Rockford, Ill.– Illinois’ largest street festival, On the Waterfront, announced today that the classic rock band, Creedence Clearwater Revisited presented by 96.7 The Eagle will be the Saturday night headliner of the Great Lawn stage at 29th annual On the Waterfront festival.
Creedence Clearwater Revival’s distinctive swamp rock went against the grain of the ’60s psychedelic San Francisco and won a worldwide following and numerous gold and multi-platinum singles and albums. It was rebellious, sometimes militant rock, co-opted into three minute radio gems that remain a rock radio and movie soundtrack staple.
After Creedence Clearwater Revival disbanded in 1972, Stu Cook and Doug “Cosmo” Clifford, who had played together since junior high remained close. They formed a production company together before heading off for separate musical projects. When those projects ended, Cosmo and Stu hooked up again. Realizing both missed playing live Creedence music that had been lying dormant. With ex-bandmate John Fogerty previously calling for a boycott of and refusing to publicly perform Creedence Clearwater Revival music , Doug and Stu decided to put together their own band to perform the songs in concert.
Since then, Revisited has been playing classics like “Susie Q,” “Lodi,” “Proud Mary,” “Down On The Corner,” “Fortunate Son,” “Bad Moon” and “Who’ll Stop The Rain” throughout North America, South America, New Zealand, Europe and Asia. Revisited’s natural feel for this timeless music is evident on their 2008 album, RECOLLECTION, which is an exciting and satisfying new chapter in this legacy.
