1969 was a pretty great year for John Fogerty, whose band Creedence Clearwater Revival put out not one, not two, but three now-classic albums in that same year (Bayou County, Green River and Willy and the Poor Boys). He'll be celebrating the material from those albums (as well as other favorites from throughout his career) on another leg of his "1969" tour which happens throughout the US from May-August.
The tour includes a NYC show happening on June 24 at Radio City. Tickets for that show are on sale now. All dates are listed below.
John also confirmed an October 6 release date for his upcoming autobiography, Fortunate Son: My Life, My Music, which Little Brown is putting out. "I'm just being brutally honest," he tells Billboard. "I'm not trying to shock or surprise anybody; really, I'm just being honest. It's just simply the only way I've been able to exist, anyhow. I don't know any other way, for my own mistakes and certainly mistakes of others, if you want to look at it that way. In the end, human beings, we are what we are. I'm not running for president or anything, so I'm not white-washing the life that I lived."
All dates are listed, with a video of CCR playing the song John's autobiography is named after (from one of their 1969 albums), below...

John Fogerty @ Jones Beach - 8/5/14
Creedence Clearwater Revival's John Fogerty is on a tour this year which already included three NYC-area dates and includes one more this Friday (8/8) in Atlantic City (tickets). Two of those, Monday (8/4) at PNC Bank Arts Center and Tuesday (8/5) at Jones Beach, were co-headlining shows with Jackson Browne. We caught the Jones Beach one which included a ton of Creedence favorites -- "Have You Ever Seen The Rain," "Who'll Stop The Rain," "Down on the Corner," "Up Around the Bend," "Fortunate Son," "Bad Moon Rising," etc -- and Jackson Browne coming out during Fogerty's set. Pictures of that show are in this post.
If you want to catch Jackson Browne in NYC (proper) again, he'll be back on October 7 at Beacon Theatre. Tickets for that show go on Chase and local presales (password: BROWNE) today (8/7) at 10 AM, with a general on-sale starting Friday (8/8) at 10 AM.

John Fogerty @ The Paramount - 1/30/14
Former frontman of swamp rock vets Creedence Clearwater Revival and active solo artist John Fogerty last played NYC on his fall 2013 tour and he just returned to the area for two Long Island shows at The Paramount this week. We caught last night's show (1/30), which saw the rock legend and his band (which includes his son Shane on guitar) playing tons of old CCR favorites like "Born On The Bayou," "Who'll Stop The Rain," "Have You Ever Seen The Rain," "Down On The Corner," "Fortunate Son," "Bad Moon Rising" and many more. Pictures of that show are in this post.
John hangs around the area to play Howard Stern's birthday party at Hammerstein Ballroom tonight (1/31) with Steven Tyler, Jon Bon Jovi, Louis CK, David Letterman, and Sarah Silverman. He also has some festival appearances coming up this year, including New Orleans Jazz Fest.

Rick Springfield / John Fogerty / Rick Nielson, Taylor Hawkins, Krist Novoselic
As discussed, Dave Grohl made his directorial debut with his new documentary, Sound City, which tells the story of the LA recording studio of the same name, and he brought his star-studded Sound City Players to NYC for show at Hammerstein Ballroom last night. The lineup included Stevie Nicks, John Fogerty, Rick Springfield, Lee Ving of Fear, Brad Wilk of Rage Against The Machine, Rick Nielsen of Cheap Trick, Alain Johannes, and Chris Goss, with backing from Dave Grohl himself, along with Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Krist Novoselic, Chris Shiflett, and Pat Smear.
In addition to playing original tunes that the members wrote for Sound City, the show included mini-sets from the people involved. It opened with a set from Alain Johannes, who played "Hangin' Tree" by Queens of the Stone Age, which he co-wrote, and also played some tracks from his band Eleven. Then Masters of Reality head Chris Goss brought out RATM's Brad Wilk for a set of Masters of Reality songs. Fear's Lee Ving did an original Sound City song followed by all Fear cuts. Rick Nielson of Cheap Trick did his set with Nirvana's Krist Novaselic, and the pair did all Cheap Trick songs and his cover of Fats Domino's "Ain't That A Shame". Then Rick Springfield was up, followed by John Fogerty.
Steve Nicks ended the show, doing original Sound City track, and combining that with Fleetwood Mac favorites "Dreams," "Landslide," and "Gold Dust Woman," plus here solo song, "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around," for which Dave Grohl came out and took over Tom Petty's role in the song. The sets were all backed by Foo Fighters members, and in between performances, clips of the film were played on stage. The
entire setlist (incomplete setlist, can anyone help fix it?) and more pictures from the show are below (though unfortunately, photographers were not allowed to shoot the entire show, and there are no pictures of Stevie Nicks & Dave Grohl).
Dave Grohl was also on The Colbert Report last night, where he discussed the Sound City documentary with Stephen Colbert. A video of that is below as well.
