CCR was an American rock band active in the late 1960s and early 1970s whose members had played together since 1959, first as the Blue Velvets and later as the Golliwogs.

John Fogerty, Doug Clifford (drums), and Stu Cook (bass) met at Portola Junior High School in El Cerrito, California. Calling themselves the Blue Velvets, the trio began playing instrumentals and “jukebox standards”.
Tom Fogerty soon joined the band, and in 1964 they signed with Fantasy Records. By 1968, AM radio programmers around the US took note when their covers of the 1956 rockabilly song “Susie Q” and “I Put A Spell On You”.

After their breakthrough, Creedence began touring and started work on their second album, Bayou Country (1969) which contained the hits “Proud Mary” and “Born On The Bayou”.
The band’s third album, Green River, followed in August 1969 and went gold along with singles “Green River”, “Bad Moon Rising” and “Lodi”.

The band played in August 1969 at the Woodstock Music Festival. Their set was not included in the Woodstock film or soundtrack because John Fogerty felt the band’s performance was subpar.

The band’s fourth album, Willy and the Poor Boys, was released in November 1969, featuring the hits “Down on the Corner” and “Fortunate Son” and “Midnight Special” (a Lead Belly cover).

Creedence released another double a-side hit, “Travelin’ Band” and “Who’ll Stop the Rain” in January 1970. In April 1970, John Fogerty wrote “Up Around The Bend” and “Run Through The Jungle”.
Cosmo’s Factory was released in July 1970, which included “Lookin’ Out My Back Door”, “Long as I Can See the Light” and an eleven-minute jam of the 1968 Marvin Gaye “I Heard It Through the Grapevine”.

Pendulum, released in December 1970, was another top seller, spawning a Top 10 hit with “Have You Ever Seen The Rain?”; also contained “Hey Tonight”.

Tom Fogerty decided he had had enough of his younger brother and resigned from CCR in early 1971; the group became a trio, but eventually broke up completely on October 16, 1972 due to animosities between Fogerty and the others.

John Fogerty began a successful solo career, the others did not.

Tom Fogerty died, age 48 at his home in Scottsdale, Arizona in September 1990 from an AIDS complication, which he contracted via a tainted blood transfusion he received while undergoing back surgery.
