John Fogerty – Local Celebrity

John Cameron Fogerty is an American musician, singer, and songwriter currently living in Troon North. Fogerty was born on May 28th, 1945 in Berkeley, California, and grew up in El Cerrito, California, one of five sons born to Galen Robert and Edith Lucile Fogerty.

In 1959, while in junior high school, Fogerty formed a cover band with bassist Stu Cook and drummer Doug Clifford called the “Blue Velvets”. The band was inspired by rock and roll pioneers Little Richard and Bo Diddley. Later, Fogerty’s brother Tom joined the group. The band was signed to Fantasy Records in 1964.

Fogerty signed up for the Army in 1966. He served at Fort Bragg, Fort Knox and Fort Lee during Vietnam War. Fogerty was discharged from the Army in July 1967. In the same year, the band changed its name to Creedence Clearwater Revival. The group had nine top-ten singles and eight gold albums between 1968 and 1972, and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1993.

After Creedence Clearwater Revival parted ways in 1972, Fogerty had a successful solo career. He was listed on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of 100 Greatest Guitarists (#40) and the list of 100 Greatest Singers (#72). His songs include “Proud Mary”, “Down on the Corner”, “Centerfield”, “Bad Moon Rising”, “Green River”, and “Fortunate Son”.

Recently, in September 2017, Fogerty signed a new recording contract with BMG Rights Management, which will cover an upcoming album and his solo catalogue.
