Creedence Clearwater Revisited is an American rock band formed in 1995 by two former members of Creedence Clearwater RevivalStu Cook (bass) and Doug "Cosmo" Clifford (drums). It is known for playing the music of Creedence Clearwater Revival.

John Fogerty, another former member of Creedence Clearwater Revival who had exercised artistic control over the earlier band and had written all of its most popular original songs, tried to stop the newer "Revisited" band from using its name – saying the name would confuse the public into thinking it was a continuation of the earlier "Revival" band. The suit was ultimately unsuccessful. (The fourth member of Creedence Clearwater Revival, Tom Fogerty, had died in 1990 before the new band was formed.)


The band was formed in 1995 with Cook saying, "We never really had any intention of playing for the public, but a friend wanted to promote a couple of concerts. We got talked into it, but didn't know how it would go over."[1]

A 1997 legal injunction by John Fogerty forced the group to change its name to "Cosmo's Factory", a name it had earlier considered, but the courts later ruled in Cook's and Clifford's favor. In 1998, the band released Recollection, composed of live cover versions of Creedence Clearwater Revival songs.

The band has toured North America, South America, Australia, New Zealand, Europe and Asia. As of 2016, Creedence Clearwater Revisited was on its second headlining tour of the U.S.[1]
