Creedence Clearwater Revival is the debut studio album by American rock band Creedence Clearwater Revival, released in 1968. While "Suzie Q" proved to be a hit, the band had played for years as the Golliwogs in the early 1960s, releasing numerous singles before achieving success in the pop world. In 1967, Saul Zaentz bought Fantasy Records and offered the band a chance to record a full-length album on the condition that they change their name
We look at the life of Tom Fogerty, the guitar-playing bandmate and younger brother of Creedence Clearwater Revival's John Fogerty. As the rhythm guitarist for Creedence Clearwater Revival, Tom played on plenty of rock classics and had a solo career before his death on Sept. 6, 1990, at the age of 48. Born in Berkeley, Calif. on Nov. 9, 1941, Tom, like so many others in the late ‘50s, was bitten by the rock n’ roll bug as a teenager. He formed a band, Spider Webb and the Insects, that was signed in 1959 to Del-Fi Records, the label that made Richie Valens a star. They only recorded one song for the label, Lyda Jane, but it was never released and the group broke up shortly thereafter.
