1985: Former Creedence Clearwater Revival front man John Fogerty went to #1 on the US album chart with his third solo LP, "Centerfield". Using over-dubbing, Fogerty played all of the instruments on every track. The RIAA has since certified the album Double-Platinum (2 million album sales) on the strength of the hit singles "The Old Man Down the Road", "Rock and Roll Girls" and the title track.
