walk down the road to school.
    My neighbors would blast GRAPEVINE at every house party they ever had…nobody really understood the voice behind Creedence was that of some white street punk named John Fogerty.
    (I didn’t know John or the other CCR boys were white for quite some time until I saw a picture of them in a book that my sister bought.)

    We lived in a poor town that could not afford pictures of bands…I know that sounds stupid, but it’s true…no pictures made it to our record stores…we just had white paper covers on our 45s.

    Those were racially volatile times and Creedence had a black sound that any band needed to reach the top of the charts…it was so amazing.
    I loved how their music soothed racial tensions and put everyone on equal footing.

    That’s the power behind John’s music…he does things that he doesn’t realize he’s doing…that’s the legacy that he created for himself and his band.

    Hey BRIAN!!! What a great story!!! Thank you for your review!!! I loved hearing about John and his amazing BAND, and everything that went on for those shows! But also the Sergeant Schultz story painted a visual for me that made me giggle!!
    Hogan’s Heroes was a funny show way back when…..

    The reviews that are coming back from this 2014 Tour are all in agreement: Fogerty’s shows continue to be the BEST EVER!!!
    (But nobody can tell us how John Fogerty manages to do it!) HA!

    Going to a Fogerty concert is like seeing the Fountain of Youth materialize before your very eyes; John goes back to those early years in the late 60′s….with all those great CCR/Fogerty tunes comin at cha like a roaring train.
    RIGHT BEFORE OUR EYES ON STAGE, John becomes 23 again, and all of us are magically transported back to an earlier time when we first heard and fell in love with his amazing music.
    (Do I become 9 years old again? I don’t know, but I feel like it in my bones!!!) I have to get up and dance, just like how I did when I was a young, carefree person like that in my youth!!!)

    Who can write such epic songs like, Born on the Bayou, Centerfield, Old Man Down the Road, Keep on Chooglin’, RAMBLE TAMBLE, Pagan Baby, Run Through the Jungle, Travelin Band, Green River, Mystic Highway, Premonition, Feelin’ BLUE, and Proud Mary and on and on?
    WHO writes these incredible songs of our times???
    ** JOHN FOGERTY did it and I think he did it to life us UP!!! **
    Thanks, John!!! Thank you, thank you!!!


    If you’re in the town that John’s touring at, you better get down to the show.
    Oh man….
    Get down, peeps!!!

    ENJOY THE ResT OF the TOUR!!!!
