John Fogerty At Least Open To A Creedence Clearwater Revival Reunion

For the first time in over 20 years, there’s finally now at least a glimmer of hope that Creedence Clearwater Revival may reunite one day. Rolling Stone reported, in a recent interview with the Calgary Herald, Fogerty says that he no longer feels an intense bitterness toward bassist Stu Cook and drummer Doug Clifford.

The band broke up almost 40 years ago in 1972. Yeah, you could say there has been some bad blood since. The guitarist refused to appear with Cook and Clifford when the band was inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1993 and he sued the duo in 1997 for performing under the name Creedence Clearwater Revisited.

“Years ago, I looked at people and I was so full of some sort of emotion and I’d say, ‘Absolutely not!’,” Fogerty says. “I have to admit, people have asked me more recently, and even though I have no idea how such a series of events would come to pass, I can tell that there isn’t the bombast in my voice, in the denial, in the refusal. It’s more like, ‘Well, I dunno.’ Never say never is I guess what people tell you. In this life, all kinds of strange things come to pass.”

As of yet, Fogerty has no plans to pursue a reunion, but it sounds like he is at least open to a discussion down the line. “Realizing that it doesn’t really kick up a big firestorm of emotion, it kind of suggests that at least if someone started talking I’d sit still long enough to listen,” he says. Of course, a full reunion of the original lineup isn’t possible because rhythm guitarist Tom Fogerty, John’s brother, passed away in 1990 (he died of AIDS, after contracting HIV from a blood transfusion).

A CCR reunion almost 40 years later would be interesting to say the least. Let’s keep our fingers crossed!
