John Fogerty - lead vocals, guitar
Fogerty is a quintuple threat: songwriter, singer, lead guitarist, arranger and producer. Centerfield, which Fogerty produced and for which he played every instrument, is as American as apple pie and, well, baseball. Eagerly anticipated and long-awaited, Centerfield was Fogerty's second album since his 1973 solo debut, The Blue Ridge Rangers, which followed his exit from Creedence Clearwater Revival.
With CCR, Fogerty was responsible for an entire songbook of hits that have become modern standards, from "Proud Mary," "Bad Moon Rising" and "Who'll Stop The Rain" to "Lookin' Out My Back Door," "Down On The Corner," "Up Around The Bend" and "Have You Ever Seen The Rain?" Centerfield proved to be a triumphant comeback.
Embracing pop, rock and his deep roots in country, the double platinum disc charted both #1 Pop and #7 Country, and spun off four hits: Top 10 Pop "The Old Man Down The Road" (also #1 Rock), Top 20 Pop "Rock And Roll Girls" (also #5 Rock), Top 40 Country "Big Train (From Memphis)" and a rockabilly salute to Elvis-- Top 5 Rock "Centerfield."
