Creedence Clearwater Revival’s Stu Cook Makes Mince Meat of Rockers’ Block

Did the CCR bassist get fortunate songs or does he have preternatural powers? You be the judge!



Some music artists have released literally hundreds of songs over the years, to say nothing of the ones deemed too garbage-y to release. BlastEcho wondered if those involved in recording so many songs could remember them all. Enter Rockers’ Block.

For each Rockers’ Block contestant, we play five random songs from their catalog, each song from the beginning, to see how long it takes for them to guess (well, maybe guess isn’t the right word) the correct song. Then once they do (hopefully), they talk a bit about the song.

As part of Creedence Clearwater Revisited, bassist Stu Cook (along with CCR drummer Doug Clifford) has been performing Creedence Clearwater Revival tunes for more than 20 years (and counting). Of course, most of the songs BlastEcho played him for this audio edition of Rockers’ Block are nowhere to be found on a typical Revisited set list. In retrospect, we could have played him “Fortunate Son,” “Born on the Bayou,” “Down on the Corner” and a couple other monster CCR hits and he’d have fared just as well. For copyright reasons, you won’t hear the songs during the game, but we’ve provided links to the actual songs so you can play along.

Let’s hear how he did!
