I couldn't believe how great this guy still sounds? I wonder how old he is? The man can still bring it, that's for sure. If you get the chance, go, he is amazing in concert.

They are both amazing.

Good stuff. Fogerty is 63 and sounds great.

Fogerty was my first hero and still one of my main men. I think he's around 62 years young and still looks and sounds great

Saw him in '06 and was blown away. One of the best sets I've ever seen/heard. Was 3rd row center at Montage in Scranton, an outdoor shed notorious for a strict "no standing" policy. Ushers supplied everybody in the first 3 rows with yellow wrist bands. Said Mr. Fogerty was requesting that everyone in the first few rows come up to the front of the stage where he could see us. AMAZING time. As evidenced by any youtube video you check out, he hasn't lost a step. Voice/playing was still SPOT ON. And, besides Mick Jagger, I've never seen a 60+ year old with that much energy. Almost all classic CCR stuff. Also, bring earplugs, as it was one of the loudest concerts I've ever attended. If you dig CCR, and JF ever tours near you, do not miss his show.

When I first heard CCR in '68 I thought they were from the south. I could hardly believe it when I learned they were from California. They sure played some swampy rock and roll.

CCR was the first concert act I ever bought tickets to see...back in 1973. Tony Joe White & Tower Of Power (pre-Lenny Williams...they had a white guy as lead singer) were the opening acts.

Unfortunately (in retrospect), it was when CCR was a trio, but, hell, I didn't know the difference, they sounded great to me at the time. (it was only when I heard the double live LP from that tour did I realize how empty the sound was in certain parts of some songs)

Always loved their swampy, slightly bluesy sound.

CCR was one band that could have gone on way into the 70s and 80s but the falling out between John Fogerty and Clifford & Cook was just too big.

I think they were still on speaking terms in the early 80s but by the time of their induction into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame, all hell broke loose. Apparently John did not let the other guys join onstage for the finale jam, and they walked out of the ceremony in protest. Then there were lawsuits and legnthy court appearances which nailed the coffin shut and now they no longer have anything to do with each other. Too bad.

Fogerty pulled a quick move a few years ago when Fantasy Records went up for sale. Saul Zantz, and Fogerty had been at war for years over his ownership of John's songs. It was one of the worst deals ever signed by a band, and Fantasy was a small country music label. CCR shot to the top, and Zantz was the only one making money. Fogerty had some folks buy the label when it went up for sale. The contract was then put in his name. He finally owns the rights to his music, and the label which his last CD was released on. Stu Cook, and Doug Clifford have to pay him every show they play under Credence Clearwater Revisited. It is a shame that he didn't talk to his brother Tom before he died due to all the fighting over the CCR name. They didn't speak for over 20 yrs. John seems happy now though, and puts on an incredible show touring now more then he ever has.

Saw Fogerty a few times. A great show and a person who truly enjoys what he's doing. Even like his new album, um, excuse me, CD. He was sued a while back for sounding too much like himself. Still laugh at that one. Didn't know he was in on the buy-out of the new label, the way I heard him tell it, the new owner finally gave him what he deseved and so he was happy and making good music again.

I read an interview with John where he said he went to his brother's death bed and Tom's last words to him were "Saul Zantz is my best friend."

Love Fogerty. Just starting to Re-discover CCR. Man were they great. Love the whole "Bayou Country" album.

I've always thought a John Fogarty/Dickey Betts, acoustic, collaboration/Tour, "Storytellers" type of thing, would be awesome. They could swap stories and play each others music very easily. Imagine the history. Imho, That...would be worth twice the price of admission.

Always wanted to hear Gregg sing "Born On The Bayou." It'd be a natural.

I truly hope John, and Tom got to talk before Tom's death. I only know what I've read. Saul did put CCR on the scene.

Interesting that years ago wikipedia.org even listed Creedence Clearwater Revival as a "Southern rock band". I remember this from when I wrote a review of Fogerty for epinions.com and was researching for the story. I see wikipedia has now corrected the error. Yeah, listening to them, who would have ever thought they were from the Bay area? And people forget, they played Woodstock. Where is the footage? Maybe they were never filmed...........I've never seen of heard anything from that show.

You have to dig a bit deeper to find it, but Creedence Clearwater Revival's Woodstock set is available complete as a soundboard audio, and partial as video. They performed right after the Grateful Dead, Mountain and Canned Heat, whose sets were also buried by the Woodstock film people.

If you go here you will find a recent audio torrent of their set which you can download:

http://www.dimeadozen.org/torrents-details.php?id=220865

If you read the information you will see that some of the tracks were already released on the 25th anniversary box set WOODSTOCK THREE DAYS OF PEACE AND MUSIC (1994). These tracks will not be downloadable here but can be added if you have the abovementioned box set.

As far as video, no CCR tunes have been officially released. However in bootleg circles, several songs have been presented and you might be able to find them on youtube or through a trade.

Lets see what I found:
