Scott Stapp Still A Creed Follower

noah | March 27, 2009 1:00 am

As a way of getting in touch with his fans, greasy yarler Scott Stapp has started up a Twitter, which so far has one update (“im in the studio tracking new music!!”) and 116 followers. But it’s who Stapp is following on the microblogging service that is notable—especially after all the scuttlebutt regarding a reunion of his former band last year.

Sure, talk of the turn-of-the-millennium’s God-and-grunge revivalists getting back together for one last cash-in kind of dissipated after Jimmy Page called off the Led Zeppelin non-reunion, which was going to take Alter Bridge frontman Myles Kennedy away from Mark Tremonti And The Other Guys and open up a place for Stapp to glide right into. (Not in the greasy way.) (OK, sorry, I just grossed myself out with that image, ugh.) But why would Creed have a brand-new, officially sanctioned Twitter now, some five years after they pounded out their last version of “My Sacrifice”? Something tells me that intermittent messages saying “Creed’s Greatest Hits is still available in stores, and even in this time when most albums can’t even get shoplifted, 4,000 people bought it last week!” is not the reason. I’m just saying. (And warning all of you.)
