INDIO, CA - APRIL 30: Musician John Fogerty performs during 2016 Stagecoach California's Country Music Festival at Empire Polo Club on April 30, 2016 in Indio, California.

Creedence Clearwater Revival (CCR) were quite popular in 1969 when organizers were putting together the bill for Woodstock. They were promised a prominent slot on the bill but thigns didn’t really go as plannned.  John Fogerty explains to Conan Obrien what happened when CCR went on after The Grateful Dead & how at one point in the set, he was playing to half a million people and ‘one guy’ all at the same time.

 

John Fogerty tells an engaging tale about CCR’s Woodstock set that involves The Grateful Dead, LSD & playing to half a million muddied, partially closed fans.

 

 

 

 

Conan pulled an acoustic guitar from behind the couch and asked Fogerty to play a song. John offered to play ‘Louie Louie’ but Conan requested that he play ‘one of your songs’.
