Congrats to you, Hoodoo BOB!!!
I have found (after seeing John Fogerty and BAND! perform in concert) that there are really no bad seats anywhere that he plays.
As long as you’re at a show, you’re doing your civic duty for promoting peace domestically and internationally.
ENJOY the show and please be a friend and come on back here and post a little review for all us hungry fans who can’t make a show this time around.
No detail is too small, ya know?

No, Miss Hoodoo!!!
That is the sky blue dress that Julie Fogerty wore when she accompanied John- when he won his Grammy Award!!!
This was in 1998 I think – if my memory serves me right.
He won the GRAMMY for best rock album (Blue Moon Swamp)
They also have on display her matching sky blue chiffon scarf and her sparkly rhinestone shoes!
They looked like they were a US size 6 – which is quite the tiny foot!!!
They had a picture of the happy couple as they were seated in the audience, and then I could see that the pretty diamond broach that Julie had on her pretty blue dress was not included in the exhibit.
This leads me to believe that the diamond broach is quite pricey and a sentimental favorite of Julies and I don’t blame her for not including it.
The dress itself has many fine cuts sewn into it for perfect fitting. There are many darts that all precisely meet in the middle of the bodice of the dress.
The skirt part of the dress is cut in such a manner as to flow gently with movement or wind.
I used to sew and this sort of tailoring is of the highest end.
Some say that this shade of blue is the shade of Muses.
Very fitting , wouldn’t you say?
That dress did not come off the rack of any fine department store. I shop all the time at Nordie’s and high end stores, and I can tell that this blue dress is a couture sort of fine elegant dressing.
It was custom sewn for the lady, and for no small fee.
Julie no doubt had to undergo multiple fittings before the big night to get it just perfect.
It is possibly the most perfect-fitting gown that she owns!
(or maybe she’s got a whole closet full at this point!) Lucky her!
Isn’t she worth it? YES YES YES!!! INDEED!!!!
Us gals LOVE talking about dresses, shoes and make-up and fashion.
It was incredible to have that be a part of John Fogerty’s exhibit, but then again,
if his wife JULIE was not included in the exhibit, then I doubt that John would even have
allowed them to do anything.
XO XO XO
FUN EXHIBIT!!! YA GOTTA SEE IT, FRIENDS!!!!
I’ll try to find more photos for our European friends who really can’t just jump on an international
flight for each thing out west here.October 12, 2013 at 3:41 pm #1787
WOW, DAN!!! You are on a roll – a Fogerty/Creedence roll!!!
Thank you so much for writing us a nice review of the 2 shows that you’ve been so lucky to be a part of!
And also I feel so happy that John is still selling them out!!!
That’s what you get when you put on quality rock concerts with legendary songs attended by legions of loyal and new fans!!! WOW!!! FABULOUS!!!! XO X O XOOctober 9, 2013 at 9:55 pm #1748
You are such a lucky man, DAN!!! WOW!!! INCREDIBLE!!!! HA HA HA HA!!!!
On a coincidental note, I lost my brand new black and grey sweater that I didn’t even get to wear even once – on that fateful night!!!
I brought it in with me to the GRAMMY MUSEUM, but it was too warm for a sweater, so I just hung it over my purse. I was SO CAREFUL to not let it drop off my purse the entire time, but I must have lost it during the last walk over to my car in the parking garage!!!! DRAT!!!!
I didn’t go back…naw…..I was all the way home at the beach when I realized it was lost.
I sent up a frantic prayer to Saint Anthony, (Patron saint of lost items and lost souls) but he must have been too busy helping other people find their lost items.
Aw well……thanks for the fun story, Dan!!!!October 7, 2013 at 8:23 pm #1737
John hand wrote all those wonderful hit songs years ago. (Hypergraphia?)
Dan wondered if he ever tries to compose new music on WORD?
High tech having some influence (vs. no influence whatsoever?) over the master – Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, www.
I love Getty Images. Those guys go EVERYWHERE!!!! X O X O X OOctober 7, 2013 at 8:17 pm #1736
John looks amazing, doesn’t he?
His entire being was strong – he is a happy man who has
achieved the pinnacle of self-actualization.
If he were to go back and do it all over again – would he do it the same way?

I love that show, Johnnie!
I watch it pretty regularly, I’m crushing on DeNoso. He gets cuter every week!
I also love watching NCIS LA that follows the show.
I like the cute blond man – they’re both very watchable “Mind candy” sort of shows, and I enjoy them after a long day at work.September 23, 2013 at 6:53 pm #1639

Come to think of it, that WOULD be a great album to hear played LIVE!!!September 23, 2013 at 6:48 pm #1638
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.
