History

Before Creedence: 1959-1967

John Fogerty, Doug Clifford, and Stu Cook (all born 1945) met at senior high school in El Cerrito, California and began playing instrumentals together under the name The Blue Velvets. The trio also backed singer Tom Fogerty—John's older brother by three years—at live gigs and in the recording studio. By 1964, the band had signed to Fantasy Records, an independent jazz label based in San Francisco at the time. El Cerrito is a city in Contra Costa County, California, United States. ...

Fantasy had released Cast Your Fate to the Wind, a national hit for jazz pianist Vince Guaraldi. The record's success was the subject of an NET TV special, which prompted budding songwriter John Fogerty to contact the label. For the band's first release, however, Fantasy co-owner Max Weiss renamed the group The Golliwogs (after the children's literary character, Golliwogg), apparently to cash in on a wave of popular British bands with similar names. Cast Your Fate to the Wind is an American pop standard written by Vince Guaraldi, which won a Grammy Award for Best Original Jazz Composition in 1963. ... Vince Guaraldi (July 17, 1928 - February 6, 1976) was an American jazz musician and pianist best known for composing music for animated adaptations of the Peanuts comic strip. ...

The Golliwogs was an American rock band which eventually became Creedence Clearwater Revival. ... Uptons Golliwogg and friends in The Adventures of two Dutch Dolls And A Golliwogg, published in 1895. ...


During this period, band roles underwent some changes. Stu Cook had gone from piano to bass guitar and Tom Fogerty became the band's rhythm guitarist. John Fogerty also began to write much of the band's material. Most notably, the young guitarist had taken over lead vocal duty. As Tom would later say, "I could sing, but John had a sound."


Early success: 1967-68

The group had suffered a setback in 1966 when the draft board called up John Fogerty and Doug Clifford for military service. Fogerty managed to enlist in the Army Reserve instead of the regular Army while Clifford did a tenure in the United States Coast Guard Reserve. Army reserves are a part of an army which is normally activated only during emergencies such as a war. ... The United States Coast Guard Reserve , established in 1939 as a civilian reserve, is the military reserve component of the United States Coast Guard. ...


A much more positive event occurred in 1967 when Saul Zaentz purchased Fantasy Records from Weiss and offered the band a chance to record a full-length album, but only if the group changed its name. Never having liked The Golliwogs, the foursome readily agreed. Zaentz and the band agreed to come up with ten suggestions each, but he enthusiastically agreed to their first: Creedence Clearwater Revival. The band took the three elements from Creedence Nuball, a friend of Tom Fogerty; "clear water", from a TV commercial for Olympia beer; and revival, which spoke to the four members' renewed commitment to their band. (Other contenders were Muddy Rabbit, Gossamer Wump, and Creedence Nuball and the Ruby.) It has been suggested that The Saul Zaentz Film Center be merged into this article or section. ... The Olympia Brewing Company was a brewery in Tumwater, Washington which existed from 1896 until 2003. ...


By 1968, Fogerty and Clifford had been discharged from military service. All four members subsequently quit their jobs and began a heavy schedule of rehearsing and playing area clubs full-time.


The resulting 1968 debut album Creedence Clearwater Revival struck a responsive note with the emerging underground pop culture press, which touted CCR as a band worthy of attention. More importantly, AM radio programmers around the United States took note when a song from the LP, "Suzie Q", received substantial airplay in the San Francisco Bay Area as well as on Chicago's WLS. Blues aficionados doubtlessly appreciated the similarities between CCR's tough style and R&B artists on the Chess and Vee-Jay labels.

"Suzie Q", the band's remake of a 1956 hit for rockabilly singer Dale Hawkins, went on to be the band's first single to crack the Top 40. It just missed the Top Ten at #11 and was Creedence's only hit not written by John Fogerty. Other singles included a cover of Screamin' Jay Hawkins' "I Put a Spell On You" and "Porterville", written during John Fogerty's Army Reserve stint.

After some eight years of making music together, the group was finally an 'overnight success'.


