John Fogerty: Live By Request
Airs Saturday, November 7, 2009 at 9 p.m. on KPBS TV
Wednesday, November 4, 2009
Rock legend John Fogerty will star on the Emmy Award-winning live music series, "LIVE BY REQUEST." Fogerty will perform music requested by the show’s viewers. The show is produced by Media Push Entertainment in association with PBS.
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.”
"LIVE BY REQUEST" is a live superstar concert event that redefines the music television experience and is controlled by fan interaction. 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. With the premiere PBS special, "LIVE BY REQUEST" will fully engage viewers across multiple media platforms for the first time via live interactive video requests, call-in requests and text, email and social network requests. "LIVE BY REQUEST" creates a unique connection between artists and fans.
