Any lovers of CCR? John Forgerty's going on tour and passing by in November.  I'm think I'll be checking this out.

I love CCR's music.  It's oldies AOR stations that I hate.  You can't get any more than, like, three Credence songs.

Didn't CCR sue John Fogerty, for essentially sounding like himself?

Also worth nothing, CCR's "Who'll Stop Bahrain," would make an excellent anthem should Bahrain decide to join the current shia/sunni festivities in iraq.