Peak success: 1969-70

While undertaking a steady string of live dates around the country to capitalize on their breakthrough, CCR also was hard at work on their second album Bayou Country at RCA Studios in Los Angeles. Released in January, 1969, and a #7 platinum hit, the record was the first in a string of hit albums and singles which continued for the next three years.

Bayou Country's seven songs were well-honed from Creedence's constant live playing. The album showed a distinct evolution in approach, much more simple and direct than the band's first release. The rollingly riverine "Proud Mary", backed with "Born On the Bayou", went to Number 2 on the national Billboard chart. It would eventually become group's most-covered song, with some 100 cover versions by other artists to date, including a hit version in 1971 by Ike and Tina Turner. Bob Dylan named it his favorite single of 1969. The album also featured a blistering remake of Little Richard's "Good Golly Miss Molly" and the band's nine-minute live-show closer, "Keep On Chooglin' ".

Only weeks later, in March, 1969, "Bad Moon Rising" backed with "Lodi" was released and peaked at #2 on the charts. The band's third album, Green River, followed in August and quickly went gold along with the single "Green River", which again reached #2 on the Billboard charts. The B-side of "Green River", "Commotion"—a one-chord two-step about the perils of city life—also peaked at #30. The bar-band story of "Lodi" became a popular staple on then-emerging FM radio.[citation needed] The band's emphasis on remakes of their old favorites continued with "The Night Time Is the Right Time", which found its way into the band's live set as a crowd sing-along.

Creedence continued to tour heavily including performances at the Atlanta Pop Festival and Woodstock. Their set was not included in the Woodstock film or its original soundtrack because Fogerty felt the band's performance was sub-par. (Several CCR tracks from the event were included in the 1994 commemorative box set.) The band also complained that they had to take the stage at three in the morning because The Grateful Dead had jammed far past their scheduled set time. By the time Creedence began playing—"the hottest shot on Earth at that moment," said Fogerty—many in the audience had gone to sleep. The Woodstock Music and Art Fair was an event held at Max Yasgurs 600 acre (2. ... This article is about the band. ...


It didn't matter. Creedence was busy perfecting material for a fourth album, Willy and the Poor Boys, released in November, 1969. "Down on the Corner", a good-time street-corner number, and the famously militant "Fortunate Son" climbed to #3 and #14 respectively by year's end. The album was Creedence in its classic form, featuring Fogerty originals and two reworked Leadbelly covers, "Cotton Fields" and "Midnight Special". Willy and the Poor Boys is the fourth album by American band Creedence Clearwater Revival, released in 1969 (see 1969 in music). ...

Cotton Fields is a song written by Huddie Ledbetter, more commonly known as Lead Belly. ...

The success of Willy and its single was the final touch on an amazing year for a remarkable band: no less than four hit singles and three full-length, top-selling albums. Few if any artists in 1969—or indeed in any year—could match CCR for stamina, creative output, and commercial success.


Just after the new year, 1970, CCR released yet another new double-sided 45, "Travellin' Band"/"Who'll Stop the Rain". The flip side was inspired, as John Fogerty tells it, by the band's experience at Woodstock. The speedy "Travellin' Band", however, bore enough similarities to Little Richard's "Good Golly, Miss Molly" to warrant a lawsuit by the song's publisher that was eventually settled out of court. In the meantime, the single had topped out at #2. The band also recorded its Saturday, January 31 live performance at the Coliseum in Oakland, California, which would later become a well-known live album and television special. By February, the unstoppable Creedence was featured on the cover of Rolling Stone, although only John Fogerty was interviewed in the accompanying article. Richard Wayne Penniman (born December 5, 1932), better known by the stage name Little Richard, is an African-American singer, songwriter, and pianist, who began performing in the 1940s and was a key figure in the transition from rhythm & blues to rock and roll in the mid-1950s. ... Good Golly, Miss Molly is a hit song recorded in 1958 by the American musician Little Richard. ... This article is about the magazine. ...


In April, 1970, Creedence was set to begin its first European tour. To support the upcoming live dates, Fogerty came up with "Up Around the Bend", a good-time party rocker, and the broody "Run Through the Jungle", about the burgeoning problem of societal violence in the United States. The single—written, recorded, and shipped in only a few days' time—went to #4 that spring, ensuring enthusiastic response from European live audiences and high commercial success in the U.S. and the rest of the world.


