Lots of people have borrowed from Tom Petty but not these guys. An album that went to number one this week in 2006 contained a song with a very similar chord progression to Mary Jane’s Last Dance . What group varied it up enough to avoid any legal action although the musical difference was very slight and both songs made the same geographical reference?

John Fogerty turns 70 today. He was CCR’s song writer, lead guitarist and lead vocalist. He’s funded grave markers for Mississippi blues men, and once perfomed CCR songs for Vietnam Vets when he wasn’t doing them live for anyone. John has fought bitterly though with his ex bandmates over the years even on the last Creedence album, Mardi Gras, where he made them do what?

It’s Jesse Valenzuela’s birthday today, and we recognize it because he’s a friend of ours and a key part of a fun 90s band that played the third turn party deck for us at the Speedway in 2008, played a balloon glow event there in 2010 and have made several other local appearances including one with the Colts and at Vinatge Indiana. What 90s group does he play for?
