No Revival Of Creedence Clearwater Revival

(Gibson) Two former members of Creedence Clearwater Revival say fans shouldn't get too excited about John Fogerty's recent claim that he would consider an offer to get back with the band if one was put to him.

In July 2011 Fogerty told the Calgary Herald, "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." But bass player Stu Cook tells Uncut Magazine in the February issue that there will be no such reunion. "Leopards don't change their spots," Cook said. "This is just an image-polishing exercise by John. My phone certainly hasn't rung." Drummer Doug Clifford added, "It might have been a nice idea 20 years ago, but it's too late."

In the '90s Fogerty sued Cook and Clifford to stop them touring under the name Creedence Clearwater Revisited (the courts ruled in Cook and Clifford's favor), and he refused to appear with them at their induction at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1993. more on this story
