je voudrais connaître le sens de Creedence dans le nom du groupe rock Creedence Clearwater Revival. Dans le dictionnaire je ne trouve que "credence" dont le sens ne me suggère pas de rapport avec "clearwater".

    A much more positive event occurred in 1967 when Saul Zaentz purchased Fantasy Records from Weiss and offered the band a chance to record a full-length album, but only if the group changed its name. Never having liked The Golliwogs, the foursome readily agreed. Zaentz and the band agreed to come up with ten suggestions each, but he enthusiastically agreed to their first: Creedence Clearwater Revival. The band took the three elements from Creedence Nuball, a friend of Tom Fogerty; "clear water", from a TV commercial for Olympia beer; and revival, which spoke to the four members' renewed commitment to their band.

    C'est donc un nom propre...
