    I, too, love Creedence and really enjoy doing their stuff on stage. It's usually pretty easy and interesting to play.
    A couple of years ago I was talking to a guitarist who said he didn't like Creedence material, I was surprised, because his band did several CCR songs. When I asked why they did them if they didn't like them, he said that the songs always got the crowds off their bums and onto the dance floor.

    Seems like a good enough reason to me.

    this guy prefers the audience to stay quiet so he can perform his famous breathtaking solos without being distracted?

    I love CCR and John Fogerty. To me, he always looks like he's having a ball up there playing. I think Susie Q was one of the first songs I figured out all by myself. I love the lead break in Proud Mary 'cause it's so simple, yet sounds so cool. And I have always loved "Lodi" even though it wasn't a huge megahit. I played guitar in our Pep Band in high school and I talked our Band Director into doing an arrangement of "Willie and the Poor Boys" for the Pep Band. I thought that was way cool of him way back then.

    The first 45 I bought was Proud Mary. The first album I wore out was Cosmos Factory. I play and listen to a lot of different genres, but I never get tired of Creedence. I play Green River as a regular set song, and often do Traveling Band, Suzie Q, and Looking Out my Back Door. They did a TON of songs I like. I think my fav is probably Molina

    I was playing around with the beginning to "Born on the Bayou" the other night for a friend and he complimented me for coming up with such a catchy little guitar line.I thought he was joking,so I told him I was thinking about calling it "Born on the Bayou",he thought it sounded to country.:confused:Yes,Seriously:eek:....He's just more into metal than I thought,so I just let it go.
    Anyway, "Tombstone Shadow" is another favorite of mine.:cool:

    I have always loved Creedence's music. I went through a listening binge recently. Saw them three times in their heyday, and saw John Fogerty live a few years back. For a sixty-something, the man has amazing energy, and of course, his songs are killer. He probably naps a lot during the day!

    Back when they came to prominence in the late 60's, nobody else was playing swampy, bluesy roots music. Creedence made it fashionable, and their string of hit singles and albums speaks for itself. Just a great band all around. Too bad their business dealings got so F'd-up.

    CCR do some great swampy jam tunes. Born on the Bayou, Run Though the Jungle, Suzy Q, Heard It On the Grapevine...

    Extended jamming heaven!
