John Fogerty

May 28, 1945, Berkeley, CA

After Creedence disbanded in 1972, Fogerty's first attempt at making a solo career for himself was only moderately successful. In the mid-1970s he became embroiled in legal battles with Fantasy, Creedence's record label, and an accounting firm that had allegedly mishandled his funds; embittered, he dropped out of the music scene for approximately nine years. In 1985, however, Fogerty resurfaced with a new album, Centerfield - in addition to the smash title-track paean to baseball, it includes the hits The Old Man down the Road and Rock and Roll Girls. ~ Musicianguide: John Fogerty ~ retrieved June 20, 2013 © Musicianguide
