Well John........I can call him John, now ?....can't I ? he gives away no secrets -- doesn't mention the guitar tunings he uses for his unique sounds --- other than a dropped 'D' tuning - which he doesn't clearly explain....vague......and I'm a guitar player. He uses many different tunings.........but he ain't discussin' that ! * I did realize after this read that it is HIM playing a fingerpick lead stlye on some of his lastest cuts --- I thought, he hired someone ( Billy Burnett ) + was a little dismayed that he would -- I was wrong....it was him playing in his "new" stlye - which he says he continues to practice + improve. The guy is a great rock guitar player. He writes - he wants to improve ! * He is obsessed.........about his recordings/production/arranging/songwriting. The guy spent 10 yrs practicing his drumming for several "I play everything" albums. * The memoir has ALOT to do about his initial, poor contract + the disfunctional Creedence band. I have no idea, how it would be, to be "attached" to the musicians I originally started with ? I played thru SO MANY personnel changes/line ups in my years - of running my band. It took a large toll on him mentally,physically and financially. And he still has to "deal" with these former musicians because of old/disputed contracts. He does take his "shots" at those guys !......."Just give me the money." * He takes no "shots" at ANYONE still living ( other than bandmates ) -- he "rips" a couple dead characters...........Is Ike Turner dead or alive ? John plays it safe...........don't wanna burn any bridges ! * His current wife............. Well.....? I don't know ?......how many of these famous guys tell ya about "the love of their life" they finally found ? I hear it too many times ! And the wife saying stuff like she didn't really know who he was, when they first met ? C'mon !......Yoko said she didn't know The Beatles or John .........yeh, sure ! We knew, she knew Paul. And now John's wife is manager / art designer / accountant / yadda -yadda............. I can't help think of Frank Sinatra's last wife - she took on all those roles,too - and pilfered everything. * I think John Fogerty is THEE greatest American pop songwriter !
