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.

Having grown up with Creedence Clear Water Revival this book took me into the lives of those that made the music. The book took me on a journey of discovery. It laid bare the trials and tribulations of the band. It is written in a style that makes it easy to read and one never feels as though the writer is struggling for rhythm. It was an enjoyable and fascinating insight into one of the greatest rock bands ever. Garth.
