John Fogerty releases his third live solo album today, 50 Year Trip: Live at Red Rocks.
Recorded at the iconic venue in Morrison, Colorado just outside Denver, this past June 20th, it contains 19 songs spanning his career.
John Fogerty talked about the album:"Happily, you know, we did pretty good that night. But the real star of production is my wife Julie. This whole thing was kind of something she imagined a while ago as far as what we're calling my 50 Year Trip. She even coined that phrase actually. She's very visual and I give her all the credit in the world for putting this together and figuring out a way to get it filmed."
And that visual component of this release will be screened in more than 500 theaters on Monday, Veteran's Day. Fogerty is a veteran, having served in the Army Reserve in the mid '60s.
Playing at Red Rocks has taken on a whole new meaning for two members of Fogerty's band -- his sons Shane and Tyler.
John says,"Back in the day when I would play at Red Rocks they were little -- you know, four and five years old and climbing around on all those rocks. They'd be out there having a good time while I'm doing soundcheck let's say. And then mom and dad would kind of reign them in as it got later and it was time for the show to begin. But now they're playing there, but they're playing music with me on stage. It's just amazing to think about as a parent."
This week and next Fogerty and his sons are playing music in Las Vegas during a six-show residency at the Wynn.
