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.

Such a Great Story

Well if you enjoy Rock n Roll, and are interested in the background story, then you need to read or listen to the story. I have to chuckle in reading the reviews regarding John's delivery. He seems like such a sweet, innocent guy, and yeah he's reading it like a 5th grader, standing in front of class, reading his paper, trying his hardest to get a B, but hey that's him, deal with it. It's kind of charming, but yeah... You may want to read it if that annoys you. The content is the key here. Highly recommended!

An excellent rock n roll odessy

I really enjoyed this book. Very interesting story. I highly recommend it! Just one complaint: a lot of time was spent talking about money & contract issues~anger n bitterness. That's all valid. It colud have taken half of the space it did and conveyed much the same message. Would have prefered to have more impressions on Woodstock, which pedals & technical gear info. and advice, what it is you like about a Maton guitar, etc.
Write another book!! :-)

Interesting story.

Interesting story, great to hear his side of the story. Was a bit difficult to listen to at times,. Love his singing voice, not so much his reading. 😊
