Perfectly stated. CCR was a band I enjoyed very much and still I do.CCR were incredibly popular, in their day.
As they progressed, the other members wanted to have their songs featured on the albums, too.
Unfortunately, the other members did not have nearly the writing, singing, and playing chops of John F.
The later albums did not sell as well, as a result.
Mardi Gras is a prime example.
The other members were perfectly adequate players, but that’s about it.
John had all the juice.
After they broke up, John did his Blue Ridge Rangers album, and much later Centerfield.
Management and inter-band lawsuits ensued.
There’s nothing like legal maneuvering to kill the creativity of a band.
They actually had a decent run, IMO.
What was CCR's problem? They were so good and their music
My understanding was it was the manager, not the other band members, with whom JF had the gripe. Resulting in the song "Vanz Can't Dance" on Centerfield. In fact, JF got sued and had to change the name and lyrics, the original named the guy directly. JF felt like he got hoodwinked out of his song rights, then the guy went and lost all their money in bad investments. That's the story as I read it. I'm sure JF tells it putting himself in the best light, though (sure, everyone does that).john fogerty badly mismanaged them. also their music gets pretty boring after a while.
There can’t be degrees of mismanagement?So actually..... he only mismanaged them
