    Legendary dinner meeting

    OMG!!!

    I’ve never seen this photo before, but legend has it that at this Mexican Food place, John and the Creedence boys held their legendary discussion (argument) regarding the release of PROUD MARY and how the track should be cut…..wow. I know it’s not artwork, but the memory of it is part of the Creedence Legacy.

    WOw.

    Sketchy sketch of Creedence

    This one is a little bit warped up…maybe it was left out in the rain….
    but it’s still very cool.

    I might have named it, “A Sketchy Sketch of Creedence.” NIiiice!!!

    Sasquatch

    At first, I thought this post said, “SASQUATCH.”
    I was wondering if you ever spotted this creature – he is said to live somewhere in the dense Redwood Forrest, up in Northern California. He is never seen any more, due to the dense blanket of fog that tends to obscure his whereabouts.
    He is known to emit quite a strong body odor and dogs go berserk when they catch a whiff of his smell. The locals up in Humboldt claim that they’ve seen Bigfoot….they don’t go lookin’ for him. They give him a wide berth of space….he ain’t hurtin’ no one.

    Anyhow – Have a wonderful time at John’s Show when you go!!!

    Ok Bailey – I like your style and support your bid for a full-length movie featuring John’s life, but the book should come first.
    YEAH!!!

    The BOOK! THE BOOK!! THE BOOK!!!! Ooooh, Y E A H H H H H H H H h h h h h h !!!!

    You can’t have a movie without a book…need a screenplay…..who is going to play John Fogerty?
    Who would be cast as Julie Fogerty? WOW!!!!

    There’s a bunch of stuff to get done…good job, BL!!!

    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.

    FEELIN’ BLUE LYRICS – CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL

    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.
