Creedence Clearwater Revival

The members of the band Creedence Clearwater Revival, formed around John and Tom Fogerty, ignored names as Muddy Rabbit, Gossamer Wump and Creedence Nuball and the Ruby, before making their preference known for Creedence Clearwater Revival.

The three-part name can be explained as follows.

Credence Newball was a friend of Tom Fogerty. His confidence-building first name proved to be irresistible to the band.

How to explain band name Creedence Clearwater Revival - Olympia_Beer_label_1914Clearwater is a transparent reference to the television commercials for Olympia beer, in which the eco-friendly term clear water was used, while the cans and bottles carried the punchline It's The Water.

Revival finally was added to indicate that this is about a restart: a number of the band members had been active before as The Golliwogs until military service drove them apart.

Active: 1967-1972, USA
