I've always thought the Fogerty story and how he had to fight Fantasy Records and fell out with his band, including his brother Tom, was one of the sad stories of rock n' roll.

APRIL 12, 1966 Dead Man's Curve

On April 12, 1966, 25-year-old musician Jan Berry turned onto Whittier southbound from Sunset in his Chevrolet Corvette Stingray and hit a parked truck at about 90 MPH.

Berry pulled out to pass a slow-moving vehicle and slammed full-speed into a truck that was unexpectedly parked at the curb. The Paramedics that arrived on the scene thought Berry was dead. Checking his vital signs, they found he was alive, and rushed him to the UCLA Hospital. There they found Jan's brain had been severely damaged and even numerous major brain surgeries could not completely repair the damage.. Not expected to live, Berry was in a coma for months and awoke unable walk, speak and was paralyzed on the right side.
