Creedence Clearwater Revival (CCR) was a quite possibly one of the most popular American bands in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s. They enjoyed huge success in the United States and after the Beatles split up, they picked up even more momentum and became world famous. They group consisted of John Fogerty, Tom Fogerty, Stu Cook and Doug Clifford. The group released seven albums and a myriad of hit singles in just 4 short years.

CCR was responsible for giving us songs like Bad Moon Rising, Proud Mary and Who’ll Stop the Rain. They were just about one of the only groups able to resonate with hippies, rednecks and country fans. Bruce Springsteen once stated, “They weren’t the hippest bad in the world, just the best.” Quite a complement coming from Springsteen.
