I love CCR, but I would feel like Coachella was turning into a state fair if I saw them on the bill.

You'll have to overcome an ocean of bad blood to get them to even speak to each other again.
John even kept the other two off the stage at their R&R HOF induction.
Oh, and Tom passed away years ago.

You'd have a better chance getting Pink Floyd to reunite than getting the living three CCR members on the same stage.

I love the old CCR, but these days, John Fogerty belongs at a second tier Vegas lounge, not Coachella.

And how exactly does CCR work at Coachella, Tom?

Do you know what happened to the hippies? They became Wall Street. CCR is gone. RIP.

Will Duane Eddy be a guest? Are any of Buck Owen's Buckaroos still alive - short trek from Bakersfield?

The 3 core members are all still alive and seperately playing live gigs at a high level.

Bad blood would be quickly solved if John picked up the phone or visited Stu/Doug.

What's funny is how John has gone decades saying how he was ripped off, while at the same time declining a very big pile of money sitting infront of him. He still plays the "victim-card" in interviews, though the CCR label is under completely new ownership for close to a deace and all his royalties have been re-instated.

I read an article last year where he said that he was open to a reunion tour.

welp i just found this and it was written a few weeks ago


Two founding members of Creedence Clearwater Revival have ruled out ever reuniting with frontman John Fogerty, insisting his offer of an olive branch is "20 years too late".

Fogerty, the main songwriter for the band, quit the group in 1971 at the height of its popularity, and has been at war with his former bandmates Stu Cook and Doug Clifford ever since.


In July last year, rumours of a possible reunion were sparked when Fogerty admitted he hadn't ruled out a comeback and he'd "sit still long enough to listen" if an offer was on the table.

But Cook and Clifford have now spoken out to scupper fans' hopes of a reconciliation, insisting there is too much bad blood between the musicians for it to work.

Cook tells Uncut magazine, "Leopards don't change their spots. This is just an image-polishing exercise by John. My phone certainly hasn't rung."

And drummer Clifford tells the publication, "It might have been a nice idea 20 years ago, but it's too late."

Im gonna go cry my self to sleep now, knowing that i will never see them reunite

Fogerty killed it at outside lands last year. One of my favorite performances of the year. Hell of an afternoon that I would love to revisit

Agreed. The old fucker still has it.

Other old people hating in this thread are mad because they don't still have it.

I'm sure he wants to stay solo since he was robbed of royalties of Ccr music for so long.

Just get Fogerty. His set at Outside Lands was a damn good time.

He's been getting full CCR royalties for 5 years. There's several CCR archival projects he could make good money on if he gave a green light.

His take for CCR reunion would be a multiple of what he's getting to play theaters. Theaters where he's started to play albums in full to spur ticket sales.

I suppose it's somewhat to his credit (at least in my book) that he'd rather play theaters on his own terms than do a cash grab to make some bigger money by touring with guys that he doesn't even speak to. And, the bitterness seems to be on both sides, not just his. (And, I think both sides have some valid reasons....it's a shame in many ways, but I really don't think this one will ever be fixed.)
