John Fogerty To Discuss Memoir At Los Angeles & New York Appearances

An exclusive intimate evening with singer and songwriter John  Fogerty will take place on Monday, October 12th at LA’s famed Troubadour in West Hollywood. Tickets are on sale now here.   

Celebrating the October 6th release of his memoir, Fortunate Son: My Life, My Music, Fogerty will be joined by longtime friend George Thorogood.

Billed as “An Evening In Conversation with John Fogerty” the event will feature an intimate Q&A session with Thorogood chatting with Fogerty about his life and the events detailed in the memoir.

“I spent many, many hours reflecting and writing about the details of my life, from childhood dreams, the passion behind my music, all leading up to my life today,” says Fogerty. “ I am very excited to have my fans read and share in my story.  It hasn’t been easy, but where it leads certainly has been worth it all.”

Creedence Clearwater Revival was one of the most important and beloved bands in the history of Rock ‘n Roll, and the memoir tells a story that will keep music lovers and avid readers captivated. Fogerty wrote, sang, and produced the iconic classics "Born on the Bayou," "Proud Mary," "Bad Moon Rising," and so many more.

In the book, he reveals how he brought CCR to the top of the charts and how, one year later, the band was falling apart. The music of CCR, however, has endured for decades despite the series of personal and legal issues.

Fortunate Son takes readers from Fogerty’s Northern California roots, through Creedence's success, his retreat from music and public life, to his hard-won revival as a solo artist who finally, through it all, found love.
