Creedence Clearwater Revisited

The idea of a Creedence Clearwater Revival cover band formed by ex-CCR members Stu Cook and Doug Clifford is either the biggest obscenity in '60s rock revivals, or the only fully musically just and honest cover band phenomenon there is.

To people who take rock & roll seriously, the existence of Creedence Clearwater Revisited is probably an abomination -- the equivalent of Paul and Ringo going back on the road leading a Beatles cover band, complete with replacements for John and George. But before anyone tunes out on this, bassist Stu Cook and drummer Doug "Cosmo" Clifford have as much right to capitalize on the Creedence Clearwater Revival repertory as anyone other than John Fogerty -- yes, he wrote the stuff, but they were the rhythm section, and as good a rhythm section as any American white rock & roll band of the '60s ever had, on songs where the beat, not to mention the textures of the bass and the drums, counted for a lot. And they were with Fogerty and his brother Tom from the beginning, playing lots of thankless gigs for short-end money before lightning struck in 1968. And since Fogerty kept this repertory at more than arm's length for more than 25 years after their breakup, and the songs were more popular than ever, it was almost inevitable that a CCR cover band would emerge. The unexpected aspect is that it was done by former CCR members.

Following the breakup of CCR in 1972, Cook and Clifford, who'd been friends since junior high, formed a production company together. Clifford later joined the latter-day Sir Douglas Quintet, while Cook joined a group of ex-members of the Doobie Brothers in forming the country-rock outfit Southern Pacific. They kept fairly low profiles as working musicians, although they were still busier musically than Fogerty, who, for a variety of personal reasons, didn't really re-emerge in the public eye until the end of the 1980s. Creedence Clearwater Revisited was initially supposed to be a short-run project, conceived in 1995 -- Elliot Easton, formerly of the Cars, played lead guitar, and John Tristao handled the vocals. They were only supposed to play private parties, but soon the band was getting 100 gigs a year.

Suffice it to say that these guys are singularly unlikely to ever be a major creative force (or even part of one) in rock music the way they were 30 years ago, and the chance of anything new or fresh issuing forth from them is practically nil. But that's also true of Chuck Berry and a lot of other names bigger than Cook or Clifford, and CCRevisited does put on a good show, and crowds looking for good-time rock & roll music enjoy them, the same way that Rob Grill & the Grass Roots or whatever version of "Herman's Hermits" Peter Noone is fronting can pull 15,000 to an outdoor venue on a decent summer night. At least CCRevisited doesn't pretend to be anything more than what it is, even if they're not too much more than a flesh-and-blood jukebox.

Of course, the eerie backdrop to their presence is the fact that Fogerty (who cut a great blues-rock album in 1997) finally overcame his reticence about his old songs and issued his own live album, at virtually the same time that CCRevisited got its double live CD out. So fans once limited to a choice of original CCR recordings are now faced with Fogerty's own new versions of his old hits, and new live versions of those same hits by this band. Anyone under 25 without a lot of background in music will probably need a program to sort through it all. ~ Bruce Eder

Did he own the rights at that time?

I was working security for a massive 3 day concert in Lampe, Missouri. While at my hotel room, I heard a band doing a pretty darn good CCR rendition in the bar. I ventured over only to find it was CCRevisited standing in with the night's house band. IT was pretty cool . I think the lead MUSCLED UP singer was named Vince?? Anyway, sorry about rousting you off the grass infield, Stu Cook! lol

I seem to remember that Fogerty actually asked Stu & Doug to re-form the band around a year ago. Stu/Doug turned him down. I guess they still do not like each other!

Fogarty wrote and sung these songs. They are his. Revisted is just trying to make money off Fogarty's songs. There is no CCR without Fogarty, period!

It's all good. People want to hear these songs done live and these guys have a right to do that. They aren't ripping off anybody and they're not trying to fool anybody.

These guys cover the songs better than Fogarty anyway.

CCR was a good band up until Bayou Country, after that they became annoying since Fogerty's vocal style showed he was a one trick pony and the songs got sappy and pseudo-polit i c a l . I also understand that John Fogerty and the other original members weren't on speaking terms for the last 40+ years and other than John Fogerty they didn't make much money.

Any wonder this subject attracts so much attention?! Fogarty was Credence! Stu and Co. lent the rhythm and they all got ripped by management. Methinks both parties have a right. Fogarty still has a million ton of ability and Cook and Associates have a right. Damn shame that Tom isn't still in the mix, to level the argument. Together they were the best for this '68 boy and always will be! Perhaps only B Seger can match it

You are either a Fogerty fan or a Revisited fan. Revisited doesn't come close to sound or rhythm of John Fogerty. Who to this day makes and releases new music. Long live Creedence Clearwater Revival

Kind of ironic. While CCR was officially in business they never had a no. 1 hit. Not till after they broke up did that happen. So sad. What a great, great group. Listen to them while working in my garage.

I don't think the guitar here lacks the soul of fogerty, I think it's a rather great emulation and tribute really, he's playing the style, and hitting some of the same riffs while maintaining some originality as well in his jam of this bad song. having heard many bar bands and been to many a free jam session, this song usually sounds good whoever is playing it.
Granted, Fogerty's version is still the best overall, and stuff, these guys sound pretty darn good to me.
