50 years ago, in 1968, the nation was at a crisis point. War, assassinations, political strife; millions of voices were yearning to be heard, to be understood. A year later, 1969, at least on the creative-artistic front, one voice came forward to carry a message, lyrics in song that reached out to those millions. That voice, those lyrics, were JOHN FOGERTY.
