“John Fogerty: Wrote a Song for Everyone,” a new exhibition will open at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles on September 26. It will feature memorabilia from throughout the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer’s life and career. Fogerty will also take part in a special interview event that will coincide with the opening. The Q&A event, will take place at the museum’s Clive Davis Theater, with the former CCR frontman chatting with Grammy Museum executive director Bob Santelli and also taking questions from the audience.
Items to be displayed in the exhibition include Fogerty’s “Centerfield” baseball-bat guitar, a Dobro guitar that appears on the cover of Creedence’s 1969 album Green River, a scrapbook John kept during his years with CCR; his handwritten lyrics to “Proud Mary,” his high-school yearbook and diploma, and various photos, letters, posters, awards, stage costumes and tour collectibles.
