It can’t be easy to get people excited about your fundraiser year after year, especially when it takes place on a Saturday night. And we certainly were feeling some fatigue last month by the time we received the invitation for the Michael J. Fox Foundation’s annual A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Cure Parkinson’s benefit, which took place this weekend in the ballroom of the Waldorf-Astoria.
John Varvatos was honored last night at the 18th annual Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation benefit dinner and auction at Cipriani Wall Street. The "Collaborating for a Cure" event had a "Rock Out!" theme, with special musical guest John Fogerty and his band more than living up to it in a 90-minute set full of his classic Creedence Clearwater Revival and solo hits that kept attendees who had to get up in the morning on their feet until midnight
“The Voice” season 9 has officially wrapped the Blind Auditions, which then of course is going to bring you to the next stage in the Battle Rounds.

I spoke to John Fogerty, lead guitarist for the band Creedence Clearwater Revival, about how his upbringing in Berkeley contributed to his long term success, how the business of music has changed since he started, how he was able to recruit a strong team (band), what he learned as a solo artist and his best tips to today’s musicians.
John Fogerty had to be talked into writing his revealing new memoir -- Fortunate Son: My LIfe, My Music, which publishes on Tuesday.
"The push, or the incentive, really came from my wife (and manager) Julie," Fogerty tells Billboard. "I don't know that I would've kept at it had it been only my idea. The process was certainly a lot harder than I ever imagined...."
John Fogerty is as close as the U.S. gets to roll and roll royalty. With both his band, Creedence Clearwater Revival, and as a solo act, Fogerty has singlehandedly provided the soundtrack to people’s lives for nearly 50 years.
John Fogerty has become the latest veteran music star to line up a Las Vegas residency.
