Creedence Clearwater Revisited

Biography

The thought of a Creedence Clearwater Revival cover band formed by ex-CCR members Stu Cook and Doug Clifford is either the largest obscenity in ’60s rock revivals, or the only real fully musically just and honest cover band phenomenon there’s. To individuals who consider rock and roll & roll significantly, the lifestyle of Creedence Clearwater Revisited is most likely an abomination — the same as Paul and Ringo heading back on the highway leading a Beatles cover music group, complete with substitutes for John and George. But before anyone music from this, bassist Stu Make and drummer Doug “Cosmo” Clifford possess as much to capitalize around the Creedence Clearwater Revival repertory as anyone apart from John Fogerty — yes, he published the stuff, however they had been the tempo section, so when good a tempo section as any American white rock and roll & move band from the ’60s ever endured, on tunes where the defeat, not forgetting the textures from the bass as well as the drums, counted for a whole lot. And they had been with Fogerty and his sibling Tom right from the start, playing plenty of thankless gigs for short-end cash before lightning struck in 1968. And since Fogerty held this repertory at a lot more than arm’s size for a lot more than 25 years after their separation, as well as the tunes had been more popular than ever before, it was nearly inevitable a CCR cover music group would emerge. The unforeseen aspect is the fact that it was completed by previous CCR members. Following break up of CCR in 1972, Make and Clifford, who’d been close friends since junior high, shaped a production business together. Clifford afterwards joined up with the latter-day Sir Douglas Quintet, while Make joined several ex-members from the Doobie Brothers in developing the country-rock clothing Southern Pacific. They held fairly low information as working music artists, although these were still busier musically than Fogerty, who, for a number of personal factors, didn’t actually re-emerge in the general public eye before end from the 1980s. Creedence Clearwater Revisited was said to be a short-run task, conceived in 1995 — Elliot Easton, previously from the Vehicles, played lead electric guitar, and John Tristao managed the vocals. These were only likely to play personal parties, but shortly the music group was obtaining 100 gigs per year. Suffice it to state that these men are singularly improbable to ever be considered a major creative power (as well as section of one) in rock and roll music the direction they had been 30 years back, and the opportunity of anything brand-new or refreshing issuing forth from their website is virtually nil. But that’s also accurate of Chuck Berry and lots of other names larger than Make or Clifford, and CCRevisited will put on an excellent display, and crowds searching for good-time rock and roll & move music appreciate them, the same manner that Rob Barbeque grill & the Lawn Origins or whatever edition of “Herman’s Hermits” Peter Noone is usually fronting can draw 15,000 to a patio venue on the decent summer night time. A minimum of CCRevisited doesn’t pretend to become any other thing more than what it really is, even if they are not an excessive amount of greater than a flesh-and-blood jukebox. Needless to say, the eerie backdrop with their presence may be the proven fact that Fogerty (who slice an excellent blues-rock recording in 1997) finally overcame his reticence about his aged tunes and released his personal live recording, at virtually once that CCRevisited got its dual live Compact disc out. So followers once limited by a selection of initial CCR recordings are actually confronted with Fogerty’s personal new variations of his aged hits, and fresh live versions of these same strikes by this music group. Anyone under 25 with out a lot of history in music will most likely need a system to evaluate it all.

#Fact
1 Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1993, the same year as Cream, The Doors, Frankie Lymon and the Teenagers, Etta James, Van Morrison, and Sly and the Family Stone.
2 Ranked #47 on VH1's 100 Greatest Artists of Rock & Roll.
3 The band holds the record for the most number of No.2 chart hits without ever having had a No.1.
4 "Susie Q" was the band's only Top 40 hit that wasn't written by John Fogerty.
5 In the four years the band was together, they never had a #1 single in the US. But they did have 13 songs that reached the Top 40, including five singles that hit #2.
6 The band's name was a combination of several things. Credence Nuvall was a co-worker and friend of Tom Fogerty. A TV commercial for Olympia beer showed scenes of waterfalls and clean water supposedly used in beer making. The band had been playing together for nearly ten years under other band names and were finally able to try to make it to the big time late in 1967. It was a "revival" of sorts when things finally came together for the guys in the band.
7 Members have included John Fogerty, Tom Fogerty, Stu Cook, Doug Clifford
