As I’ve listened to the radio and read various music publications, both Bob Seger and Robert Plant have suggested that their newest albums might be their last. All of the groups I grew up with–CCR, the Kinks, Who, Allman Bros, etc.–are getting into their 70s. But then you look at Sir Paul McCartney and he puts on a 3 hour plus show at the age of 72. Knowing how much minutiae and detail JF puts into his recordings, I suspect that we are 18-24 months away from any new CD; not to mention that the music industry is changing so quickly that putting out CDs is not the money maker it once was. It will be interesting fo’ sure!

This is one song I would really like to see JF do live, and rerecord with a new group of crack musicians. If I remember correctly, JF mentioned that his next CD might focus more on ‘jam band’ type of music. If so, ‘Feelin’ Blue’ would fit right into the wheelhouse of that particular genre of music.August 26, 2014 at 1:18 pm #3528
Well, what’s done is done. Look to the future….don’t hang on to the past and leave scratch marks.August 22, 2014 at 3:42 am #3517
My wife and I paid about $550 face value for a pair of tickets to see the Rolling Stones in Anaheim, CA. Well worth the price for killer floor seats. An old girlfriend was a good friend of Joe Ely’s and I met him backstage on a number of occasions and we once talked about life on the road. Brutal, and not something that I would find the least bit fun. Mr. Ely talked about booking hotels months in advance, only to find the rooms not available and then having to sleep in the car or van and getting up the next morning to drive hours and hours to the next gig.

How about heading out to Memphis, Tennessee? The Mud Island Ampitheater is right along the shore of the Mississippi River, with Beale Street a short distance away. Come on, home of Elvis, Sun Records, Sam Phillips and ROCK AND ROLL!!!May 12, 2014 at 3:46 am #2978
There is a link to JF and Jazzfest on the homepage.April 30, 2014 at 3:56 pm #2948
LOL! I’ve had numerous CCR/JF dreams….walking into a store and finding a brand new CCR CD and going nuts, etc. I wake up and tell my wife, and she says to me, “Please don’t tell anyone, they’ll think you’re weird.” Too late, people figured that out long ago.April 27, 2014 at 6:53 am #2934
LOL…JF’s work ethic is well known, so if he puts as much effort towards perfection with his book as he does with his music, patience is going to be needed.March 30, 2014 at 1:34 pm #2734
Yep, “Feelin’ Blue” is one of the true undiscovered gems from the CCR catalog. It would sound great live, and if JF is truly heading in the direction of making an album of jam music, if he ever completes the album, and tours in support of it, “Feelin’ Blue”, would be a fine additon to the live set.March 30, 2014 at 1:33 pm #2733

Who is out there stalking Mr. Fogerty while he’s jogging? Kinda scary.March 28, 2014 at 6:48 pm #2722
Come on MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE!! Birthplace of Elvis, home of Sun Records, Beale Street, the roots of rock and roll begin in Memphis!March 27, 2014 at 5:35 am #2693
By the way, VH1 did a documentary on JF/CCR about 15 years ago.March 27, 2014 at 5:34 am #2692
I’m not sure a movie about JF and CCR would be a hit. Groups like the Beatles, the Who and Rush have had longer, and far more consistent careers than JF has had. Also, the Beatles and the Who were groups that had some personal dynamics that made for interesting story telling. I can’t think of a wilder character in rock and roll than Keith Moon (maybe Keith Richards???) The two long layoffs between the Shep LP and Centerfield and EOTZ and BMS kept him out of the music biz for far too long. Now, I would love to see a documentary where JF walks us through how he creates, writes and produces his muisc. That would be a fascinating insight into a legendary songwriter, and far more informative than a bio pic.March 25, 2014 at 1:36 pm #2687
Skip the movie. I’d much rather hear some new music.
