John Fogerty is gearing up for his next string of dates, which kicks off on Friday (September 24th) at Napa, California's Oxbow River Stage.
Fogerty has a trio of new stops just added to the itinerary — November 14th at Washington, D.C.'s The Anthem; November 16th at Durham, North Carolina's Durham Performing Arts Center; and November 17th at Macon, Georgia's Macon City Auditorium.
With over 50 years worth of classics that have become embodiments of post-war American culture, we asked John Fogerty how he comes to terms with writing the songs we all live by: “Well, I'm very proud of that — and I'm obviously the songwriter — and when you're able to create something from nothing it's very special, it's also quite mystical. Whenever I start up again and start writing, I always have to go through this same process and it's frustrating and anxiety-ridden. Meaning, when you try and start to write then the first stuff you do is really crap. And then you do some more stuff — and it's really crap. But you gotta to keep sitting down as if you've have a day job at this every day and you're doing this job, which is writing songs, for days and days and days — sometimes months.”
