Welcome to 1969. Time travel courtesy of John Fogerty, the heart and soul of one of the most popular bands — albeit briefly — of that era, Creedence Clearwater Revival.
Even though they came from California, CCR parlayed Southern rock songs about bayous and the Big Muddy into record sales that now top 26 million. In 1969 they had three top 10 albums — Bayou Country, Green River and Willie and the Poor Boys — and four hit singles.
Sunday night at a sold-out Riverside Theater, John Fogerty seemed to be living in the past.
The former singer, songwriter and lead guitarist for Creedence Clearwater Revival is focusing on 1969 on his current tour, when Creedence broke out with a whopping three hit albums, before imploding from band member disputes just three years later.
