While guitarist John Fogerty left the original Creedence Clearwater Revival lineup in 1971, the band continued on as a three-piece group up until calling it quits in 1972. Yet, around 11 years later, the band came together once again (except for Tom Fogerty) and played under the name of the Blue Velvets at their 20th-year high school reunion.

They played the reunion once again five years later this time with only John Fogerty and the drummer Doug Clifford. This was the last time that Creedence Clearwater Revival ever played together as a “band.”
