It came out of thr sky
Up around the bend
Bad moon rising
Wrote a song for everyone
Born on the bayou
I ain't never
Have you ever seen the rain?
Who'll stop the rain
Someday never comes
Don't look now
I'm a lonesome fugitive
Gonna have love
On the road again
Before you accuse me
Eagle ridin' papa
It came out of the sky

200 fans celebrated the 55th anniversary of John Fogerty in Finland
The second annual Fogerty
Fest Finland, the birthday tribute for
John Fogerty, was held at Bottom Club,
Hyvinkää, Finland, on 26 May 2000.
The Fest was organized by Halko Ry, a live music organization in Southern Finland,
the Worldwide CCR Fan Club and the Electric Bayou Web Site.
There were 200 fans enjoying the main concert of the Commotion Band and also the good company, the good
food and the good drinks. It was the all-time attendance record of the club.
Before Commotion took the stage, the crowd enjoyed the performance by a local duo
called Kova T. They provided a full set of interesting accoustic renditions
of the swamp rock master.
Commotion played three marvellous sets, including a
bunch of classic CCR and John Fogerty songs. They
kicked off with a superb version of "It Came Out Of The Sky", knocking
the socks off.
Of course, the evening also saw a live version of "Ramble
Tamble", one of the trademarks of the band. And many, many
It was one of the best gigs Commotion has ever played.
The sound mix was excellent. There was a rush on the dance floor
from the opening licks until the last note of the encore song.
Special Guest Star
The show also featured four songs by Esa as a
special guest vocalist. His rendition of rarely performed
"Someday Never Comes" saluted the original cut and was one of the
definite highlights of the evening.
"Someday Never Comes"
Tough and exciting
The CCR Quiz, one of the essential part of the fest, was
tough and exciting as always. The winner and the happy owner
of the rare Inside Creedence book as the main prize was Olli
Valo who really could see the Light. Other precious prizes
for runner-ups included the Premonition CD, a Commotion CD,
T-shirts, caps and posters.
Fogerty Fest Finland 2000 provided splendid time and
happy memories for all.
