Creedence Clearwater Revival is the best American rock band ever.

Brikus, that's some of the funniest stuff I have ever read. Kudos my brother. There will now be an honorary Trollie Award each year named in honor of you and that thread, called the Open G Piano Award.

We saw CCR, that is, Creedence Clearwater Revisited, and was pleasantly surprised on how well John Tristao sings ala Fogerty. Elliot Easton was playing with the band when we saw them and his version of Susie Q was to DIE FOR! Best version I ever heard. Elliot is a monster on guitar.
Fogerty has been pretty much a ****************head when it comes to dealing with past bandmates Stu and Cosmo.
No doubt that CCR, the Dead, the Eagles, Van Halen et al were all great. What is sad is that the band I consider to be the greatest of their time has been forgotten. Moby Grape were amazing song-writers and musicians who crashed and burned so quickly that folks today don't even remember that they existed. Listen to their first album or Wow or get the compilation Vintage: The Very Best of Moby Grape and you will be astounded.

I've had the self-titled debut, the WALSTIB "greatest hits" complilation, and a friend let me borrow American Beauty for a month. I've also been at friend's places where numerous bootlegs and homemade compilations have been spun up. (Now comes the inevitable slew of recomendations for listening followed by "You have to see them live to appreciate them."
They just leave me flat and uninspired. I don't dislike them, but they just don't do a thing for me. I will say that their more obscure songs are far better than any of their radio staples, which are quite mediocre...but that's true of many bands.
Aerosmith strikes me as so much more pose and hype than substance, they might sneak into my top 20 American bands, but not much further. Even during their "rocking era" from the early to late 70's I think the only thing that gave them momentum was the fact that they WERE American and could put on a decent live show when sober, but IMO they couldn't stand on the stage with a quality European band like say the Scorpions.
I make the fire but I miss the firefight.
All that stuff is evil: Ozzy, Judas Priest. There's backwards messages in that stuff that leads you to the Beast.

Although CCR was inducted as a band, Fogerty refused to play with his former bandmates (I think his brother had already died by then, but couldn't swear to that), although they were led to believe that they would be onstage for the festivities. They came to soundcheck early that day and were told they were not allowed to play that night.
Instead Fogerty got up and played CCR songs with a bunch of other rock stars.
Don't forget that the his old band mates tried to sue Fogarty for copyright infringment for his solo career song "The Old Man is Down the Road" due to its similarity to "Run Through the Jungle".
They lost. It's not similar enough.
