Killer - one of those sounds that seeps out of the earth, naturally.

I don't play them regularly but when I saw John Fogerty a few years ago, it was awe inspiring how many beloved songs he could pull out in a row.

When I was in fourth grade, one kid was allowed to bring one album into play on a Friday afternoon. I remember Brian Smith brought in his brother's copy of Cosmo's Factory - so it must've been 1971 or '72. I thought it was a cool cover and really liked the music. That was my intro to Creedence.

The guy *wrote* Proud Mary. It used to not exist, and then it existed, and he wrangled it into existence and now it's like some kind of Stephen Foster thing. It's not like it's even my favorite song or anything, but it seems like something ancient that just sprang out of the earth on its own.

When I saw him, he opened with Born on the Bayou. When the guitar riff came up out of a bed of crickets and swamp noise I got goosebumps and actually had trouble catching my breath!

I had that same feeling when I saw him... although the opener was "Green River." "Oh WOW this is happening right in front of me!"

He's got a Vegas residency right now... wish I had a second good reason to go to Vegas...

Marginal yes. I really like some of their records — Traveling Band, Lodi, especially Down on the Corner. The more they choogle, the less I like them.

Did you mention the haircuts?

That's all that's important, you know.

And said it very well.
Fortunate Son is, I think, my favourite.

Anybody like Fogerty's Blue Ridge Rangers?

It's fine, but you know what I like better than the Blue Ridge Rangers album?

John Forgerty
from 1975. "Almost Saturday Night" is as good as most Creedence songs. "Rockin' All Over the World" was his last solo hit until the '80s.

Go to the Pinball Hall of Fame during the day. Incredible place to spend five hours. If you dig pinball that is. I imagine you might. Hundreds of games, from the beginning through the peak 60s-80s years, plus the obligatory newer ones, even some one-offs/rarities. All at their original prices, mostly a quarter a play. One weekend, I spent five hours there easy , on both days. Then, Fogerty at night. Then go home.