The band returned to Wally Heider's San Francisco studio in June to record what many consider the finest CCR album, Cosmo's Factory. The title was an in-joke about their various rehearsal facilities and factory work ethic over the years. (Drummer Doug Clifford's longtime nickname is "Cosmo", due to his keen interest in nature and all things cosmic.) The album contained the earlier Top 10 hits "Travellin' Band" and "Up Around the Bend" plus highly popular album tracks such as the opener "Ramble Tamble", an ambitious and snarling seven-minute cut about life in America with its "police on the corner, garbage on the sidewalk, actors in the White House." Wally Heider (1923 - 1989) was an American recording engineer and recording studio owner (Wally Heider Studios. ...

Up Around the Bend is a song recorded by the American band Creedence Clearwater Revival and written by the bands lead singer, guitarist and songwriter, John Fogerty. ...


Cosmo's was released in July, 1970, along with yet another #2 hit, "Lookin' Out My Back Door"/"Long As I Can See the Light". The cuts included an incisive eleven-minute jam of the 1968 R&B hit "I Heard It Through the Grapevine" and a nearly note-for-note homage to Roy Orbison's "Ooby Dooby". John Fogerty's musical range clearly had expanded. He now wove in slide guitar, keyboards, saxophones, tape effects, and layered vocal harmonies—and pushed himself vocally more than ever on "Long As I Can See the Light". The album, eleven songs in all, was Creedence's best seller and went straight to #1 on the Pop charts and #11 on Billboard's Soul Albums chart. Cosmos Factory is the fifth album by American band Creedence Clearwater Revival, released in 1970 (see 1970 in music). ...

By August, 1970, Creedence Clearwater Revival had amassed five No. 2 singles in the U.S., more than any act that topped the national charts. The band had Number One singles in many countries and had released four Top Ten albums in 18 months.


Decline and breakup: 1971-72

The Cosmo's Factory sessions had seen the stirrings of tensions within the foursome as the incessant touring and heavy recording schedules took their toll. John had literally taken control of the group in its business matters and its artistic output. The situation began to grate on Tom, Stu, and Doug, who wanted more of a say in the band's workings. John resisted, feeling that a 'democratic' process would threaten their success. Other issues included John's decision at a Nebraska gig that the band would no longer give encores at its live shows.


One decision made by John Fogerty as business manager for the band rankled his bandmates and would leave all of the band members without most of their hard-earned money and facing legal and financial hassles for years. Without the other three band member's knowledge, Fogerty agreed to a tax shelter scheme proposed by Saul Zaentz and his lawyers in which most of CCR band member's assets were moved into the Castle Bank of Nassau. Zaentz and his associates withdrew their assets before the bank eventually dissolved - along with monies of the four CCR band members. A series of lawsuits to recover the lost money began in 1978 and eventually ended with a California court awarding 8.6 million to the band members in April 1983. Very little of the money was actually recovered by the band members despite this legal victory.


Pendulum, released in December, 1970, was another top seller, spawning a Top 10 hit with "Have You Ever Seen the Rain?". The album marked yet another shift in the band's approach: gone was the wall of sound of Creedence's previous three albums. Production was dry and tight, even to the point of sounding restrained. The single's flip side, the ringing "Hey Tonight", was also a hit. Somewhat experimental was the closer track, "Rude Awakening #2", a bizarre and almost tuneless instrumental in which the band seemed to have thrown in every sound and effect they could imagine. Pendulum is the sixth album by American band Creedence Clearwater Revival, released in 1970 (see 1970 in music). ... Have You Ever Seen The Rain? is a song written by John Fogerty and released in 1970 in the album Pendulum of the American rock musical group Creedence Clearwater Revival. ... This article is about the music production effect. ...


