Backstage Pass: CCR's Stu Cook reminisces about Jackdawg

In the late ’80s, Creedence Clearwater Revival bassist Stu Cook and two members of the Doobie Brothers formed Jackdawg. A more rock-oriented animal propelled by the high-powered guitar wrangling of John McFee (Clover, Doobie Brothers), Jackdawg — also featuring the late Keith Knudsen from the Doobie Brothers — convened in 1990 to record what would become a lost album of solid, rip-roaring rockers with a Southern heart. That debut LP is only now being released.
