John Fogerty Open To Creedence Clearwater Revival Reunion
John Fogerty remains open to working with his surviving Creedence Clearwater Revival bandmates. Fogerty, who'll releases his new star-studded solo album, Wrote A Song For Everyone, on May 28th, told Charlie Rose during an interview with CBS This Morning, that contrary to years past, he would be amenable to working with his high school buddies -- drummer Doug Clifford and bassist Stu Cook -- saying, "I think it's a possibility in the future. It's not something I'm actively seeking, but I'm not totally against the idea either. It just seems like I always hear that's not going to happen."
When we last caught up with Stu Cook, he told us that 40 years after the band's split, he and Doug Clifford still don't understand why Fogerty has such ill will towards them: "It's sort of a mutual, unspoken, unwritten agreement that we seem to have that I guess is sort of 'live and let live' -- although frankly, we don't know why he's pissed off. Pretty near every situation that he's not liked over the past 30-plus years has been done by his own hand. It's pretty hard to blame the rhythm section when you're the singer-songwriter-producer-guitarist and manager."
