Little, Brown and CompanyJohn Fogerty‘s new memoir, Fortunate Son: My Life, My Music, will be released on October 6, and the former Creedence Clearwater Revival frontman has scheduled a series of special events in New York and the Los Angeles area to promote the book. One of the most interesting events will take place on October 12 at the famed Troubadour club in West Hollywood, California, and will feature Fogerty being interviewed fellow rock star George Thorogood.

Dubbed “An Evening in Conversation with John Fogerty,” the Q&A session will feature Thorogood chatting with the 70-year-old Rock and Roll Hall of Famer about his eventful life and roller-coaster career, much of which he details in the book.

“I spent many, many hours reflecting and writing about the details of my life, from childhood dreams, the passion behind my music, all leading up to my life today,” says Fogerty about Fortunate Son. “I am very excited to have my fans read and share in my story. It hasn’t been easy, but where it leads certainly has been worth it all.”

The memoir follows John from his childhood in Northern California and his early forays into music, to his exciting but tumultuous years as CCR’s leader, while also delving into the group’s acrimonious breakup and his subsequent withdrawal from the music business, his triumphant return to the spotlight as a solo artist and his inspiring relationship with his current wife.

Fogerty’s schedule also includes other interview events in New York City at the 92nd Street Y on October 6 — the book’s release date — and in Los Angeles at the Barnes & Noble at The Grove on October 13 and at the Grammy Museum’s Clive Davis Theater on October 16.
