The Sheepdogs Rave about touring with John Fogerty

The Sheepdogs Talk Touring With Fogerty

Rolling Stone's Choose the Cover winners, the Sheepdogs, are now rubbing elbows with music notables. The band's upcoming debut on Atlantic Records was produced by the Black Keys' Patrick Carney and Rolling Stone's Austin Scaggs, and they've also toured Australia with a rock legend, an unbelievable experience for singer Ewan Currie. "Touring with John Fogerty was fantastic," he raved at Rolling Stone's backstage Rock Room party at Coachella. "Since I was about 8 or 9, I've been a fan of him and Creedence. Getting to tour back in Australia for him was close to a dream come true."

Unfortunately, the Canadian rockers' trip Down Under was not a seamless one. As bassist Ryan Gullen remembered, "The only downside was that American Airlines lost our clothes and guitars. So our first show, we had to go buy clothes from Target and rent guitars."
