A CCR Reunion? It’s Off Again

Those of you who follow my blogs know that I have reported on the on again off again possibility of a reunion between the members of Creedence Clearwater Revival, John Fogerty Doug Clifford and Stu Cook.  As recently as the fall of 2011, Fogerty was suggesting that he would be open to such a plan and possibly a tour.

Shortly after that, Fogerty did a few shows in which he played entire Creedence albums, leading to rumors that he would be joined by Doug and Stu.  But it never happened and, according to Clifford, he has no interest.   (The fourth member of the group, John’s brother Tom died in 1990)

Here’s why Clifford says a reunion was just not to be :  “First and foremost, he never called us. If you’re talking about a reunion, think it would be a pretty good idea to talk to us about it. Our manager called his guy. The concept we had was rejected. So he comes out in the press, he says all these things, and then, you know, it was really just to try and polish the mistake that he made. And so that kind of pissed us off. So when people started asking us about it, we said no, we’re not interested.”

Creedance Clearwater Revisited will be back on the road this month and Fogerty is releasing his screen share duets album with artists like Detroit’s Bob Seger and Kid Rock.
