Rare Archival Footage of Creedence Clearwater Revival Showing at The Avon Theatre in Stamford
John Fogerty's voice is as American as baseball and apple pie. Songs like "Proud Mary", "Have You Ever Seen the Rain?" and "Bad Moon Rising" are right up there with Woody Guthrie tunes and "The Star Spangled Banner" as the most red, white and blue sounds ever produced. On Wednesday, Avon Theatre archivist Bill Shelley once again dips into his archives of rare footage of classic bands with an all-Creedence special on the big screen so that we can approximate what it must've been like to see them play live in their prime. The dude would abide.
