Often hailed as one of the best guitarist of all time, recording artist John Fogerty has seen great success both with his ban the Creedence Clearwater Revival and with his own solo career. The rock singer and songwriter may be known for his guitar playing ability but his raspy, energetic voice is also known as being one of the most unique in rock history.

Fogerty continued to release hits into the the 1990s and penned songs like the top ten hit in the 1980’s “The Old Man Down the Road.”
In 1993, Fogerty and his band Creedence Clearwater Revival were inducted into the Rock ad Roll Hall of Fame. It was during this induction ceremony that Fogerty famously refused to play with his former band mates, and instead recruited new drum and bass players as well as Bruce Springsteen and Robbie Robertson to join him on stage in what would be one of his most famous performances to date.
Fogerty had a comeback in 1997 where he issued numerous new songs as well as a compilation CD, a live record and a DVD concert video. He went on to released numerous songs and albums and perform many world-wide tours with artists like John Mellencamp and Willie Nelson, proving he still had the same worldwide appeal.
