Why Creedence Clearwater Revival is the Greatest Band Ever
I like some of his books but Stephen King and I wouldn’t agree on many things. One thing we both like is Creedence Clearwater Revival.
King has stated CCR is the most underrated rock band in the genre
King has stated CCR is the most underrated rock band in the genre. I’ll add I think CCR is the greatest band in any genre throughout history.
It’s what I like to listen to as I’m driving flat-out 80 miles per hour on the Interstate. It’s definitely “mood music” and along with the Rolling Stones bridged a generational divide with my father (he liked both bands).
Pitchfork.com has a link explaining Creedence lives on in through several movies about the Vietnam War, even though band members believe their songs were mistaken as anti-war anthems.
The group was short lived. Differences between members brought a string of hits to an end within 5 years, however. The music only grows in stature over the decades. What do you think of CCR’s place in music history?
