5. Creedence Clearwater Revisited
Also present at Gator Jam will be Creedence Clearwater Revisited whose bassist Stu Cook and drummer Doug Clifford took the Woodstock stage with Creedence Clearwater Revival. The change in name is due to lawsuits from CCR singer and songwriter John Fogerty who wanted nothing to do with the reunion.


4. John Fogerty
The lead singer of Creedence Clearwater Revival is still touring as a solo act. He played Hard Rock last year where he reminisced about how Woodstock inspired him to write a hit song. They were to play Saturday night at 9:30, but things kept getting delayed. And with the Grateful Dead started playing before them, it wasn't until 2:30 in the morning that they took the stage.

John Fogerty was so excited. He looked out to see thousands of hippies just like him, but they were all naked, and worse, they were sleeping. The Grateful Dead had put them to sleep. Still CCR played, and he could hear one voice in the distance. "Keep doing it John. I'm with you." He realized they were playing this whole set for that one person. And right after that, he wrote this song for that one guy called, "Who'll Stop the Rain."
