Rightly called the saddest story in rock 'n' roll history, this Creedence biography--newly updated with stories from band members, producers, business associates, close friends, and families--recounts the tragic and triumphant tale of one of America's most beloved bands. Hailed as the great American rock band from 1968 to 1971, Creedence Clearwater Revival captured the imaginations of a generation with classic hits like "Proud Mary, " "Down on the Corner, " "Green River, " "Born on the Bayou, " and "Who'll Stop the Rain." Mounting tensions among bandmates over vibrant guitarist and lead vocalist John Fogerty's creative control led to the band's demise. Tracing the lives of four musicians who redefined an American roots-rock sound with unequaled passion and power, this music biography exposes the bitter end and abandoned talent of a band left crippled by debt and dissension.

A bit of a tough emotional read as the band constantly struggles to right the contractual wrongs, with their unforgiving (but supportive) record company. A must read for all CCR fans - we get more of the stories that surrounded the band for the last 30 years. Nice to get in on the secrets.
