Or when the rest of CCR insisted on recording some of their own songs? That was the end of a very good band. Have you heard Mardi Gras?   yak 

I loved ... still do ... Pendulum.... I think it was one of their best albums, though it did not do too well.

Sure. All the songs were written by John Fogarty. Mardi Gras is the one where the members get four songs each. Tom is gone. Clifford's and Cook's songs are amateurish crap.

And therefore, totally forgettable - I can't remember any of them. I'd have to replay the album and then I'd go, "Oh, yeah...what Tom said - crap."

The only song I remember off the top of my head from Mardi Gras is "Someday Never Comes." Pretty sure that was a Fogarty tune.

It also has Sweet Hitchhiker and a pretty decent cover of Hello Mary Lou but the rest is worse than forgettable cos I remember it. Heck, I bought it. Fogarty hated it so much, he quit his own band and on his next album played all the instruments.

Yes, the "Blue Ridge Rangers".  A great album and well-produced IMHO.

Became a Shooting Star when I got my 1st guitar.
Back in '66, I was 13 and that was my fix.
Still shooting for stardom after all this time.
If I never make it, I'll still be fine.

How about when the Beatles broke up to pursue their solo careers?
The whole was always greater than the sum of the parts.
I know they were feuding and yeah, there was Yoko messing things up, but IMHO only Harrison produced anything of lasting value after the split.

The brother of his own mother Ted Nugent.

Of course, he was never very good.

I dunno. Lennon's Plastic Ono Band was pretty damn good rock'n'roll and I love McCartney's Ram.
