John Fogerty pulled himself out of the game sometime after his 1976 album Hoodoo failed to materialize and he sat on the bench for a full decade, returning in the thick of the Reagan era with Centerfield in 1985. For as knowingly nostalgic as Centerfield is, deliberately mining from Fogerty’s childhood memories and consciously referencing his older tunes, the album is steeped in the mid-‘80s, propelled too often by electronic drums – the title track has a particularly egregious use of synthesized handclaps – occasionally colored by synths and always relying on the wide-open production that characterized the ‘80s…
Self-Made Man contains nearly 80 minutes of all original steamy blues and smokin’ blues-rock, incorporating Chicago, boogie, swamp, swing, and harmonica blues, all recorded with a live-in-the-studio sound that is true to Studebaker John’s stage performances. For more than 25 years, John has been writing, recording and performing only original compositions, along with continuous touring throughout the US, Canada, UK and Europe in support of his music. His songs have been featured in major motion pictures and prime-time TV commercials. Many articles have been written about John in various publications including Guitar One magazine US, Blues in Britain, and a cover story in Back to the Roots magazine in Belgium. His music can be heard on blues radio shows every day around the globe. As a songwriter and musician, Studebaker John has emerged as a major creative force in the world of the blues today. If “Alternative Rock” is a meaningful description of progressive variations of this style of music, then John has laid the foundation for “Alternative Blues”. Ahead of the pack, with vision and foresight, creating a new standard and landscape for this music’s future… with John at the wheel, the future is now.
