The Good Side of Scott Stapp

Found this on Jim Abbott's blog. He's the Creed/Stapp hater that writes for the Orlando Sentinel....

The good side of Scott Stapp
Hey, I've gotten a lot of mileage making fun of Scott Stapp, but I'm not an ogre. So in the spirit of fair play, he's a lovely observation about the singer who doesn't seem to get many lovely observations. From the mailbag:

Dear Jim,
I thought your article on the Scott Stapp “home opener” was an accurate account of that performance. I thought you might be interested, however, in hearing about something that didn’t happen onstage that night.

About 30 minutes before Stapp took the stage at Hard Rock Live, I met with him personally backstage to accept a sizeable charitable donation from his Scott Stapp Foundation. He related a few stories of growing up in Orlando,and of how his mother sometimes struggled to put food on the table. Then he handed me an envelope that contained enough financial resources to allow Second Harvest Food Bank to provide 80,000 meals for children living in poverty in Central Florida.

Our organization can turn one dollar into 4 meals, so you can do the math. Our Food Bank has been fortunate enough to receive similar gifts from generous performers such as Bruce Springsteen, Shania Twain, Robert Plant & Jimmy Page, Stephen Stills and others with tour stops in Orlando.

To date, however, Stapp’s gift was the most generous of all. He has plans to make other donations to local food banks (perhaps not quite as much as he did in his hometown!) in each city his tour visits. Having had a chance to look into his eyes and shake the bandaged hand you wrote about, I can tell you that this was no publicity stunt. It was an act of kindness from someone who wanted to help others. All things considered, his publicist probably should have tried to splash the Foundation gift a bit more given his personal struggle in the past few weeks. Just thought you might be interested in that “postscript.” Keep up the good work!

Re: The Good Side of Scott Stapp

Even though he's made a ton of mistakes, even though he's gotten drunk several times in public, gotten arrested, gotten into fights, made not so nice tapes, you've gotta at least respect Scott for his charity work. He seems to be one of the most generous guys in rock.

Re: The Good Side of Scott Stapp

No no no... I don't think his PR guy should have said anything. Infact I don't thin Stapp wanted people to know about this, at least not the large mass. I've ranted on about how stupid he is and stuff like that but this thing and not telling the public that "HEY YOU GUYS! I'M DONATING LOADS OF MONEY TO POOR CHILDREN" is just great since he's not trying to promot himself as a saver...

Marcos.......




In all seriousness, I am glad that Stapp isn't boasting about this. If he were, a lot of people would probably think he only did it to get good publicity, not because he's a generous guy.

dude!

get your facts straight before judging me:

the reason Stapp fired Kiki, his former personal assistant and manager, is that Kiki insisted he went to rehab and to help Stapp he got rid of all the liquor in Stapp's home. That's what he got as an appreciation gesture.

Out of curiosity, where'd you hear that? I seriously did not know that was the reason why Kiki got fired.
