Nothing to do with their being deserving of the Hall of Fame--they are--but this band has two bits of interesting trivia attached to it. First, John Fogerty is probably the only musician to be sued for plagarizing his own music (his solo efforts apparently matched the stuff he wrote for CCR too closely); and second, according to "The Book of Rock Lists," they had FOUR number two songs, but NO number ones!

I always wondered why their version of Screamin' Jay Hawkins' "I Put a Spell on You" never was more popular than it was

On a slightly more serious note, I love Creedence. I read a post that said they had a T.V. show when they were around. I certainly never heard anything about that, and count me amongst those who are quite interested! Someone please give me the details about this. Can I get a copy of it somehwere? Is it on Youtube? Slide a bit of info my way on this, if anyone has a minute.

First off, to Mike, who asked what kind of a name is Cheesecrop, well... not much of a name when you think about it. Just sort of a sily name. Nothing less, nothing more.

CCR were the biggest band in America from 1969-1970 if not from 1968-1971. Saw John Fogerty in concert recently, he still rocks!!

Could CCR have inspired The Clash? Listen to the first few seconds of the CCR song "Walk on the Water" and tell me if you hear "London Calling"

I put CCR right behind the Beatles......this band was the biggest selling band from mid 1969 to 1971...when the best rock groups produced their best stuff... outselling The Beatles, Stones, Led Zeppelin you name it. What this band accomplished in a very short time [from 1969 to 1971] was amazing and may not be repeated in our lifetime. Fogerty and Paul Rogers had the best rock vocals of all time.

No ones giving reasons why Chicago isn't in, or Mitch Ryder either.

RIP, Saul Zaentz, CCR's manager and the man who feuded with John Fogerty, over claims that JF plagiarized himself.
