Day 10 of #RocktoberMusicFest2019
I waffled back and forth trying to decide which band I wanted to use for today’s post. I eventually settled on this one. Even though I waffled, I am sure you will enjoy it.
Wikipedia tells us this about Creedence Clearwater Revival:
Creedence Clearwater Revival was an American rock band active in the late 1960s and early 1970s which consisted of lead vocalist, lead guitarist, and primary songwriter John Fogerty; his brother rhythm guitarist Tom Fogerty; bassist Stu Cook; and drummer Doug Clifford. These members had played together since 1959, first as The Blue Velvets and later as The Golliwogs. Their musical style encompassed roots rock, swamp rock, and blues rock. They played in a Southern rock style, despite their San Francisco Bay Area origin, with lyrics about bayous, catfish, the Mississippi River, and other popular elements of Southern United States iconography, as well as political and socially conscious lyrics about topics including the Vietnam War. The band performed at the 1969 Woodstock Festival in Upstate New York.
CCR reminds me of my oldest brother, Dave. I sure do miss him!
Here are 10 of their songs:
- Have You Ever Seen The Rain?
- Fortunate Son
- Green River
- I Put A Spell On You
- Lookin Out My Back Door

Do you have a favorite CCR tune? Have you seen them or John Fogerty in concert?
