John Fogerty celebrates his 74th birthday today (May 28th). The Creedence Clearwater Revival song “Green River” is one of his favorites on one of his favorite albums “Green River” Not only did the single hit # 2 but it came from his childhood.
“I’ve long said that was my favorite album from the Creedence era and probably my favorite song from that era, too. Green River was, in fact, a place called Putah Creek, up in Northern California by Winters. It was just this really lazy country crick. It’s the place where I learned how to swim.”
