On Friday CCR's John Fogerty Says He Tried To Reconcile With Brother Tom was a top story. Here is the recap: (Classic Rock) John Fogerty has discussed his attempts to reconcile with his brother Tom in the 1980s. The pair fell out when Creedence Clearwater Revival imploded in 1972, and their relationship remained cold until soon before Tom's death in 1990.

But frontman John says he wanted to settle his differences with the guitarist - if only for the sake of their mother. Fogerty writes in an excerpt from his memoir Fortunate Son: My Life, My Music: "I'd think about Tommy and Jimmy Dorsey, how they had a feud for years, but they reunited and their mother was so happy.

He suggested that each of them wrote down the issues they had against the other, then they could work through them one by one. His own contained eight points, and started with the fact that his brother had sued him over song ownership in 1978. But Tom denied it had happened. Read more - here.
