It’s a tribute to his talent that when John Fogerty was writing those early “swamp rock” classics like “Proud Mary” with CCR, he had yet to travel to the South; they were written in El Cerrito, CA. Rockaeology at tells how John wrote “Proud Mary”; it was his ecstatic reaction to receiving an honorable discharge from the Army Reserve that started the lyrics flowing. When he first came up with the title, “Mary” was to be the maid of a rich household. “Rollin’ on the river” was inspired by the paddle wheelers in an old Will Rogers movie.

I wonder if the person(?) above ever gave an unsarcastic complement in his life. This site offers more good than bad reporting.

johnfogerty is admired all over the world-let it be known,the fans stuck by him in his difficult time from the 70s- to now-and his comeback—we all love his music—let it also be known—though he led the ccr band-the sound these days lacks that very ccr band sound-it be great if he patched up differences between himself and doug & stu-and play the real original tracks with the real ccr members—thats the only thing to do in completing johns life of music-he deprives us all-simon

I’d pay almost anything to see a CCR reunion, but I don’t think it’ll happen soon. I’ve met Doug and Stu and spoke with Doug at length once, and I can say they are both great, very appreciative of the fans, and pretty much in a live and let live mode at that time. I never got that sense about Fogerty, but I never met him either, so who knows. In the end it’s all about the magnificent music anyway.