But even continued musical innovation and success could not resolve the differences between John and Tom Fogerty. During the making of Pendulum Tom Fogerty, who had already quit the band several times in disgust but was talked into returning, finally left Creedence Clearwater Revival for good. The band members considered replacing Tom but never did. Early in 1971, John Fogerty informed a startled Cook and Clifford that the band would continue only by adopting a 'democratic' approach: each member would now write and sing his own material. Fogerty also would contribute only rhythm guitar to his bandmates' songs, a particularly hard slap in the face given their years of support for Fogerty's music. Cook and Clifford, who had wanted more of a voice in the band's business decisions, resisted this arrangement. Fogerty insisted they accept his terms or he would quit the band.


The CCR trio thus put its new work ethic to the test in the studio, releasing the Top 10 single "Sweet Hitch-Hiker" in July, 1971, backed with Stu Cook's "Door to Door". The new band toured both the U.S. and Europe that summer and autumn, with Cook's song a part of the live set. In spite of their continuing commercial success, however, relations between the three had become strained.


The band's final album, Mardi Gras, was released in April, 1972. It received mostly poor reviews and suffered comparatively weak sales. The 1971 hit single "Sweet Hitch-Hiker"/"Door to Door") was included on the album, but the only other Fogerty single, "Someday Never Comes" backed with Clifford's "Tearin' Up the Country", failed to crack even the US Top 20. It was the worst showing of any Creedence single since 1968. Mardi Gras is the seventh and final studio album by American band Creedence Clearwater Revival, released in 1972 (see 1972 in music). ...


Mardi Gras peaked at #12. Just after its release, Creedence embarked on a spring and summer tour of the U.S., Australia, and Japan, which would ultimately be their last.


By that point, John was not only at direct odds with his bandmates, but he had also come to see the group's relationship with Fantasy Records as onerous, feeling that label owner Zaentz had reneged on his promise to give the band a better contract. Stu Cook—who holds a degree in business—claimed that because of poor judgment on Fogerty's part, CCR had to abide by the worst record deal of any major American recording artist. It has been suggested that The Saul Zaentz Film Center be merged into this article or section. ...


On October 16, 1972, Fantasy Records and the band officially announced that Creedence Clearwater Revival was no more.


After Creedence

John Fogerty

Main article: John Fogerty

In 1973, John began his solo career with The Blue Ridge Rangers, his one-man band collection of country and gospel songs. Under his old Creedence contract, however, Fogerty owed Fantasy eight more records. In the end, he simply refused to work for the label any longer. The impasse was resolved only when Asylum Records' David Geffen bought Fogerty's contract for $1,000,000. His next major hit was Centerfield, a chart-topping success in 1985. On tour in 1986, however, Fogerty suffered complaints over his steadfast refusal to play Creedence songs live and suffered with recurring vocal problems which he blamed on having to testify in court. Fogerty's explanation for not playing CCR songs was that he would have had to pay performance royalties to copyright holder Saul Zaentz—and that it was "too painful" to revisit the music of his past.

John Fogerty also found himself entangled in new lawsuits with Zaentz over the song "The Old Man Down the Road" which was, according to Zaentz, a bald rewrite of CCR's "Run Through the Jungle". Since Fogerty had traded his rights to Creedence's songs in 1980 to cancel his remaining contractual obligations, Fantasy now owned the rights to "Run Through the Jungle" and sued Fogerty essentially for plagiarizing himself. While a jury ruled in his favor on this issue, Fogerty did lose in a defamation suit filed by Zaentz over the song "Zanz Kant Danz" and was forced to edit the recording.

Run Through the Jungle is a song recorded by the American band Creedence Clearwater Revival and written by the bands lead singer, guitarist and songwriter, John Fogerty. ...


In 1987, Fogerty began performing his CCR hits again, on an admonition from Bob Dylan that "if you don't, the whole world's gonna think 'Proud Mary' is Tina Turner's song". At a Fourth of July benefit for Vietnam veterans, Fogerty finally ran through the list of Creedence hits—beginning with "Born On the Bayou" and ending with "Proud Mary"—to an ecstatic audience. He retreated from music again in the late 80s but returned in 1997 with the Grammy-winning Blue Moon Swamp.

