"Michael Eavis has been alluding to a mysterious - possibly American - supergroup, who will be reforming after 35 years together. It could be one of the above. Or it could be someone else. Any ideas? He reckons we'll never guess "in a million years".

Hi!
Can you explain a little more? Here in Spain we have no idea about this matter!
When you say "could be one of the above", what do you mean?
Thanks from Spain

What do I think?

It's thousands of miles between the Glastonbury and Canada ... and unless the folks at Glastonbury are planning a split-screen video feed of CCRv from Regina ... there won't find Doug or Stu in the same venue with JCF ...

Move on nothing here to see anymore.
Band has more fun with new lineup

'CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVISITED'

Saturday

8 p.m.

Casino Regina Show Lounge
Music isn't a high priority for Stu Cook these days. The former Creedence Clearwater Revival bass player now counts hiking, golf and spending time with his wife among his hobbies, quite a departure from when he was churning out hits with CCR like "Down on the Corner," "Fortunate Son," and "Proud Mary."

"I've been involved in the music business and been playing music since I was a teenager," says Cook. "I'm 62 now and there are a lot of other things I'm now able to do and want to do besides music 24-7, 365."

Not that he's given it up altogether. After CCR bitterly disbanded in the early 1970s, Cook and drummer Doug 'Cosmo' Clifford continued to play together in various projects, and then formed Creedence Clearwater Revisited in 1995 with singer John Tristao, guitarist Tal Morris and multi-instrumentalist Steve Gunner.

"Doug and I get all the music we need in our lives through this project, which was sort of the underlying desire when we started," Cook says. "This was not meant to be a new career like we had when we were 22."

Yet, the new incarnation has brought back the first generation of fans along with a new generation that spans the globe. Cook says it's the quality of their catalogue that has made the Revisited project viable.

"The songs are fairly timeless. John (Fogerty) wrote great songs for the band and we made great recordings. They're simple, they're direct, and most importantly of all, just about any band can learn how to play them," he says. "When we haven't been out there playing, thousands of other bands were doing it in our stead."

While Cook says he's never been nostalgic for the original line-up, playing CCR's classics again stirred up memories.

"It was sort of deja vu to get up and play all these songs in front of an audience."

But the new dynamic of Revisited comes without the problems Cook experienced with CCR or when Fogerty took Cook and Clifford to court for using an almost similar stage name. Even though Fogerty lost, it's clear there are still hard feelings.

"There's definitely a new feel; it's a lot more fun than when we were playing with him," Cook says. "There was just a tremendous amount of tension, you know, it was happening in real time. We didn't know what was happening next. There were successes; there were failures. Good things that happened and not so good things, whereas this has all been pretty much good things."

Cook has nothing but praise for the Revisited musicians, praising Tristao as a better front man than Fogerty.

"John Fogerty in his day was the tops. Just play 'Travelin' Band' and listen to the man sing," says Cook, but adds that was more than 35 years ago. "John Tristao is a much stronger singer today. He has great body language and he puts on a hell of a show. That wasn't part of the original band for sure."

With things going so well, Cook laughs at the mention of a CCR reunion tour, a recent trend with other major rock acts.

"I'm not looking for one. We have a great band, we have a lot of fun, we make a decent living and don't have any of grief that would be associated with trying to hook up with our old pal."
