It is better to go to a house of mourning than to go to a house of feasting
for death is the destiny of every man; the living should take this to heart.
Ecclesiastes 7:2(NIV)

Creedence Clearwater Revival


CCR guitarist Tom Fogerty, brother of John, had split from Creedence in 1971. Having been the featured performer in earlier bands, Tom was unhappy with his secondary role in CCR, which was generally percieved as "John's group." He had a undistinguished solo career, and eventually filed suit against Fantasy Records for royalties earned as a member of CCR. Tom Fogerty died September 6, 1990 of AIDS. He had contracted the disease from a blood tranfusion while under treatment for tuberculosis.
