Commercial success!?

Where to put this question? On Alter Bridge or on Scott Stapp? Well, let's put in between!

Which album do you think will be most commercial successful? AB:s One Day Remains or Scott Stapp's upcoming solo album?

I bet they'll do about the same. AB went gold. Probably won't ever go platinum at this point. Stapp will probably have the same success unless he has a huge breakout hit.....AB hasn't had that BIG hit yet.

Stapp, no doubt about it. His effort will be way more radio friendly and will reach more audiences and radios than AB's sound.

I voted for Alter Bridge. My reasoning is this: Most anti-Creed sentaments were directed mainly at Stapp. I never heard anything against the other guys (except for Brian after he left). I believe that people who refuse to listen to Creed because of Stapp would listen to AB. Stapp, on the other hand, may have some trouble. Especially considering the things I shouldn't say. *cough* Chicago *cough* Prednizone *cough* Weathered Tour *cough*.

ditto to what Colin said. most people hated (or, if that be too strong a word, disliked) Creed because of Stapp & his actions. it's comparable (though not to the same degree) to Fred Durst & Limp Bizkit. I (and prolly many others) dislike Limp solely b/c Durst's a dick. Nothing against the other fellas; I don't even know who they are. And the same could likely be said for Mark, Flip & Brian.

You know what, this is something I've thought about since the break up. And I've always come to this conculsion:Stapp will have more success on pop(mainstream) radio and Alter Bridge will have more success on Rock radio. I just have this gut feeling about it, that Stapp will have an extremely successful solo career and will sell millions of records. Yeah, some of the media will still hate him, but they hate artists like Ashlee Simpson, and she's sold tons of records. I think Stapp's music will be too "soft" for Rock radio, while Alter Bridge will enjoy great success on Rock radio. I do have a feeling that Broken Wings will be a huge radio hit, though, and that will get AB into the mainstream. But overall, I think Stapp will be highly successful on the mainstream stations(because his music will probably be pop radio friendly) and Alter Bridge will be highly successful on the Rock stations. It's just a gut feeling.

How much did Metallica's first album "Kill 'Em All" sell at the start? Well, NOT much. But now they're famous and it has done really well!! So when AB releases their second or thired album ODR my go far beyond Platinum.

I agree about the radio friendly stuff, but I doubt he will be more successfull than AB.

As I said, I think he'll be more successful on pop radio. Really, I don't know whether AB or Stapp will be more successful overall. Personally, I'd like to see them both do equally good. Though I doubt AB or Stapp will ever be able to achieve the amount of success that Creed did. But it could happen.

I can see where your going with this, and I think I agree with you. Afterall, I have heard Relearn Love played on Air1 (Christian radio) a few times. It'd be a bit of a switch (Stapp on more Pop-ish stations) but I could probably get use to it.

Yeah. Fred Durst is douche. I use to know the rest of the guys names (when I was in High School) but don't care enough to remember them. Except for Wes Borland. He played either guitar or bass. Can't remember which.

I've never been a Limp Bizkit fan, but I think Durst is an idiot. But like I've said before, I really only try to pay attention to the music. I know what's been said about Stapp, but I don't care. The music is what matters to me.

I've never heard Relearn Love on the radio, but I've never listened to Air 1. I do occasionally listen to the local Christian stations(and I've heard some good stuff) but mainly stick to the Rock stations. I don't think Wind Up gave RL the push it deserved. What happened to that music video? It was made but never was released.

Stapp's voice won't sell. Firstly, he sucks at singing and people are pretty much over the barritone voice. Alter Bridge does need a big single to boost their sales. Maroon 5 started off slow, but once they released "This Love" or whatever it's called, they went up in the charts and finally got into the Billboard 200. OYE was a bad choice as a single, but BW and DTML are sure to bring them into the top 200 again.

Yeah, that's problably why Creed never made it big.

I think Broken Wings will be that boost!

First of all, you know that engineers can do wonders with technology to make your voice sound good on an album... so a voice isn't an issue. Stapp can sound good on an album. It's the live performance that I question.

I'm not really sure as far as commercial success goes, but I would have to say that Scott Stapp would probably have an edge over Alter Bridge, if he ever releases an album, simply because of the fact that (and I'm assuming) his songs will be more radio-friendly. His songs will probably hit several station formats - Rock, Alt-Rock, Top 40, Pop, etc. So far Alter Bridge has really only hit Rock stations. I guess that could change with Broken Wings, but who knows until it's released.

Let's remember, commercial success doesn't mean anyone is better than one another. I'm sure many here hated when Creed got so big. I know I did. I found it much more enjoying to see Creed play at smaller venues. The outdoor ampitheaters, although were amazing to see them play at, just didn't have the same feel as the smaller arenas and/or 1,000 seat venues.

I agree with Steve, I think its that anti-creed sentiment that will boost Stapp's career over Alter Bridge. Stapp musical choice has always been radio friendly. If you compare all the Anti-Creed kiddies and the bashers we get, you'll notice that thier musical flavor is pretty much the same and not as radio friendly. For example, Compare Open Your Eyes to Relearn Love. As for his voice, anyone with motivation and the appropriate software can make Myles sounds like a real man. Not to mention its not concerts that get the musicians rich, its thier CD sales. Dont agree, look at these metal bands that ONLY do summer festivals.
