The Stupidest Band Ever
The surviving members of Creedence Clearwater Revival are trying to sue each other again, but this time, they mean it.
John Fogerty has been playing his songs live and, in some strange world where that's relevant, Stu Cook and Doug Clifford are upset because this might somehow put a damper on their tribute band version of CCR that plays songs from the good old days.
If your reaction is "what?" then you're not alone. The best CCR songs--the ones that really matter--were all written by John Fogerty. But, through some legal movements years ago, the other members and the widow of Fogerty's brother have some ownership stake in the name of the band for which John Fogerty wrote all of the good songs and therefore have...
