Fogerty a classic rock start to concert series
John Fogerty, 67, an original member of Creedence Clearwater Revival and long since a solo artist, is known for his gravely, roots-based rock.
His forthcoming album, "Wrote a Song for Everyone," links Fogerty with peers, some of the younger musicians following in his large footsteps. On the album, he sings "Fortunate Son" with the Foo Fighters, "Born on the Bayou" with Kid Rock and "Proud Mary" with Jennifer Hudson.
Fogerty's music always has straddled a fine line between country and rock. The album celebrates that with tracks featuring Alan Jackson and Bob Seger.
Although alienated from his CCR band mates, Fogerty still makes these timeless songs soar. In his plaid shirt, often with a black bandana taut at his neckline, Fogerty packs power, feeling and fun into his performances.
John Fogerty plays at 7 p.m. Saturday at Chateau Ste. Michelle, 14111 NE 145th St., Woodinville.
Tickets are $45 to $69.50 at ticketmaster.com, 800-745-3000 or at the winery.
