Rightly called the saddest story in rock 'n' roll history, this Creedence biography newly updated with stories from band members, producers, business associates, close friends, and families recounts the tragic and triumphant tale of one of America’s most beloved bands. Hailed as the great American rock band from 1968 to 1971, Creedence Clearwater Revival captured the imaginations of a generation with classic hits like Proud Mary,” Down on the Corner,” Green River,” Born on the Bayou,” and Who’ll Stop the Rain.” Mounting tensions among bandmates over vibrant guitarist and lead vocalist John Fogerty’s creative control led to the band's demise. Tracing the lives of four musicians who redefined an American roots-rock sound with unequaled passion and power, this music biography exposes the bitter end and abandoned talent of a band left crippled by debt and dissension.

"Bordowitz brings CCR’s complex story to life . . . [He] never takes sides or passes judgment yet brilliantly illuminates the tragedy of CCR’s lost potential." —Library Journal
"Bordowitz’s recounting of all the acrimony is well detailed and not too hyperbolic. This is a must read for CCR-philes." —Booklist
"If Hank Bordowitz’s Bad Moon Rising isn’t ‘the saddest story in rock ’n’ roll,’ . . . it certainly comes within kissing distance." —USA Today
"A new, pretty good examination of the group." —Houston Chronicle
