Bad Moon Revisited

A band called Creedence Clearwater Revisited plays Route 66 Casino on Friday night. Their repertoire includes a heap of tunes by seminal Americana band Creedence Clearwater Revival, but don’t get the two confused. There will be nary a mention of anyone named Fogerty at this upcoming concert, though I'm sure the latter folks are partially responsible for writing the tuneage being explored on this and subsequent tours. Don’t get confused; it’s a familiar story in rocanrol: Founding members leave a once-mighty band. Sometimes, those remaining still wanna rock out for silver and other treasure. They want to use a name that listeners will be familiar with, buy tickets for and, when called upon, remember favorite songs by … But courtroom hijinks usually ensue. In this case, Stu Cook and Doug Clifford, the rhythm section of Southern rock giant CCR, eventually won the right to use part of the name of a band fronted by John Fogerty and his brother Tom. The whole CCR debacle has been one of the most acrimonious adventures in the history of electrified guitar music, but the current lineup continues to rely on John’s output and Tom’s memory for the meaty parts of its performances. In other words, they’re a great cover band. Creedence Clearwater Revisited plays Legends Theater (14500 Central SW) on Friday, June 13, starting at 8pm. Tickets for this all-ages gig range from $25 and $40. (August March)
