John Fogerty


March 9th, 2005 ~ John Fogerty wasn't born on the bayou, but his music is certainly at home there. A lively visit in Los Angeles with the former Creedence Clearwater Revival guitarist/singer/songwriter in which Fogerty reveals how the group got its name, the musical impact of swamp gas, and how he might be the Stephen Foster of roots rock and roll. Includes music by Elmore James, Terrance Blanchard, Chelo Silva and Marty Robbins.
