Open Letter by Stu Cook

Dear Creedence Fans:

        We, Stu Cook and Doug "Cosmo" Clifford, two of the founding members
of Creedence Clearwater Revival, are coming to Europe in May and June to
perform with our new band Creedence Clearwater Revisited.  We formed the
band last summer to once gain perform live the CCR songs that we recorded
and love to play live and which are enjoyed by fans worldwide.  As you know,
no original CCR member individually or as a group has toured to play these
songs since Creedence Clearwater Revival broke up in 1972.  John Fogerty
declined to join us in reviving our music and touring the world.  We elected
to go forward without him. 

        It has now come to our attention that some of our upcoming Creedence
Clearwater Revisited shows may have been incorrectly promoted in Europe and
some fans may think that Creedence Clearwater Revival has re-formed and is
now coming to tour Europe.  This is incorrect.  The band that is coming to
tour Europe is not Creedence Clearwater Revival, but rather our new band
Creedence Clearwater Revisited.  Creedence Clearwater Revisited is made up
of us, original CCR members Doug "Cosmo" Clifford on drums and Stu Cook on
bass, and we are joined by Elliot Easton on lead guitar (formerly of The
Cars), Steve Gunner on keyboards and John Tristao filling big shoes on lead

        We believe that from a live performance standpoint, Creedence
Clearwater Revisited is better than any band we have every played in. 
However, we certainly do not want anyone to be mislead into thinking that
the original Creedence Clearwater Revival has re-formed.  That is not the
case.  If anyone has been mislead, we invite you to return your ticket to
the promoter that sold it to you for a full refund.  Of course, we prefer
that you come check out the show and judge for yourself.  We are confident
that you will agree with the nearly one hundred thousand fans that have seen
Creedence Clearwater Revisited concerts here in the United States that our
new band is fantastic and it is great to experience the music live again. 
If not, ask for your money back.  Of course, it is not politics and
personnel, but good music and good times that wins the day.
