After getting their name back, this Creedence Clearwater Revisited is hotter than ever! Includes two original members and minus John Fogerty.
Stu Cook and Doug "Cosmo" Clifford may not have intended it, but their band Creedence Clearwater Revisited has taken on a startling life of its own. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame rhythm section (bass and drums respectively) from the legendary Creedence Clearwater Revival launched the Revisited project in 1995 to play live Creedence Clearwater Revival hits.
"We never really had any intention of playing in the public," says Cook, "but a friend wanted to promote a couple of concerts. We got talked into it, but didn't know how it would go over."
The reaction to those shows was astoundingly positive, Cook observed, driven in part by a generation of kids "who weren't even born when the music came out."
Having now performed all over North America, Europe and Asia, knocking out crowds who witness the experience of Creedence Clearwater Revival members performing the songs that are still repeatedly played on the radio and are a staple in films, Creedence Clearwater Revisited has come a long way.
Creedence Clearwater Revisited is the latest
chapter of in the now four-decade long journey that began in the 60's
when Creedence Clearwater Revival's distinctive rock sound captured the
world's imagination. Classics like "Suzie Q," "Born on
the Bayou," "Run Through The Jungle," "Bad Moon
Rising," "Fortunate Son" and "Who'll Stop the
Rain" have earned the band a following that has stayed faithful
over the years and continues to grow today.
"We thought if we could find the musicians that could capture the sound and recreate what the music was about, we'd do it," recalls Cook. "If we couldn't, we wouldn't."
"I couldn't imagine [the band] coming together and staying together better than this organization," offers Cook, who likens Revisited's intra-band rapport to that of early Creedence Clearwater Revival, when the band was slugging it out in Central California as the Golliwogs.
Creedence Clearwater Revival's distinctive rock captured the imagination of the pop world – the songs made great three minute radio gems – and the more politicized subculture, and they successfully bridged the gap between the underground and mainstream audiences. Writer Greil Marcus wrote that "rarely in rock and roll history has there been so close a relation between creative achievement and audience response."
"People don't want to be involved in an endless debate," Clifford sums up about the Creedence Clearwater Revival break-up. "They want to hear music. Creedence Clearwater Revisited is an experience they're not going to get anywhere else."
