Beale Street Music Festival: Saturday Band Guide

Beale Street Music Festival: Saturday Band Guide

10:15 p.m. John Fogerty: One of the most distinctive songwriting and singing voices in all of rock and roll, John Fogerty is a California native who has forged a spectacular body of work plumbing the sounds and imagery of the American South.

Fogerty, his brother Tom, and Doug Clifford and Stu Cook formed their first band in high school. By the late 1960s, after Forgery did a stint in the military, the band became Creedence Clearwater Revival, one of the era’s biggest acts, with nine Top 10 singles in just four years together. The band broke up acrimoniously in 1972, and Fogerty embarked on a successful solo career.

CCR was inducted into the Rock-and-Roll Hall of Fame in 1993. Fogerty’s most recent record is 2013’s Wrote a Song for Everyone, which teams him with a host of music superstars covering his own CCR material.
