I love John Fogerty. From Creedence Clearwater Revival to now, he has been a staple in not only the rock world but in the music world as a whole. His music has influenced generations of musicians all over the world. His songs have been covered by hundreds, if not thousands, of artists big and small. He’s been called a genius, and it would seem so. He has a knack for writing hits.
Here’s a double shot of tunes from his awesome 1998 live DVD called Premonition. If you haven’t seen the entire thing, check it out. None of it is bad.
Also, as a side note, the drummer has has here is Kenny Aronoff. I was going to say here that I think he’s probably one of the best drummers in the world, but then I just saw on his site that Rolling Stone Magazine voted him one of the 100 best drummers in the world. So there you go. I love the guy and how he plays. If I just heard his drumming, I’d know it was him. I got to see Fogerty during this tour at our local Riverbend Music Center. During the show they played I Heard It Through The Grapevine and Kenny went on a 5 minute drum solo that was awesome. I was upset when I got the DVD and that song wasn’t on there.
Anyway, happy Friday!
