CCR, Weezer, Collective Soul, The Beach Boys and more Rockin' Christmas for a Cure
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame rhythm section (drums and bass respectively) with their latest project Creedence Clearwater Revisited contributed a version of the Christmas classic "Run Rudolph Run" for inclusion on the compilation CD which serves to benefit the JDRF.
The 27 track collection also includes holiday recordings from Weezer, Collective Soul, The Beach Boys, Jon Anderson of Yes, and others. "Run Rudolph Run," written by Johnny Marks and Marvin Brodie, was first recorded by Chuck Berry in 1958. Creedence Clearwater Revisited's fresh take on "Run Rudolph Run" is one that gives the holidays a rousing, classic rock, swampy flair.
Juvenile diabetes (Type 1) is a devastating auto immune disease which can strike children and adults suddenly, but lasts a lifetime. Approximately 24 million Americans have diabetes and this number is on the rise. Evidence suggests that 1 in 3 Americans born in 2000 may develop some form of diabetes in their lifetime and, to date, there is no cure.
Hope for the Holidays is currently available at national retail outlets including Best Buy and can also be found on www.Amazon.com, www.CDBaby.com and is available for download on iTunes. All profits will benefit the JDRF.
About Creedence Clearwater Revisited: Stu Cook and Doug "Cosmo" Clifford may not have initially intended it, but their band Creedence Clearwater Revisited has taken on a startling life of its own. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame rhythm section (bass and drums respectively) from the legendary group Creedence Clearwater Revival launched the Creedence Clearwater Revisited project in 1995 to once again perform live Creedence Clearwater Revival hits touchstones of a generation. Creedence Clearwater Revisited has since performed up to 100 shows a year and released the RIAA platinum certified CD Recollection.
