Transcript of Creedence Clearwater Revival: Behind the music

Creedence Clearwater Revival or CCR was a classic rock group during the late 60's and early 70's. They were one of the few well-know classic rock groups of the time due to the "British Invasion" The band consisted of John Fogerty-lead guitar and vocals, Tom Fogerty-rythym guitar, Doug Clifford-Drums and Stu Cook on bass.
