Publisher's Summary

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.

Most boring book I ever listened to

This guy is a whiner.... And it goes in and on and on and on. He is the " nice guy", it's everyone else that's wrong. Also I don't give a care about every elementary teachers name and what you had for lunch when you where 6 years old. Skip this one and save your money.

A great story of never giving up on what you love

Great but sad story of betrayal of people you thought you can trust from family to friends. Sad to see such a great artist kept down by greedy people. I thought the story was honest and heartfelt. I love that he read it himself.
