John Fogerty

Fortunate Son

John Fogerty founded Creedence Clearwater Revival with his late brother Tom, wrote some thoroughly memorable rock songs and then left the band acrimoniously—he wouldn't even perform with his bandmates when Creedence was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1993. We may never know exactly why, but that failure to maintain the revival doesn't mean that we should forget Fogerty's potent playing and plangent purposefulness. The guitarist's solo career has been as noteworthy as his work with Creedence and most humans can hum from “Centerfield” as well they remember tunes like “Born on the Bayou.” Just like his estranged counterparts—Stu Cook and “Cosmo” Clifford (who we interviewed last year)—he's still on the road, playing all the hits, ensemble and solo, as he goes. On Saturday, Sept. 14, the old hoodoo guru himself plays the Santa Fe Opera beginning at 7:30 pm as part of his My 50 Year Trip Tour. Attend this historic all-ages concert for between $70 and $307 (for a VIP package that includes a suave swag bag.) Why get stuck in Lodi when you can watch a bad moon rising instead? I thought so.
