    One of the funnest and most amazing concert nights I’ll always remember is when John played at the Hollywood Bowl with John Mellencamp. Most of the people entered the joint knowing full well who Mellencamp was, and all of his song catalog.
    John did such a spellbinding set that night that totally turned the channel to his favor: He played Bootleg and Keep on Chooglin and Ramble Tamble and Old Man Down the Road and alot of his major hits,
    and after the show, a bunch of young fans in their twenties were chattering up about how great this new guy Fogerty was!
    They had NEVER heard all those classic Creedence songs before, and they thought they were hearing them for the first time and they were totally BLOWN AWaY!!!!

    It was quite amazing to hear their innocent commentary – they were so charged up and happy that they came in to see Mellencamp, and instead were blown away by this 60′s rock act; who has been chooglin’ the backwoods swamps all these years.

    Back in the day when Creedence was king, my mom and pop loved some of the CCR tunes; at first they didn’t appreciate it, but when we spun, “Who’ll Stop the Rain” on our little turntable, they always made us pick up the needle and play it over again and over again.

    Awww…weren’t those the days, huh people?
    Some of us remember those days as if they were just yesterday, but those were some rough and tumble times that only a Creedence song or two could remedy.

    OH WOW!!! I can’t send the dang email to y’all!!! DRAT!!! SHOOT!!!
    * SIGH * It’s asking me questions that I clearly do not understand and it won’t let me send….
    Aww well…..I’ll work on it a bit later.


    Are you talking about the GRAMMY MUSEUM OPENING NIGHT with JOHN FOGERTY?
    It is being held on Thursday, September 26th 2013 in the Clive Davis Room.
    8:00pm to 10:00pm.

    BOY – it’s already solid sold-out!!! I didn’t know about it until today and it looks like
    there’s not a spare seat to be had!!!

    WHOMEVER got a ticket to go, please come back here and write about it for us fans.
    I’d sure love to hear all about how it went.

    Thank you.


    Hey Stalker,

    Isn’t it fun to stalk people? (Oh, noo I didn’t just ask that question.)

    But I like your question.
    I don’t think that John should borrow one of his song titles for the title of his memoirs.
    I wish he’s invent something that is reflective of his musical career.

    Perhaps the title is hidden in the song genesis of Mystic Highway?
    John composed so much of his song writing journey in that song.

    I wonder what he’ll come up with? Can’t wait to read it!!! X O X O X O


    Excuse me, Johnnie but did you just mistaken me for some high-tech, whiz-kid sort of person?

    I am Mz Low-Tech, if you want to know the truth.

    Thank you.


    What if you’re not on FB?

    Some of my students are so hooked on Facebook that they call it “Facecrack”

    I thought that was sort of funny,….


    GOSH – I’m late to the party once again!
    I just read that the GRAMMY EVENT is SOLID SOLD-OUT!

    I would have LOVED to go, but now it’s too late….huh…..


    I’m going to sneak in – if you wanna say howdy,
    just look back against the back wall.

    That’ll be ME with my right leg bent, leanin’ against the wall inbetween songs.

    You know that the whole time I’m going to be DANCIN’!!!!! UP A STORM!!!!

    I’m gonna be incognito that night – - – - I want the back row.
    - yeah -
    THE BACK ROW is where I want to be that night. It’s all SO INCREDIBLY AWESOME to
    be at a JOHN FOGERTY CONCERT!!!!!!

    HOpe I’m not late!!!! Ch ch ch ch ch


    MUMFORD and SONS!!!! Well, RIGHT ON!!!
    I love it when those guys get down on some banjo!!!!
    They can sure PICK!!!! Go, John and GO MUMFORDS!!!!!!! X O


    HA HAAAAAAAAAA!!!! Sam BERDOO, how do you DO???
    You win the most AWESOME DUDE on the FORUM award, how’s that for a prize that can’t be beat???

    There is no “prize” as far as material gain involved, but spiritually, the prize you won
    is only meaningful to the heart!!!

    God bless!!!! X O


    Nobody’s perfect – I left out the most muscularly challenging song out in my haste.
    Haste makes waste, y’all!!!

    What HUGE hit did I miss?

    tell it to me – X O


    COSMO’s FACTORY LIVE??? !!!! RIGHT ON)))))!!!!! HERE WE COME, NOKIA – make room for us!!!!
    Will John OPEN with RAMBLE TAMBLE??? OMG!!!! FANTASTIC!!!!

