I reckon even Martin Turner will be laughing at this, as it puts his dispute with Andy Powell firmly into focus. The website for Rock Artist Management has CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL’ down as playing the Butlins Giants of Rock Fest at Minehead! I kept looking again and again. Not ‘…Review’, who are a copy act. Not ‘…Revisited’ who include the original bass player and drummer, either. Seemingly it is as the headline says.
However, there are some clues once we know it is Butlins. The main man at Rock Artist Management is Pete Barton. He books the Butlins acts (see many previous entries on this website). He once played in the Animals with Johnny ‘Guitar’ Williamson. Mr W once had a Creedence copy act called Creedence Clearwater Revived. A look on the Ents24 booking site reveals the existence of , and I quote, ‘Johnny ‘Guitar’ Williamson’s Creedence Clearwater Revival’ !!! No kidding!
I look forward to a Mr John Fogerty’s reaction to this information, which can only be described using Chris Kamara’s favourite word…unbelievable!
A further search has found Creedence Clearwater Revived are playing in KIel, it says ‘Revival’ on the RockArtistManagement site though! And blow me down, guess who else is in the line up?! Clue, first name Pete, second name rhymes with ‘f*rt on’.
