Stu Cook Net Worth $20 million
After attending San Jose State University, Stu Cook teamed up with the Fogerty brothers, John and Tom, as well as with Doug Clifford, and they founded the swamp and country rock band named Creedence Clearwater Revival in 1967. In the following year, CCR released their debut self-titled studio album which was subsequently followed by two more albums in 1969 – “Bayou Country” and “Green River”. With their fame on the rise, Stu and his band mates performed at the famous Woodstock Festival, and this successful entry into the world of music provided the basis for Stu Cook’s present day, rather impressive, overall net worth.
CCR was extremely successful for five years, releasing seven albums which sold almost 30 million copies, but broke-up in acrimony in 1972. In the mid-1970s, alongside his CCR “colleague” Doug Clifford, Stu joined Don Harrison and his eponymous rock band. Although it was active for only two years between 1976 and 1976, the band released two studio albums. In 1979, Stu Cook produced two albums of Rocky Erickson and the Aliens, which hit the charts in 1980, featuring a total of 15 songs. All these engagements helped Stu Cook to establish himself as a prominent bass guitarist and producer, and to significantly enlarge his wealth.
Between 1986 and 1991, Cook performed with Rocky Erickson, and then in 1993 for his contribution to music, he was inducted into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame. In 1995, Cook and Clifford reformed CCR, rebranding it as Creedence Clearwater Revisited, and in 1998 they released a two-disc live album named “Recollection”. Despite a calm reception by the audience in the begining, the album was later certified platinum. Since then, the new CCR led by Stu Cook and his hallmark bass guitar sound, has released five more studio albums, six of which the most recent one is “Playlist: The Very Best of Creedence Clearwater Revisited”, which hit the chars in 2016. It is certain that all these ventures have helped Stu Cook to keep an uninterrupted influx of money and dramatically increase the amount of his revenues.
