Northern California native JOHN FOGERTY took a break from the promo schedule for his upcoming WROTE A SONG FOR EVERYONE album to join The Rolling Stones onstage at their Wednesday, May 8 HP Pavilion at San Jose show. The Grammy Award-winning Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee sat in with the band, playing guitar and singing on their early gem “It’s All Over Now.”
FOGERTY–one of rock’s most important artists and a national treasure who’s sold over 100 million albums–is busy gearing up for the May 28 release of WROTE A SONG FOR EVERYONE (Vanguard Records). A celebration of FOGERTY’s iconic songbook, the much-anticipated album is a collection of 12 classics and deep tracks (Creedence Clearwater Revival and solo material) from his remarkable canon of hits recorded in collaboration with today’s biggest superstars from the country, pop and rock worlds, plus two brand new solo songs.
WROTE A SONG FOR EVERYONE marks FOGERTY‘s ninth studio solo album since disbanding Creedence Clearwater Revival. Mixed by Bob Clearmountain, it was recorded in Los Angeles and Nashville except for “Proud Mary” which was recorded in New Orleans with Allen Toussaint and the Rebirth Brass Band. FOGERTY recorded “Fortunate Son” with Foo Fighters at their 606 studio using “the” legendary Neve recording console featured in the #1 iTunes documentary Sound City. In an in-studio feature in Rolling Stone (2/14/13), Clearmountain is quoted as saying: “It’s no nostalgia fest. It’s like they’re new songs.”
