Rocker John Fogerty has been sharing his thoughts about society, politics and life through song for nearly half a century, and come this fall he’ll walk readers through the key points of his life in his autobiography, “Fortunate Son: My Life, My Music,” set for publication Oct. 6.
First as lead singer, songwriter and guitarist for Creedence Clearwater Revival and then through a long (if sporadic) solo career, Fogerty has been one of rock’s most acclaimed figures. In a statement he said, “You’re going to hear where it all started, my passion to become the best musician I could be. You’ll travel down some rough roads, but that road leads to something beautiful. My book won’t be sugar coated. It’s all in there.”
