Great post Velocity ...
I agree 100%. People don't take the time to get to know more about the band and the depth of their music. They only go on what they've heard from other people or judge from only the songs on the radio ... (not that those are not just as good!).
I disagree a bit about the "Scott's character" part. A lot of "Scott's character" is what makes Creed who they are. I know he could've handled things regarding a particular incident better ... but oh well... we still love him!
