DAN! You are da MAN!
Thank you for writing your story here, and you do have such a flair for writing good tales!!! I can just picture seeing John’s name lit up in those ultra-fancy VEGAS style lights…the image burns very brightly in my mind….I’m so glad that you & Carol and the other died-in-the-cotton fans made it out to VEGAS. ++++ Your COVE sounds just magical; I am so happy for you and Carol and the fam.
One thing that I learned from getting to know you Dan is that you love it when others enjoy the magic and majesty of John Fogerty’s music. I have learned to take on that sort of appreciation myself. There is nothing that makes me happier than to witness the joy in the faces of others when we’re all at a concert and John is the main attraction.
We almost never had any of this fun…..
we came awful close to losing John forever, but isn’t it nice when goodness overcomes bad times?
UH HUH!!! YES!!!
What is it about those old songs of Johns (and also his newer songs) that bring so much joy to us fans?
Fogerty is that rare caliber of songwriter that we all wish we were ourselves.
He is able to pick a thought, find a melody and then marry the two in a timeless, beautiful song.
A person hears the song once, and that’s enough to HOOK THEM FOR LIFE!!!!
John will always find legions of fans who adore his music.
I am happy that his family also follows him everywhere that he goes and that his sons both play guitar with huge capabilities. It’s in their blood – it’s in their Fogerty DNA to play music and to keep rowdy happiness alive in this world.
Thank you for circling around and writing more details about John Fogerty’s LAS VEGAS show and I’m glad to hear that everything is coming up roses for you and your wonderful family.
Love and hugs to you, from my little clan…..
* PEACE / LOVE / & CREEDENCE! *October 26, 2014 at 9:28 am #3752
What songs do you think John will perform?
Fortunate Son (for sure!)
Run Through the Jungle ( I HOPE!)
Maybe no selection from his REVIVAL album, har har har!October 26, 2014 at 9:27 am #3751
This is really exciting news! The music of John Fogerty will be an inspiration to all who attend, those lucky, lucky souls!!!October 23, 2014 at 9:14 pm #3718
Hey all….got a set list?
TELL US SOME MORE OF THE FUN SHOW, wont’ you?October 10, 2014 at 9:32 pm #3686
This one is exceptional…again, I love how artists can capture the essence of powerful emotions as they paint someone…this painting is very excellent and I love the message contained within…..October 10, 2014 at 9:25 pm #3685
This sketch is quite funny!
What was the artist trying to say?
It’s still an honor to be the subject of art – even if the artwork is a bit cartoonish.
It’s still pretty cool to look at.October 10, 2014 at 9:22 pm #3684
Cartoons are artwork too. This one is quite funny regarding the prolific writing abilities of John Fogerty.
GOTTA LOVE DA CARTOONZ!!!!October 10, 2014 at 9:16 pm #3683
Best of luck to you Erick, and you can always give it a try but I’m not saying a thing about it.
I’m sure many layers of people would have to inspect your letter before John sees it, but you never know.
Perhaps it’s best to keep a positive attitude about life and lower your expectations.
I myself set my expectations very very low.
I wake up in the morning and I want to do good for someone or everyone. If anybody thinks to thank me, that’s more than I expected.
Therefore, whatever I get, I am grateful for.
But if I get a kick in the rear end, then I’m not very grateful, you know?
Have a blessed day!!!October 10, 2014 at 9:12 pm #3682
Ohhhh, that CREEDENCE painting is really * a * w * e * inspiring!!!
Faces are sooo challenging to paint! I took a year of painting classes at night school at a local college in order to develop that skill of capturing emotions.
Nothing says more about emotions than a face.
I can see that the artist here had alot of shading and it’s likely they practiced sketching their composition many times over before they committed it to canvas.
It looks like acrylics on wood to me…..wow!!!
I LOVE IT!!! But all the Creedence bandmates look a bit angry….October 7, 2014 at 3:53 pm #3668
WHOA! Here’s quite the surprise!!!
It looks like the artist painted John on a wooden canvas with oils…. NICE WORK!!!October 7, 2014 at 9:02 am #3667
KEV, I think that bringing your 4 year old son to one of John’s shows is an excellent idea! But you have to plan on how to keep his little eardrums from being damaged by the high decibel level.
Ear muffs that are designed to protect ears from loud noises are in order.
You have to dampen the decibel level and as you know, John plays really, really LOUD!!!
Also, plan on sitting towards the back of the venue.
With a little bit of advanced planning on ear protection, I’m sure it would be a great experience.
What does his mother say about it? Be sure she’s agreeable, or it’s a no go.
HAVE FUN!!!!!October 4, 2014 at 9:22 pm #3663
Do you mean this CHRONICLE Album cover???
YEAH * * * * It’s cool!!!!October 4, 2014 at 9:19 pm #3662
Hey, whatta challenge you pose here, Dan…. > > > >
For all us died in the cotton Creedence fans….do we remember our first spins????
I am trying hard – squeezing my brains to try and remember the first time I spun the Willie album.
But the first time I spun ANY CREEDENCE album…it was just magical!!!’
I kept asking, “Did John Fogerty write all those songs? ALL THE SONGS”
And my older sister would shout at me, “YES!!!” smackin me on the arm for a loud sounding SLAP!!!
Of course, a fight would ensue but that’s kids bein’ kids!!!
I never met anybody with such a strong work ethic as the young John Fogerty, ya know?
