The long-awaited memoir from John Fogerty, the legendary singer-songwriter and creative force behind Creedence Clearwater Revival.
Creedence Clearwater Revival is one of the most important and beloved bands in the history of rock, and John Fogerty wrote, sang, and produced their instantly recognizable classics: "Proud Mary", "Bad Moon Rising", "Born on the Bayou", and more. Now he reveals how he brought CCR to number one in the world, eclipsing even the Beatles in 1969. By the next year, though, Creedence was falling apart; their amazing, enduring success exploded and faded in just a few short years.
Fortunate Son takes listeners from Fogerty's Northern California roots through Creedence's success and the retreat from music and public life to his hard-won revival as a solo artist who finally found love.

Dry story, love the guy!
No. John Fogerty is a phenomenal musician and songwriter. But his reading of the book is just monotone and dry.
All of the insights of what really happened through his life and how things went.
A professional narrator. Fogerty doesn't help the story, he gives very little inflections or expressive tones.
No extreme reaction. It was the simple story of his life.
I have to again emphasize that the reading of the story was too bland. I stopped paying attention after a while.
- Michael R. Young
Most boring book I ever listened to
