Creedence Clearwater Revisited, which features CCR co-founders, Stu Cook and Doug “Cosmo” Clifford, have announced that they are retiring the group after 25 years.

They said in a statement, “We have had so much fun with Creedence Clearwater Revisited. We’ve been amazed, humbled and thrilled by the reception from old and new generations of fans at our shows. We’ve been able to take the music seriously but not ourselves and travelled the world in a drama-free band. We recorded another platinum album. This decision is very difficult and bittersweet. It’s actually hard to imagine not touring. It’s not like we’re going to be disbanding, but we are definitely going to be relaxing.”
