Former Creedence Clearwater Revival members Stu Cook and Doug Clifford want to right the ship when it comes to their lawsuit against former bandmate John Fogerty.

In a prepared statement, the pair explained the reasoning behind their lawsuit against Fogerty for alleged malfeasance and settlement agreement breach, and also attempted to set there record straight when it came to Fogerty’s response.

Because of recent inaccurate statements in the media regarding pending litigation, we want to set the record straight,” Cook and Clifford wrote. “We have never objected to John Fogerty performing any song he ever wrote, or performing any song recorded by Creedence Clearwater Revival. That idea is ridiculous. Even when he refused to play those songs, and publicly called for a boycott of CCR music, we encouraged him to perform them whenever and wherever he wanted.”

So what’s the issue? According to Cook and Clifford, Fogerty’s lawyers have threatened lawsuits in the past and, they say, seemed to be gearing up for another, so their lawsuit was a preemptive measure.
