Happy 70th birthday to John Fogerty, the vocalist and guitarist for Creedence Clearwater Revival and his own solo act.

To celebrate his nearly 50 years in the music industry, we went back and chose what we thought his best piece of work from the past five decades. After you're done here, feel free to comment below (we know the picks for the Creedence years will be controversial) and then check out our similar feature on Eric Clapton and Bob Seger.READ MORE

American listeners may be surprised to learn about acts such as Gerry and The Pacemakers, The Shadows and Cliff Richard.READ MORE
