    Default Creed

    Bad news for any diehard Creed fans out there waiting for a reunion: According to former Creed/ current Alter Bridge guitarist Mark Tremonti, it's never, ever, ever going to happen.

    In the upcoming issue of Guitar One magazine,

    Tremonti puts all hope of a new Creed album or tour to rest — permanently — and says he wants fans and journalists alike to know Alter Bridge isn't something he's doing just to pass the time. It's his band, now and forever.

    "There have been a lot of rumors and misconceptions in the press, where they say, 'Yeah, we just had an interview with [ex-Creed frontman] Scott [Stapp], and he said you guys are definitely getting back together, that it's just a matter of time,' " he said. "It waters down what we're trying to do with Alter Bridge. Alter Bridge is not a side project by any means. There is no way in the world that Creed would get back together — unless it was for world peace."

    Creed were arguably the biggest rock band of the late '90s, selling more than 24 million records and stringing together one chart-topping hit after another. But last year, after months of trying to write songs for a fourth album, Tremonti announced Creed were finished, citing Stapp's lack of commitment as the main reason for the split (see "Creed Break Up").

    Stapp denied Tremonti's charges, instead blaming the breakup on his health issues — stemming from anti-inflammatory medication he took for injuries from a 2002 car crash — and a desire to spend more time with his young son (see "Scott Stapp Breaks His Silence").

    But whether he's committed to it or not, it's been Stapp's decision to perform material he and Tremonti had written in Creed that has angered Tremonti the most (and even further scuttled any hopes of a reunion).

    "He's still out there playing Creed songs with a pieced-together pawnshop band. Scott [Stapp] and I discussed that during the breakup," Tremonti said. "Since we wrote the songs together, we decided that if we were no longer together, playing them would be unfair to Creed fans and all the guys in the band. It's made me angry, because I thought we had an agreement."

    Since the Creed breakup, Stapp has not been playing shows, but he did perform a version of Creed's "Higher" at the NASCAR Nextel Cup Series Awards Ceremony, held in New York last December.

    A spokesperson for Stapp's — and Alter Bridge's — label, Wind-Up Records, said Stapp was unavailable to comment on the Guitar One piece, since he's in the studio working on a solo record, though "in the near future, Scott will share his feelings — about the past, present and future."

    According to Wind-Up, there is no release date set for his solo debut. Alter Bridge continue to tour behind last year's One Day Remains and are working on material for a follow-up.

    Funny when I meet him @ NAMM he sounded like latter, on Creed would get back together not only that he also told me Creed would be Releasing a box set with material that wasn’t used for there albums. And we also talked about the live Creed DVD, he told me “I don’t think it will every come out because Scott wanted it to be a Best of Live performances. I wanted to be a straight one live show”

    Well that’s what he told me in January.

    EVERY band that breaks up says there's never going to reunite. Although I don't really care about a Creed reunion, I'm sure it'll happen at some point.

    Yep, but Alter Bridge are pretty good. If there was a Creed reunion I'd be screaming for Alter Bridge to get back together.

    Wasn't most of it written before Myles Kennedy even came into
    the band? No telling what a follow up would sound like.

    Gee, I'm all broken up about this.

    I like the song Alter Bridge did before the HR Derby.

    The AB material is definately better what Creed did. If AB stays together we can look forward to some kick ass rock N roll records in the future.

    AB's debut disc is by far the best CD I have picked up in the last few years!

    I might just have to stop listening to rock music altogether if they don't reunite.
    Bummer.

    I just bought Creed's Greatest Hits Cd. Yes, I like some of their songs. I only listened to a few of them so far, but I haven't heard any guitar solos. Did Tremonti just start doing them in Alterbridge? Everyone at this site raves about his talent- He plays some goof riffs, but where are the solos?

    Mark was never a big solo guy until the Alterbridge album. His primary focus has always been on the songs, which worked well in Creed. If I were you I'd pick up the My Own Prison album.

    I hope Mark does in fact keeps Alter Bridge going, l can see this band doing some great things, for one bringing back guitar solos.

    I've never liked Creed, never have never will, l hope this reunion NEVER happens.

    Scott.
