[updated April 98]

The River Rising is the only open and free World Wide Mailing List for CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL and JOHN FOGERTY fans. It covers topics of the classic band, its members, the current activities of former band members John Fogerty and Stu Cook/Doug Clifford Creedence Clearwater Revisited band, and is a special place for the memory of Tom Fogerty. Strong opinions are voiced at the List but this Web Site remains non-commited to either side.

What is a Mail List? A Mail List is a group of people with an Internet connection who register to a centralized email distribution system. Messages sent by one member to the List is automatically forwarded to the other members by the List Computer (the Server.)


How many messages per day does this List handle? The River Rising Mail List delivers up to 20 messages per day as of April 1998. The number of messages increases when John Fogerty and or Creedence Clearwater Revisited hit the road. Expect a significant increase too,  after release of PREMONOTION and RECOLLECTION, the live CDs by John Fogerty and Creedence Clearwater Revisited, respectively.
