It's Spring time!

John Fogerty is one of my favorite performers. He's pushing 70 years old and can still rock hard. He credits discipline, practice and exercise for his longevity as a musician. One of his biggest hits "Centerfield" has became a standard anthem at baseball stadiums and he was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame for it. Some my not realize it, but the baseball theme was actually a metaphor for his comeback as a performer. He had some tough times when his original band, Credence Clearwater Revival, broke up and he gave up performing for over a decade. Centerfield was his comeback song. Like he often says when he introduces this song at concerts, "As long as there is life, there's hope." You Bet!
I have seen him play live a couple of times at the Arizona State Fair. He sprints on stage, plays for a couple of hours, then sprints off. A real music legend.
This video version has some really neat footage of old time spring training.........




Here's the story...........
