Stu Cook, who along with his best pal Doug “Cosmo” Clifford, has provided the underpinning for some of the classic American Rock ‘n’ Roll of the last forty-odd (and we do mean odd) years.
He is one of a small handful of electric bassists who have helped define the genre, truly deserving of the legend status that his induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame suggests. Besides keeping the flame burning for CCR, Stu was also a member of the country-rock group, Southern Pacific, and along with Cosmo, nailed down the groove for the acclaimed Don Harrison Band. About the current state of affairs Stu says, “There’s still some meat on the bone, baby.”
…Bassist Stu Cook and drummer Doug “Cosmo” Clifford, the rhythm section of both Revival and Revisited, are the heart and soul (of)…Creedence. ~Phoenix New Times
