the sad thing for me is...

Since we have all basically heard the "official" news today. It is really sad. But, the saddest thing of all :dead is ... after 3/4 years of loving creed and being a huge fan... i never got to see them in concert. I have always said... jokingly... (if that is a word) that i cannot die till i meet creed. Well, my hopes and dreams are shattered. They were my peace and they helped me through times inever thought i would get through... but i am still (we are) lucky that we can enjoy every members contribution. I am still cheering for the guys.

:thewave and all we can do is hope for a reunion...

they should have just taken a long break to deal with problems.... but i guess i am just upset... that's all so i don't know what i am talking about

I had a feeling that you were going to say that in this thread. I feel the same way, I missed out on seeing them in Auckland in 2001. Now that the band has split up, I regret not having enough money to go there. I might never see them live, and that really sucks

I feel lucky to have seen Creed 5 times, 4 of them being outstanding and amazing shows. The 5th one, well, we all know what happened there...

Mark personally handed me a guitar pick at my 3rd show. One of my greatest concert moments ever. Can't wait to see Alter Bridge in concert some day.

I do feel for anyone who didn't get to experience them live. But, at least they were kind enough to share their gift with us. We still have the music and new friends because of it.

I feel weird... I knew it all the way but I got really sad with the annoucement today... heartbroken, to say the least.

So many time and effort spent with Creed. I started learning guitar because of Mark, I let my hair grow because of Stapp, made a lil website that I dropped since I didn't have more time... so many time talking about them to people that got tired of me speaking of them.

And I never got the chance to see them live. This is what saddens me the most. So many people that didn't even care about them had this chance and took it. But due the distance, I couldn't. It saddens me that their break up happened like this... they deserved more, they were the best band in the last 10 years but never got the respect ... Philly was a great concert but it wasn't a farewell tour. I miss the disbanding had no comotion.

At the same time, I applause the way it was announced. The end of an era, but in a way that still uplift us, like only Creed could do. Speaking of the time they spent together and how wonderful it was... it was great. No emphasis on what went wrong or whose fault it is... they bolded their friendship and shared the good memories with us, unlike other bands that break up and start dissing each other.

The CreedQuest, bootlegs, jokes... I'll miss it all. Perhaps in the future they can gift us with a reunion album or concert.

Thanks to Creed, look at how many (online) friends I made: Steve, Dogstar, Puj, Sal, Dan (guitarchitect) and so many others from the boards. This is priceless.

Only I know how much Creed helped me to grow as a person and strenghtened me when I needed. It's a chapter of my life that came to an end. But there are still more to come, times 2 since they're gone their separate ways but will still share their gift with us.

I can't complain. I feel like mourning but I'll be weathered.

The only thing I can say is:

(To Stapp/Mark/Flip/Brian/Brett and all the Creed crew)

THANK YOU and GOD BLESS YOU!

I haven't seen them in the over 4 years that they've been my favorite band as well. All thanks to Stapp's accident then laryngitis on the Weathered tour, even though I attemped to see 4 shows, that were ALL cancelled.
