WOW JASON!!! What a cool review!!! I know what you mean, I was smitten with the MUSIC of CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL when I was all of 9 years old!!!
I just felt it deep in my heart that I would love all those songs for the rest of my life…and I was right…nothing is better than a CCR/Fogerty song!!!
NOTHING can TOUCH IT!!!!
How did I ever know that I would become a lifelong fan of CCR – being so young and not too bothered by the Beatles, or the Supremes or James Brown? They were world class musicians and artists, I would never knock those great people, but NOBODY came close to moving me the way that CREEDENCE did!!!
I’m so happy that you have something STRONG to share with and bond with – with your little daughter!
The power of MUSIC is something special to share.
I have seen John Fogerty and BAND perform about 25 times…maybe 30 times by now…I’ve lost track of them all, but if he’s even somehow a distance away from my home, I make the pilgrimage to see him again!!! ( I live in Southern California.)
His music has a special and mysterious sort of Bayou power, that can lift a person up, up, UP off the ground and take you from the dirt up to the heavens.
I don’t know how he did it, or how in the world he still conjures it up, but Fogerty is a master – he was born dirt poor – he didn’t have any connections in the business at all, but he believed in the power of his own music – and look at the wonderful world he’s created as a result of that.
I thank you again, Jason for your compelling story.
TELL US MORE, if you like…we’re here, drinking it all in like a person who’s been crossing over a dry and barren desert…we are thirsting for any details in regards to John’s shows.
You have to get your daughter some guitar lessons and CCR/Fogerty sheet music.
I have found that over the years, I like to sit in the back – not the front – of the venues that John plays in.
Maybe the middle section is okay too….I can hear the music much better and it blends much better with that sound compression thing that happens with artificially LOUD amplification.
My poor ears have been blown out a time or two, so I also pack a pair of high=tech ear plugs to preserve my intricate hearing.
Of course I always wear my dancing shoes!!! I’m sorry for the view that I blocked from all those great Creedence fans, but I CANNot SIT DURING THE MOST AWESOME HOUSE PARTIES THAT FOGERTY PLAYS!!!
ANYHOW – have a peaceful night!!! X OJuly 25, 2014 at 9:34 am #3413
LOVED that little scene from the show….the new version of LONG AS I CAN SEE THE LIGHT
is very tasty!!! YUM and more YUM!!!
Thanks, GiantsDAVE!!! X OJuly 23, 2014 at 10:37 pm #3410
GOSH – what would it be like to see a PRIVATE SHOW at a private house party with John Fogerty and BAND?
I guess the closest I came to it was the handful of times that I saw some closed shows with John on stage…those shows were the coolest!!!July 23, 2014 at 10:34 pm #3409
HahaHA! MIKE! (pABUfAN)
What a great story!!!
I loved reading your funny description of the set list, and I’m so sorry that the crowd was a bit on the dull, lackluster side. Some times that’s how it goes, huh?
They paid their big bucks to get into one of the best house parties on the planet, so I guess they can act any old way that they want…God gave us CHOICE, didn’t HE? Well, I Choose to MOOOVE
whenever I have the good luck to find myself at a Fogerty show…yes, yes, yes indeed!!!
I just don’t understand it one tiny little bit when people act like corpses and don’t get up to dance and wiggle — but I’m such a died in the cotton CREEDENCE FAN, and us old timers still have the funk to get on UP and DANCE during the show, don’t we? HA HA!
Moving to the grooving!!!
WOW - I never saw Kenny smash a cymbal so hard that he fractured it! Glad to hear that the band is so tight, that they recovered in 2 seconds! Kenny is one hard-working drummer man!
I LOVE HIM and his devotion to all things Fogerty/CREEDENCE!!! *** *** *** COOL!!!!
RAMBLE TAMBLE is always my # 1 favorite song to see performed LIVE by Fogerty and BAND. It’s never played the same identical way twice…no no no no no!!! They change it up each and every single time that it hits the stage…..I love the old track on Cosmo’s Factory, and I spin it every couple of days, just to keep my blood from clotting and preventing me from an early death.
RAMBLE TAMBLE SAVES LIVES, as you know!!!
It’s a wonderful musical potion of life and mojo, that’s for sure!!!
Thank you, John Fogerty – for writing it all those many blue moons ago….
PABUFAN — – — -I’m so happy that you were able to get out to a Fogerty show and enjoy it with your wife. That’s what makes marriages strong!!!
Thank you for your excellent review….X O I loved it!!!! X O X O X OJuly 17, 2014 at 9:55 am #3388

You are the truest of the bluest!!! HAVE FUN!!!

I love and adore Dwight Yoakum too.
We used to have a joke about Diet Coke…
We’d say, “Let’s have a Dwight Coke!”
One of my fav songs from Dwight is, “TRY NOT TO LOOK SO PRETTY.”
My gawd…whatta song.
It’s like he was totally emotional about some woman when he sang it…..
The man’s an amazing songwriter and performer.
God bless you, Bruce.
Keep safe out there.
LOVE that cowboy’s long hair….X OJuly 14, 2014 at 10:20 pm #3359

This is a great idea on how to dress for the outdoor concert in the pouring rain!!!
You really cannot bring an umbrella because it blocks the view of other concert goers!!!
BE REALLY CAREFUL, AND DON”T SLIP AND FALL OUT THERE!!!!July 14, 2014 at 9:28 pm #3357
Bospop is a funny name!
Sort of sounds like Bob’s pop when I say it out loud.
Or boss pop!
Or Boz pup!
Would you believe….Boss Paw??? HA HA HA
Have fun dancing in the rain, all you crazy Creedence fans!!!
(I’m totally envious of you!!!)
BE SAFE AT BEE’s POP FESTIVAL!!!!July 14, 2014 at 9:15 pm #3356
Thank you for your nice story!
It’s good to hear that John’s doing great on his tour over in Europe!
Safe travels to all of you.

Please, please — SEND US THE RAINCLOUDS over here to where I live,
in Southern California, won’t you???
IT has been very dry for the past 4 years and we are in an emergency drought situation.
If we don’t get rain next winter, there will be a terrible water shortage and we will all have to
conserve, pay high prices for our water and maybe ration water.
So – to all the excess rainstorms in Italy, I say,
SHIP THE RAIN TO US!!!! WE NEED IT and WE NEED IT BAD!!!!!
I could go outside and ask my neighbors, “Have you ever seen the rain?” and
they would say, “NO! NO I haven’t seen any rain for a long spell around these parts!!!”
SO, stay safe my friends, standing in the rain during one of John’s concerts.
How I would LOVE it if I could steal those rainclouds from you and soak the dry, parched ground
out west here.
PEACE / LOVE / CREEDENCE for Everyone!!!!
