Tonight’s mystery artist saw something that would inspire one of his hit songs when he was only 8 years old and didn’t even play guitar yet but he says he looked at is and committed it to memory knowing he’d use it someday. Any idea who he might be or what he saw as a child that stuck with him??

This interesting little fact can actually be found in two places one in the interview below with Uncle Joe’s Garage and also in the biography of John Fogerty ‘Fortunate Son’ published a few years ago. In the book John tells how he was hanging out at a local soda fountain with his friends at 8 years old and one of the soda drinks on the menu board was ‘Green River’ I think you can figure out the rest.

Here is tonight’s featured song synonymous with summer.

The interview.
