On episode 084, our friend Doug "Cosmo" Clifford stops by for an in-depth look back on his amazing career with Creedence Clearwater Revival and Creedence Clearwater Revisited. It could be argued that CCR was the world's first Americana band, but without question, they were the flag-bearers for American Roots music from 1968 through 1972. In that short four-year span, they released seven classic albums that have withstood the test of time and remain in constant rotation everywhere. With over 30 million albums sold worldwide and induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1993, Doug Clifford has influenced countless drummers and musicians over the past 50 years of his storied career. Doug shares with Jamie his memories of recording the classic CCR catalog, talks about his unrelenting work ethic, the formation of the Revisited project, and the decision to retire from touring at the end of 2019. Doug is one of the most genuine and down-to-earth rock stars you'll ever run into in the music business. He shares his memories freely and honestly in this outstanding discussion on The Drum Shuffle.
