Is there a more recognizable voice than John Fogarty of Creedence Clearwater Revival?
“Who’ll Stop the Rain” was written by Fogerty and recorded by CCR for their 1970 album Cosmo’s Factory. It was one of three double-sided singles from that album to reach the top five on the Billboard Pop Singles charts and the first of two to reach the #2 spot on the American charts, alongside another classic, “Lookin’ Out My Back Door”. In 2004, Rolling Stone ranked “Who’ll Stop the Rain” at #188 on their list of “500 Greatest Songs of All Time”.
Here’s a LIVE version of “Who’ll Stop the Rain” from Creedence Clearwater Revival.
