As a singer-songwriter and the creative force behind Creedence Clearwater Revival, John Fogerty gave us classics like "Proud Mary," "Bad Moon Rising," "Down on the Corner," and "Born on the Bayou." In 1969, CCR had eclipsed even the Beatles, but by the following year the band was already falling apart. In this "folksy and crusty" memoir (Washington Post), Fogerty takes us along on his life's journey, through the meteoric success of Creedence and "swamp rock," his never-ending battles with former bandmates and Saul Zaentz of Fantasy Records, his marriages, and his revival as a solo artist.
"This isn't just an account of one musician's ups and downs with art and life; Fogerty has created a solid study of popular music over the past 50 years."—Publishers Weekly
