- Tribute to John Fogerty

John Fogerty has created some of the most vital and joyous American music of the last fifty years. His band Creedence Clearwater Revival had hit after hit, many times with two-sided singles both charting, from 1969 to 1971, creating a monumental and mythic American music. Drawing equally from rockabilly, country, and blues — all sounds associated with the South, a region far away from John Fogerty’s native northern California — he developed a distinctive brand of rock & roll and a formidable songbook. After CCR broke up in 1972 there was legal acrimony but eventually Fogerty resumed writing and performing, resulting in more hits and greater recognition for his important role in American roots music.
WMNF has assembled some of the best musicians in Tampa Bay to celebrate John Fogerty’s 75th birthday.
