NEW YORK (AP) — Add one of rock 'n' roll's most admired and most uncompromising stars to the list of memoir writers: John Fogerty.

The former frontman for Creedence Clearwater Revival has a deal with Little, Brown and Co. The publisher announced Monday that the memoir is scheduled for 2014. It doesn't yet have a title.

The 67-year-old Fogerty is known for writing and singing such classics as "Proud Mary" and "Down On the Corner" and for his clashes with fellow band members and record executives. In a statement released by the publisher, Fogerty said his book would in part be a story of how he maintained his "artistic integrity" despite creative and legal pressures.
