“We never really had any intention of playing for the public,” says Stu. “But a friend wanted to promote a couple of concerts. We got talked into it, but didn’t know how it would go over.”
Since then, the reaction to Creedence Clearwater Revisited’s concerts has been astounding. And driven in part by a generation of kids who, as Cosmo says, “weren’t even born when the music came out.” Likewise, the release of the double live CD on Universal’s Hip-O Records label, which features passion, authoritative version of 22 classic hits was the result of public demand. “It was generated by requests of the people who came to the shows,” Stu acknowledges. Creedence Clearwater Revisited’s “Recollection” has proven so popular that in 2008 the RIAA certified it Platinum.
Having now toured North America, South America, Central America, New Zealand, Austria, Europe and Asia, knocking out audiences with astounding concerts jam-packed with songs that are still a staple for radio and movie soundtracks, Creedence Clearwater Revisited has come a long way. “In the beginning, Cosmo and I decided that if we could find the musicians that could capture the sound and recreate what the music was about, we’d do it,” recalls Stu.
As fans who have experience a Creedence Clearwater Revisited concert can attest, Stu and Cosmo found the right players. Lead singer/rhythm guitar player John Tristao, lead guitarist Kurt Griffey and talented multi-instrumentalist Steve Gunner rounds out the group.
