UPDATE: John Fogerty's long-awaited memoir Fortunate Son: My Life, My Music will arrive on October 6th, 2015. 

John Fogerty will join the ranks of rock & roll authors with a new memoir, The Associated Press reports. The singer, songwriter and former Creedence Clearwater Revival leader has struck a deal with Little, Brown and Co. for a still-untitled autobiography due in 2014. 

"I want to tell the story of how I fought – hard – to maintain my artistic integrity in the face of opposing forces," Fogerty said in a statement issued through Little, Brown, which published Keith Richards' million-selling 2010 book Life.

After Creedence split in the Seventies, Fogerty spent years fighting his former label, Fantasy Records, and sometimes his former bandmates, in court while building a solo career  that is expected to yield a new album, Wrote a Song for Everyone, next year.
