Will Creedence Reunite? (Episode 30)

How long is too long?  In Episode 28, Derringer Discoveries covered a band that reunited with all four original members after a 40-year break.  Now, for this episode, the band under the microscope is Creedence Clearwater Revival, also known as Creedence or CCR.  They have been separated for 50 years!

CCR's line-up was Tom Fogerty, John Fogerty, Stu Cook, and Doug "Cosmo" Clifford.  Tom was John's older brother.  CCR broke up in 1972, not long after Tom quit the band.

Even though they have not been a functioning band for 50 years, they are still one of the Top 300 bands in the world, based on Spotify listeners.  Without a doubt, you will know their songs.  They even had a hit with Marvin Gaye's "I Heard It Through the Grapevine" from their biggest selling album, Cosmo's Factory.

Tom has been dead since 1990.  The other three have been estranged since 1972.  In this episode, Team Derringer - Laura, Alton, Paul, and Dave - undertake five tasks: (1) A countdown of seven fantastic CCR songs spanning their seven albums; (2) Disclosure of CCR's #1 song, according to Spotify listeners; (3) Did they Jump the Shark; (4) Did they Cross the Rubicon; and (5) Will they reunite?

Stay for the Post Episode Bonus as Team Derringer conducts an exclusive interview with Neil Richards of the UK-based band The Carousels who have been together with the same four members since 1994.  Hear snippets of some of The Carousel's best songs, as selected by Derringer Discoveries.  We also uncover the compelling stories behind the songs as told by Neil.
