John Fogerty turns 70 today. To mark the occasion, he's been giving fans a chance to celebrate with him by posting their birthday greetings at his site. You can check out the photos and upload your own greetings here.

The former Creedence Clearwater Revival frontman will keep the festivities rolling in the months to come with his 1969 tour, which kicks off in Hawaii on June 5. The two-month tour will celebrate 1969, an extraordinary year in which Fogerty and his former CCR bandmates released three groundbreaking albums—Bayou Country, Green River and Willy and the Poor Boys—played Woodstock and the Atlanta Pop Festival, and scored a coveted spot on The Ed Sullivan Show... twice.

On the 1969 tour, Fogerty will mostly play his hits from those albums, including "Fortunate Son" and "Bad Moon Rising." Check here for tour dates.

Fogerty recently appeared on the Late Show where he played a fast-paced farewell to the departing host, David Letterman, thanks to the super-charged stick work of drummer Kenny Aronoff.

To help get the festivities rolling for John, we thought we'd share this fantastic video of him performing "Sharp-Dressed Man" with ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons at the Hard Rock Casino in Tulsa, Oklahoma, on October 17, 2013. Enjoy.

Happy Birthday, John!