Tom Fogerty

Tom Fogerty released several solo albums, though none reached the success of CCR. Tom Fogerty (November 9, 1941, in Berkeley, California – September 6, 1990, in Scottsdale, Arizona) was a musician most known as the guitarist in Creedence Clearwater Revival, and was the elder brother of John Fogerty, the lead singer and guitar player in that band. ...


Tom's 1974 solo album Zephyr National was the last to feature the four original band members. A few of the songs sound very much in the Creedence style, particularly the aptly-titled "Joyful Resurrection". All four members did play on the song, but John recorded his part to the mix separately.


In September 1990, Tom Fogerty died of AIDS, which he contracted via a blood transfusion during back surgery. John and Tom never resolved the bitter estrangement that followed their falling out in CCR. Doug Clifford rented a house in Scottsdale Arizona near Tom to be near him. Stu Cook visited often. Of his three former bandmates, brother John spent the least time with Tom in his dying days. For other uses, see AIDS (disambiguation). ...

Fantasy Records

After Creedence, Fantasy Records released several greatest-hits packages and curiosities such as 1975's Pre-Creedence, a compilation album of The Golliwogs' early recordings. Fantasy also released the highly successful Chronicle, Vol. 1, a collection of Creedence's twenty hit singles, in 1976. Several years later, the label released a live recording entitled The Royal Albert Hall Concert. Unfortunately, the 1970 performance was recorded at Oakland, California, not at the Royal Albert Hall in London, England as stated on the sleeve.

The success of Creedence Clearwater Revival made Fantasy and Saul Zaentz a great deal of money. Indeed, Fantasy built a new headquarters building in 1971 at 2600 Tenth Street in Berkeley, California.[2] Zaentz also used his wealth to produce a number of successful films including Best Picture Oscar winners One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Amadeus, and The English Patient. In 2004, he sold Fantasy to Concord Records. As a goodwill gesture, Concord honored the unfulfilled contractual promises Fantasy made nearly forty years ago, finally paying the band a higher royalty rate on their sales.

Legacy

Creedence Clearwater Revival were somewhat unfashionable in rock circles during their heyday because they concentrated on tightly-focused, well-crafted, and short songs created to appeal to everyone. Unlike most other rock artists of the day, they eschewed drug use and did not contribute significantly to progressive activism—although they were all against the war in Vietnam, and they contributed substantial money to the American Indian Movement. AIM logo AIM flag The American Indian Movement (AIM), is a Native American activist organization in the United States. ...


Even in the immediate years after breaking up, Creedence's stature as one of the great American rock bands was secure. The music went on to influence entire genres such as heartland rock, country rock, alt-country, and even punk and heavy metal musicians revere the band. Decades later, CCR's music remains in heavy rotation on oldies and classic rock radio stations. Fogerty's songs, considered classics of the rock form, have been covered by multiple artists, and many artists express both admiration and envy over Creedence's mastery of the two-and-a-half minute hit single. "Fortunate Son" in particular has become a universal anthem against war, class privilege, and jingoism. Creedence songs frequently appear in films and on television, and indeed the band continues to attract young fans born long after the band split up. In the late 1970s and 1980s, one of the most popular forms of rock and roll was heartland rock. ... For the geological term, see Country rock (geology). ...

Even so, the surviving members resist all suggestion that they reunite as a group. There have been "unofficial" reunion performances by the band, however. All four members jammed together at Tom Fogerty's wedding on October 19, 1980. John, Stu, and Doug performed at their 20th high school reunion in 1983, but they performed as their original incarnation, The Blue Velvets. But with the new round of lawsuits in the 80s and 90s between John, Saul Zaentz, and Stu and Doug, the post-1972 animosity has only deepened.


Creedence Clearwater Revival was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1993 on the first ballot. Tom Fogerty's widow, Tricia, brought the urn containing his ashes for the ceremony and expected a Creedence reunion. Tom's son Jeff, a professional musician, was also on hand to take his father's place as rhythm guitarist for the traditional post-awards live set. John, however, would not perform with fellow bandmates Stu and Doug, instead having them barred from the stage while he played with an all-star band that included Bruce Springsteen and Robbie Robertson.
