John Fogerty Changes Tune on Creedence Clearwater Revival Reunion

John Fogerty Changes Tune on Creedence Clearwater Revival Reunion

In a recent interview with CBS News, Creedence Clearwater Revival front-man John Fogerty said he was not totally against reuniting his legendary band.

But, in a new interview with Classic Rock Revisited, it sounds like Fogerty believes a reunion will never happen.  John Fogerty says:

"You can’t do it unless everyone says it is okay to do it; that is how I approached it.  It didn’t look like that was ever going to happen.  George Harrison had an interesting statement about reunions.  The same statement works for me:  There can be no reunion as long as Tom is dead."

Tom Fogerty, John's brother and CCR guitarist, died in 1990.

That does not mean that Fogerty will never play with the other members of Creedence, Stu Cook and Doug Clifford.  But, if they did, it would be surprising if they used the Creedence Clearwater Revival name.

Fogerty just released an album, Wrote a Song For Everyone.  On the album, Fogerty performs his classics with various notable musicians.
