For those old enough to remember. A great loss for the music world.

Not necessary my favorite song (Run for the Roses), but this one plays on the iPhone loud and clear on YouTube:



I saw him at the Red Rocks Amphitheater (great acoustics!) in Colorado for my birthday.


He will be missed by many. The iTunes' music store has a special page on him today.

O my goodness I had no idea he passed.... That trulybsucks the big one!

I put a spell on you and bad moon rising and
green river and heard it through the grapevine and Suzy Q.....
No, that's Tom Fogerty, with CCR, and he died in 1990 from AIDS at the ripe age of 48. You are a little bit late to hear the news.

Actually, John Fogerty, Tom's brother, was the leader of CCR and wrote those songs. And John is very much alive and still putting out music.
You're right. I confused the brothers. Had Dan on my mind. He was a lot cuter.
