The year 1969 is responsible for some of the most iconic, indelible images in American history. Neil Armstrong saluting the red, white and blue on the surface of the moon. Blissed-out counterculture revellers, all wide-eyed, flower crowns and dirty feet, at Woodstock. John and Yoko, dishevelled and in love, during their bed-in for peace. A sea of peaceful Vietnam protesters surrounding the reflecting pool, the Washington Monument touching the sky in the distance.
The year 1969 was also when American rock band Creedence Clearwater Revival released three landmark albums — Bayou Country, Green River and Willy and the Poor Boys — that would establish a young songwriter by the name of John Fogerty as a voice of a generation.
