Rock legend John Fogerty performs live.

Live by Request, a live superstar concert event that redefines the music television experience and is controlled by fan interaction, presents rock legend John Fogerty. It is the only television program where viewers actually create the artist’s set list and have the chance to personally talk to their music idol via live interactive video requests, call-in requests and text, email and social network requests. Live by Request: John Fogerty airs Saturday, November 7 at 9 p.m. on WXXI-TV (DT21.1/cable1011/cable11).

For more than four decades, John Fogerty has been an American treasure: one of the most revered and influential artists to emerge in the 60s, and still a vital part of the musical landscape. As lead singer, guitarist and songwriter of Creedence Clearwater Revival and as a Grammy-winning, chart-topping solo artist, Fogerty’s sound has encompassed everything from blues to country and southern swamp rock and roll. Known as one of the greatest songwriters, singers and guitarists of all time, Fogerty was inducted in to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1993. With the recent release of The Blue Ridge Rangers Rides Again (Fortunate Son/Verve Forecast), Fogerty joyfully resurrects his mythical group. The New York Times recently noted in their review of Fogerty’s free concert in New York City, “he still has the biting yowl and near yodel of his Creedence days in his voice, and his guitar parts are pure and chiseled: riffs, strums and a little chicken-plucking lead.”

John Fogerty Live

You are doing what you always do when you have a great concert... talk too much! Are you so arrogant as to think that viewers want to listen to you hock memberships while in the back ground they can see John Fogerty just standing (and waiting) on stage? Now I see Fogerty, and his band, are playing background music while this blonde continues to talk. I think it's safe to bet that Fogerty came to play music rather than stand around. How embarassing for him. He won't be back in this type of venue.
I'm really only stating what should be obvious to you!
