* WeUsedToBeFriends: CCR's breakup was one of the most acrimonious in rock history. Tom Fogerty still hadn't patched things up with his bandmates at the time of his AIDS-related death in 1990, and three years later John Fogerty refused to perform with Cook and Clifford at the group's [=RnR=] HOF induction ceremony; John actually assembled a completely different band (including Music/BruceSpringsteen and [[Music/TheBand Robbie Robertson]]) for the performance without telling anyone, and when Stu, Doug and their families found out, they all stormed out in anger. Evidently the rift between John and Stu/Doug still exists to this day.

Even John's own relatives -- the family of his late brother Tom Fogerty -- were pissed off by the move. Evidently the rift between John and Stu/Doug still exists to this day.

** This was subverted when CCR recorded 1972's ''Mardi Gras," as John Fogerty wanted each of the three remaining members to contribute equally to the album. In reality, Doug Clifford and Stu Cook were both reluctant to contribute much more than they usually would, and only relented to the idea when Fogerty threatened to quit. This move was largely seen as an attempt on Fogerty's part to make Clifford and Cook look like inferior musicians, and to reinforce this point, he didn't contribute to any of their songs on the album.

* GriefSong: "Have You Ever Seen the Rain". * IAmTheBand: John Fogerty sang, played all the exciting guitar parts, and wrote all the songs. Eventually Tom got so fed up with his brother's dominance that he quit the band. The rest of the members disbanded one album later.