    I never thought I’d see the day when John Fogerty and BAND! opens with that rowdy road song, RAMBLE TAMBLE – and it’s a rock symphony. GOSH – I gotta be there when it happens!!!

    Now (from memory) it’s got to be…
    RT, BYAM, TB, OD, LOMBD, RTTJ, HA, UATB, (forgot) WSTR, G!!!!, LAICSTL

    GOSH!!!!!!!! IT’s gonna ROCK!!!!! I have never seen John do an album all the way through, but it’s funny because when Creedence was at the top of the heap in the 60′s, I was only 9 or 10 years old and there was NO WAY I was ever going to see them in concert,
    but I always thought that’s how they did their concerts. You know – played the albums in order!!!

    I was just a dumb kid back then, but smart enough to figure out that CREEDENCE was the best band in the world for all time!!!! X O X O X O


    Now Dear Giants Dave.
    Is Hoodoo a complete album or is there a song in there that was left unfinished?
    (You know it was a complete album, and alot of us fans LOVE IT TO PIECES!)

    Blue Ridge Rangers DO INDEED have a BRR part II. Not from 1974, but much more recently. So go ahead and add a couple more scoops of sugar into my iced tea!

    Lastly, The Comin Down the Road Doc is John’s memoirs, which is what this topic is discussing. It is said to be released sometime in 2014. John’ll finish it, Giants Dave!!!

    *** KEEP DA FAITH!!! ***


    * * * WOW!!! * * *
    That is AWESOME!!! I didn’t know there even was a Grammy Museum here in LA!!!
    So, I did some investigation;
    The GRAMMY Museum is located at 800 W. Olympic Blvd., Los Angeles, California (corner of Olympic Boulevard and Figueroa Street), in the L.A. LIVE district. The Museum entrance is located on Figueroa Street.
    Gen admission is $12.50
    It’s just a short walk from the NOKIA and STAPLES CENTER!!!
    It’s in the heart of LA, baby!!!

    I am in the midst of moving right now, my fellow Creedence Fans!!! I have been SUPER BUSY, but I hope that I will find the time to steal away and see this wonderful exhibit!!!

    THIS IS WHY I LOVE LA!!!! )))))


    If there is something that John Fogerty is; he’s a workin’ man!
    You know once he commits his mind to a project – he starts it, and he has to see it through to the end. All the way to the sweet, sweet end!!! X O X O

    I am so happy that John decided to do the autobio.
    I only hope that he brings us back to his childhood, when he first heard Stephen Foster and the wonderful music that he wrote.
    Then he can launch into the band coming together and their first 10 years together – then the years of stratospheric success that landed them in the highest order of rock bands worldwide.

    He can talk about the troubles too and how he managed to make it – day by day.
    He can share his coping mechanisms with us, his bald anger and frustrations that made his life seem completely shattered and hopeless.
    There was a (Brief) time when it seemed everyone abandoned John Fogerty. HOW DID HE HOLD IT TOGETHER?
    Most of us would fall apart….

    I hope that John also remembers that he is the professor to allot of other musicians who have looked up to him for pure inspiration and song genesis throughout the years.
    I hope he spends an entire chapter or two on HOW DOES HE WRITE THOSE INCREDIBLE SONGS??
    If he would focus on his own song genesis, that would place this book in the upper shelf (but still accessible to the most eager) for those who wish to understand and implement his song writing strategies, song writing inspirations, what motivates him to grind it out in the studio to finish the song to be released to the world and so on.
    The song writing process of John Fogerty are words that may be read in black & white, but are GOLDEN, solid GOLDEN to those of us who cherished his songs.

    What would also be of utmost interest to all the fans is why John has stuck it out all these years.
    He had it rough, this is true, but he survived in King’s fashion.
    We are indeed the LUCKY of the LUCKIEST that John is still touring and putting on his fantastic concerts!

    I also hope that John includes some of his own artwork in the book -besides his wonderful music. Like does he paint or sketch from time to time?
    Most musicians feel that need to create on canvas, or metalworks or glass – I hope John has a big measure of printed artwork in his book. I would be interested to know who his favorite artists are, for example: does John find inspiration in the masters such as Van Gogh, Monet, DaVinci?

    Also his musical influences would be appreciated to be written down in word.
    I would love to see all of his songs in sheet music included in the book. It’s important, people!!!!

    Future generations will read about John Fogerty, they will search for this book – and no detail is too small, too medium or too large to help us to know & understand the master.

    I am looking forward to reading this fine book when it is released!!!! GOD BLESS!!!
