16 :02x04 - John Fogerty

A rock legend for three decades, the former frontman of Creedence Clearwater Revival and renowned solo artist keeps it simple as can be: Dressed in denim, sitting on a stool, he talks politics and family while performing hit after amazing hit: "Lookin' Out My Back Door," "Bad Moon Rising," "Who'll Stop The Rain." Before launching into "Proud Mary," Fogerty admits he can't sing the song without picturing Tina Turner with her fringed dress shaking to and fro. Don't miss the set closer, a searing version of 1969's "Fortunate Son."
