John Fogerty


Not many artists could release a record that features such disparate collaborators as the Zac Brown Band, the Foo Fighters, Keith Urban, Alan Jackson, Bob Seger, Dawes, Brad Paisley, Miranda Lambert, Tom Morello and Kid Rock. However, on 2013's Wrote a Song for Everyone, John Fogerty, former frontman for corner store bluegrass rock 'n' rollers Creedence Clearwater Revival, did just that. And, yeah, the record is an attempt at familiarizing the younger generations with the bard of the bayou, the Berkeley-born singer, songwriter and one hell of a guitar picker who you would've thought crawled right out of the gumbo-humid Delta; but the son of a bitch has earned it. $50-$150, 8pm, The Majestic Theatre, 224 E. Houston St., (210) 226-3333
