Rock-n-roll legend John Fogerty posted a motivational picture with a special guest: his dog, appropriately dubbed Creedence.
On Wednesday, the “Bad Moon Rising” singer shared the photo via his personal Twitter account. “Morning hike with Creedence,” he captioned the photo.
However, this isn’t the first time fans have gotten a glimpse of the adorable golden retriever. Back in May, Creedence joined Fogerty during a performance for Rolling Stone’s “In My Room Series.”
According to Rolling Stone, Fogerty’s performance marked the third episode of the live stream.
Created when the COVID-19 pandemic was ramping up in the U.S., the series’s goal was to give “fans a glimpse into the many ways music can help and heal.”
Before performing his classic 1971 hit song, “Have You Ever Seen The Rain,” Fogerty shared some kind words with his virtual audience.
“These are certainly different times that we’re living through…Nobody really knows how long this is going to last, but the better we do at taking the advice of medical people, the shorter it will be.” He added, “I’m sure we’re all going stir crazy after 10 days or so of doing this, and I thought I’d go outside and get some fresh air and maybe sing a couple of songs. Be well, everyone.”
‘Creedence’ Appears With John Fogerty For Musical Performance
As he performed the song from CCR’s 1970 album, Pendulum, he was accompanied only by his lone guitar and loyal dog Creedence.
His lyrics, now over half a century old, were painfully relevant for the time.
“There’s a calm before the storm
I know, it’s been comin’ for some time
When it’s over, so they say
It will rain a sunny day”
Afterward, Fogerty kept the hits going with “Bad Moon Rising,” off the band’s 1969 LP, Green River.
In front of his fireplace, Fogerty sat behind his piano to sing an emotional “Long As I Can See The Light” from 1970’s Cosmo’s Factory to close out the set.
Soon after, Fogerty announced that he would be canceling his scheduled Las Vegas residency in June 2020 as the pandemic continued to get worse in the U.S.
In November, the 9-show series was set to mark the closing dates of the legend’s “My 50 Year Trip” tour, which he started last year while celebrating the anniversary of Creedence Clearwater Revival’s appearance at Woodstock.
“For the safety of all,” said Fogerty at the time, “we are regretfully canceling our upcoming shows @ Wynn Las Vegas. John Fogerty’s 50 Year Trip will be chooglin’ again soon.”
