Please vote to return to collections (Voting Results will appear on Right Sidebar).
Vocalist
    (May 28, 1945- )
    Lead singer for Creedence Clearwater Revival
    Left the band to pursue a solo career (1973)
    Recorded albums 'Blue Ridge Rangers (1973),' 'John Fogerty (1975),' 'Hoodoo (1975),' 'Eye of the Zombie (1986),' 'Centerfield (1986)' 'Blue Moon Swamp (1997)' and 'Deja Vu All Over Again (2004)'
    Most of his songs have political messages.
    He appeared on the 'Vote for Change' tour to mobilize people against George W. Bush (October 2004).
    He assumed nearly all control over Creedence Clearwater Revival, writing nearly all the songs.
    He is hated by his former bandmates from Creedence Clearwater Revival, including his older brother Tom Fogerty.
    He refused reconcile these disputes with his brother, even when he was dying of AIDS.
    He has been known to burn bridges, mocking his former boss Saul Zaentz at Fantasy Records with 'Zanz Can't Dance' and 'Mr. Greed.'
    When Zaentz responded with a lawsuit, he released a revised version of 'Zanz Can't Dance' which changed the lead character's name to Vanz.
    He was sued by Fantasy Records again, after being accused of copying the songwriting style of his Creedence Clearwater Revival days (he won the suit).
    He refused to perform with his former bandmates of Creedence Clearwater Revival at the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame induction ceremony (1993).
    He suffered from a large amount of professional jealousy from his bandmates.
    He was the key figure in the success of Creedence Clearwater Revival, as evident by their poor album 'Mardi Gras' which was sung mostly by other members of the band.
    His music is featured prominently in 'Forrest Gump.'
    He fights for what he believes in.
    He has managed to have a successful solo career beyond his CCR years.
