John Fogerty abandons one-man band approach

John Fogerty has spoken of why he chose to work with other musicians on his new album, rather than record the whole LP by himself.

Electric guitar player John Fogerty revealed why he chose not to play all the musical instruments on his latest album.

The former Creedence Clearwater Revival frontman recorded a country, blues and gospel covers album called The Blue Ridge Rangers following the band's split in the early 1970s.

Fogerty took the idea of becoming a solo artist to the limit, playing all the instruments including the drum kit, electric guitar, fiddle and banjo.

He has revisited the theme of returning to his roots with a new collection called The Blue Ridge Rangers Rides Again, although this features him working with various other musicians.

"I knew I would not do it as a one-man band the next time around," Fogerty told USA Today.

He described his chosen method of recording the earlier album as a "psychological reaction" to trouble he was having with his record company at the time.

Among the musicians on the new album is Fender Telecaster player Bruce Springsteen, who appears on a version of The Everly Brothers' classic When Will I Be Loved.
