John Fogerty Amazed At His Creedence Outut
John Fogerty's early days leading Creedence Clearwater Revival have gone down in history as birthing some of the most successful -- and rapidly released -- hits in rock. Between 1968 and 1972, Creedence scored 14 Top 40 hit singles -- 13 of them written by Fogerty and all of them arranged and produced by him. Within those Top 40 hits, nine went Top 10 -- in addition to the band's five Top 10 albums -- including two chart-toppers released between 1969 and 1971.
 
We asked John Fogerty about the the blossoming creativity he was enjoying in the late-'60's and early-'70s, which even led him the band to release no less than three albums in 1969, alone: "Young people -- including who I was then -- are quite precocious, immortal; it’s not true bunt that’s how you feel. I set out to do something and did it, y’know (laughs)? That was my intention. It’s only now, y’know, I’m kind of flabbergasted, that it’s like, ‘wow!’ I mean, I’m not sure. . . If I set out to do that now, I would also know how remarkably rare and almost impossible it is, and that might preclude the effort in the first place. You don’t know that when you’re young, you just kind of go ahead and do it."
