Crook served up slave wage royalty rates to CCR and took Fogerty's songs. I bet John send a frozen turd attached to a stick to the funeral.

Yes, he definitely ripped CCR off and made his fortune on them, tried to hold on to John, his cash cow, and held onto all John's wonderful songs with a death grip and betrayed him all kinds of ways, even sued him for sounding like himself and almost ruined John's life. But several years ago, John forgave the whole bunch and put it all behind him and doesn't care about all that anymore, but is going on with a great life, a happy life, and an incredible career. He is loving life and loving performing and is as good as ever. So...John wins in the end! He finally heeded his daddy's advice and didn't let the MAN get him. John Fogerty is an amazing guy.

John got burnt to a crisp by the Zaentz Can't Dance. For years John never admitted he owned no "Proud Mary" out of humiliation for signing the screw contract....now he's putting it to book. I hope he doesn't Billy Joel it and dump it before printing. Chuck Berry sold song by song back to the Chess guys and even mobbed up cash buyers like Morris Levy. They all signed the things with no lawyers.

Hey, Mur. Found you on an MJ forum, too. Been wondering what "Boshnick" meant. What gives?
