Give Thanks: Creed Is Never Getting Back Together (So Long As Alter Bridge Is Making Money)

Nov 21st, 2007 // 6 Comments

stapppppp.jpgAs we are forcedprepare to join our loved ones and reaffirm the positive things that have happened to us in 2007, take comfort in the fact that former Creed and current Alter Bridge guitarist Mark Tremonti is as irritated by Scott Stapp as the rest of world, meaning no future Creed product. Also, Stapp’s one of those creepy exes who can’t stop sending “hey, what’s up?” text messages long after the relationship’s over.

He says, “I’ve got some text messages (from Stapp) here and there wishing us well and stuff. But I’ve seen it all before. I’ve seen him reach out and try to be a nice guy, then the next month he’s saying he was Creed and we were just a bunch of idiots along for the ride.”

“I just can’t trust the guy. And I’m old enough and wise enough now to keep people out of my life that make it worse than it needs to be.”

Or make our lives worse than they need to be, eh Mark? And with that good news, I’m off to get drunk and eat my weight in carbohydrates and bird flesh. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! (Well, the Americans. The rest of you are on your own tomorrow.)

    Oh my gosh! I’m so embarrassed. I just pumped my fist to the air. I’m such a loser… who never has to hear Creed again. Woo woo!

    Sometimes the continued non-existence of Creed makes me think I’m living in a dream.

    Is there some sort of tip jar for this Alter Bridge business? I don’t know what one is, but anything that keeps C***d at bay for another year is worth 25 of my cents.

    Honestly I think the entertainment value of a Creed reunion (which would almost certainly be a trainwreck failure) would be preferable to the existence of Aler Bridge, who are mostly less annoying than Creed simply by virtue of being less ubiquitous.

    Its about time both Scott and Mark chech their egos at the door.

    To think that Tremonti can do it without Scott Stapp is ridiculous. I understand his frustrations, but were taking about being the number 1 band in the world vs. being a middle of the road band.

    Mark if you an Scott could make amends I could see you taking Nickelback spot of number 1 but your time to market is getting really short.

    Just my philosophy, I wish you all the best.
