Holiday compilation album benefits diabetes research


When they were the backbone to Creedence Clearwater Revival, Stu Cook and Doug Clifford covered their share of early rock hits for the band’s studio albums.

As the bassist and drummer, respectively, for Creedence Clearwater Revisited (above), Cook and Clifford continue that trend with the group’s rendition of the Chuck Berry holiday favorite “Run Rudolph Run” that’s featured on Hope for the Holidays: Rockin’ Christmas for a Cure.

Proceeds from Hope for the Holidays will benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

“Today, there is no cure for juvenile diabetes,” Cook says, “but by purchasing Hope for the Holidays, you can help in the fight against this disease by funding research that will lead to one.”

“One in three people born after the year 2000 will develop some form of diabetes,” says Clifford, who adds that the album is “great music for a great cause.”

In addition to the Creedence Clearwater Revisited version of “Run Rudolph Run,” which can be heard by clicking here, Hope for the Holidays also includes recordings by Weezer, Collective Soul, The Beach Boys and others.
