Mark Quote On End Of Creed

This was from the latest issue of Billboard Magazine. Enjoy.

Mark Tremonti, a presenter with his band Alter Bridge, is proud of his Creed past but is ready to leave it in the rear-view mirror. He said he was even opposed to Wind-up's Nov. 23 release of the band's greatest hits.
"To tell you the truth, I didn't want that to come out," Tremonti said. "I did everything I could to say 'I want everybody concentrating on Alter Bridge,' but it went out anyway...Creed, to me, is done. There's nothing else I'm going to work for. I'm not going to spend another minute on Creed. I never will again. Alter Bridge will be everything I work for, and I'm dead set on doing it, even though we've been fighting to get our name out there. I'm never going to stop. Creed is the past."

Thanks for the posting Michael.
I have always said that Mark felt proud to be a member of Creed against of those than always said that he wasnīt.
I understand and support Mark`s decissions whatever are or whatever will be about his music career. I am proud as well to be an AB fan and i am not afraid to say that.
And against of all those that still are hopping for a Creed reunion just say that if Mark made those statements is cos really it wonīt be a Creed reunion. Just say, for ending that for those as well that still have expectations in that reunion, that they have to move on and accept the fact that we always will have Creed music; but the present and the future is AB.
And i wish Mark, and the guys all the luck with the band, and my support.
With all my respect and love for AB

-Gabi-

Thanks for posting that. Confirmation that Mark didn't want the Greatest Hits album released when it was.

I can see where he's coming from. It isn't fun to live in the past. I hope AB becomes huge and they stay around for a long time.

My guess it will happen someday. Wind Up wouldn't give up on a cash cow that easily

they wouldn't be a very good record company if they didn't milk their cash cows lol. however if the band isn't behind such a release it could be mediocre like the greatest hits was. the band has heaps of material that its diehard fans would love to hear.

Alice In Chains had no control over the many greatest hits packages Sony/Columbia put out. There have been rumors for years of leftover Alice stuff, but the remaining members always deny it. The label will pretty much can do what it wants regardless of the band's wishes. I don't think they can do anything with the unreleased stuff, though.

yeah but its the unreleased stuff the fans (at least this one) want. we don't want it to be like AIC where they release as many greatest hits packages as orignal albums.

Very interesting. I think that type of determination will really take Tremonti's endeavors far. If Stapp keeps living off Creed... he won't make it as a solo artist.
