“Boomer rock.” When exactly do you think punk started? Who exactly do you think listened to punk first?

The Stooges’ self titled was released when Creedence was at its peak. Fogerty was boomer then and it’s boomer now. Television released Marquee Moon the same year Tom Jones recorded Say You’ll Stay Until Tomorrow.

There were irrelevant boomers then and they’re clearly here now. There were some decent people in that age group as well. The term generally applies to one of of those groups. Guess which one.

John Fogerty isn’t a boomer - he was born before that generation.

Fogerty was born in 1945, so yes, technically not a boomer (1946-1964). Culturally speaking though, he has more in common with the “boomer generation” than with the “silent generation”. CCR was at peak popularity in the late '60s and early 70s, which is the heart of the 1st wave boomers.

Eh - many people in that huge range don’t identify with the usual touchstones listed - having been children in the summer of love.
