One of the greatest singer songwriters of our time.

For me, this is where art and politics are separate.

I grew up on CCR. From Susie Q to Mardi Gras, there wasn't a dud in the lot. Favourite? All of them....

Yeah me too. I remember listening to them at parties my parents threw. My Mother was a huge fan.

Springsteen commented that John Fogerty is the Hank Williams of our time. CCR certainly has left the world with a legacy.

I agree with him, but I hate Springsteen.

Agreed, I never saw the appeal in the boss either.

Some people find monotone singers that look constipated, appealing.

LOL, Funny.

No one epitomizes the constipated look more than Joe Cocker though.

Springsteen is tremendously talented, but I disliked his 'arena rock' era.

"Arena rock"?

Yeah, the 'Born in the USA' years.

The music wasn't nearly as good as the first few albums, it was typical big arena rock music, not the well crafted stuff that he did before, and after. stuff made to be played loudly over sound systems in an echo-filled arena to 50,000 to 100,000 people. It's not the same.

Good music can be played to a crowd of 25 in a small bar, and sound even better.

The screen door slams, Mary's dress waves
Like a vision she dances across the floor as the radio plays
Roy Orbison singin for the lonely
Hey, that's me, and I want you only
Don't turn me home again, I just can't face myself alone again

That would be the song that put me over the edge.

On my radio, only every single song Brian Adams ever wrote got overplayed more than that song.

Gotchya...

That would be why I really don't like him, he seems to have to force it out in a scream or yell.

It always sounds a little monotone when he does that.

I do like his rendition of "The Ghost of Tom ones" though.

I love the album 'Nebraska', it's a great thing to listen to with a bottle of scotch.

I blame CanCon.

Not this CanCon of course, the other one. Surely they could've found someone else, anyone else to be their poster boy.

I first thought this was a memorium thread.

Is it wrong not to like that guys' music? I mean, really. Do,do,do, lookin' out my back door. A dinosaur Victrola listening to Buck Owens? Gag me with a spoon.

I dig the new stuff the kids are listening to on their walkmans.


Hop in my Chrysler,
it's as big as a whale
and it's about to set sail!
I got me a car, it seats about twenty
So c'mon and bring your jukebox money.


Yay.

There is a video out there on Youtube of a couple of friends of mine singing that during the warm up to the Ellen Degeneres show.

Fogerty is a boring bitter old hack who's voice (such as it was) left him decades ago.

His rendition? He wrote it.

Love John Fogerty. I saw him here at Ottawa Bluesfest in july. I was really impressed at his performance given his age and all. His voice is still in great shape and his hair looks like its been the same since the 60s.

As for Springsteen he's one of my favorites. I agree with the comments about Born in the USA though. Hasnt aged well, bad production. Funny how a lot of people mistake the meaning of the song. My favorites of his would be Darkness on the Edge of Town and Nebraska. I'll go for anyone who has great lyrics.

I saw "CCR" in Elliot Lake a few years back and left very disappointed. Tom was gone (already knew that) there was no John and I really didn't recognize the guy on bass.

I hate it when bands with 1 original member use the name. The Guess Who is another one. I think the drummer and the bass player are the only originals left with them.
