The band’s gutsy rock and roll sound was established in their debut album, Creedence Clearwater Revival in June 1968. By the end of the year that pseudo psychedelic sound earned CCR gold record status. The Fogerty brothers (Tom and songwriter John), drummer Doug “Cosmo” Clifford and bassist Stu Cook blended Southern Creole styles, R&B and rockabilly in their second album, Bayou Country. The hit “Proud Mary” from that album became their first international breakthrough, and began a string of gold record hits in 1969, including “Bad Moon Rising” / “Lodi,” “Green River” / “Commotion,” and “Down On the Corner” / “Fortunate Son.”
In 1969, Rolling Stone named the group Best American Band and Billboard reported they were the “Top Singles Artists of 1969.” Additionally, CCR was the second highest bill at the Woodstock rock festival. The group continued to create new albums and songs, including such gold record hits as “Travelin’ Band” / “Who’ll Stop the Rain” and “Have You Ever Seen the Rain” / “Hey Tonight.” By October 1972, CCR officially disbanded to pursue separate music interests. The group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1993.
In January 1995, Clifford and Cook put together their boundless talents and energy to form Creedence Clearwater Revisited. In 1996 they had sold out shows around the world from Bangkok to Berlin to Billings, playing to more than 350,000 fans. John Tristao joined Clifford and Cook to handle lead vocals and rhythm guitar. Other band members include Tal Morris on lead guitar, and Steve Gunner on keyboards/acoustic guitar. Visit www.creedence-revisited.com.
