When I was 15 I was introduced to CCR. I was a "boy from the bush" in country NSW Australia and had just arrived at a school in Sydney.
My new mate Jimmy played me Cosmos Factory and I fell in love with this talented band, especially John Fogerty.
I grew my hair just like him, I took up guitar and learned all their songs as best I could. I think John is not only a terrific songwriter, producer, arranger, muso and singer, he is also a man of great integrity. I know he has a rich soul and he digs deep into this for inspiration and guidance.
I just LOVE Cajun Music, especially the way John presents it in his own definite style. Thank you John Fogerty.

It was 1969, and i was nine years . john fogerty's voice wailed out from my new 45 single "Down on the Corner". My older brother and I were in heaven dancing around the room with towels over our heads like long hair, and singing into fists as if holding microphones. (air microphones) We'd flip it over and Fortunate Son would send us reeling around the room. The quality of sound our old Phillips record player kicked out wasn't exactly modern technology, but it was enough to instill a unique rythmic style in my head that would be forever engrained. The music of John Fogerty and CCR has been the single most inspiring influence in my rythm guitar playing and drumming. John Fogerty's dynamic voice, in my poinion, is the most powerful and distinguished in all of music. God bless him , and may his brother rest in peace. Some day he , Stu and Doug will play for us again. martin

John Fogerty's voice and guitar playing are phenomenal. I'd heard early rock and roll because my dad listened to it (he had a 78 of Link Wray's "Rumble" which got him into trouble with his landlady because he played it too loud: used to sit the record player up in the open window, that sort of thing! Drove my mother wild, too, with his John Lee Hooker and Jimmy Reed collections!) Back to Fogerty: He and Creedence kept me from going crazy down here in the Bayou City (Houston) during '68 when we first moved here: been here 35 years and still can't say that I love it. It's a horrid place in the summer, but Fogerty's music makes it bearable. It's as if he spent some time here in this mildewed stinkhole of freeways and refineries. I've seen three CCR concerts here and one solo performance by him. Lot's of nightmares here: Graveyard Train, Porterville, and Walk on the Water sum up the experience of living in this place. Talk about "haints" and "hoodoo". Ain' t much weirder than this unless you go to New Orleans. How on earth a Bay Area boy picked up on the atmosphere of doom and gloom that permeates this swamp, I'll never know, but he's right on the money!
