Look, I don't care if you think you're sick to death of evergreens like "Bad Moon Rising" and "Fortunate Son." Nor do I care that John Fogerty looks like an old lesbian now. The man is simply one of the finest American songwriters to ever grace this earth—I'm talking Stephen Foster, George Gershwin, Woody Guthrie level. If you don't believe me, take yet another listen to Chronicle, that flawless, 20-track summation of Creedence Clearwater Revival's stunningly short career (four years!), and simply the greatest "greatest hits" disc ever pressed to metal, or plastic, whatever the fuck CDs are made out of. (If your local doesn't have Chronicle in the juke, raise a fuss.) Just ask the Dude: Creedence is where it's at. John Fogerty's performing tonight, and all of Oregon should be excited. After all, this is the man responsible for not one, but two of the best songs about rain ever written. NED LANNAMANN
