A quick note about Creed

Well, this is just kind of stuff coming off the top of my brain right now, but I just finished watching the Alcatraz videos... simply brilliant despite Scott's vocal condition.

That prompted me to go back and listen to some long-neglected Creed tracks. It just re-confirmed to me how incredible Creed's music really is. Look past the musical talent and originality of the band... there's something more there.... something that can't effectively be put into words.

I'm not angry that other people bash Creed. I feel bad for them! They listen to popular opinion about the band, believe it, and avoid Creed as a rock "boy band" (LOL, who came up with that notion, anyway?).

They only listen to Creed's singles and think that's the depth of the band. Sad. They are really missing out on something unique and special.

Creed fans know what's going on. They were able to surmount the barrier that others have erected around Creed, and have tapped in to something extraordinary.

Hmmm... Is this the SAME velocityidp we all argued with over the Chicago incident? Gee, what got into you? Have you finally seen the light? :P

ehh... I still don't agree with the chicago incident or its aftermath. I never claimed that incident would hamper my view of Creed's music -- just Stapp's character.

Now why did you have to bring that up?

Glad to see you back!!

Very good to see you back. I know what you mean, those who don't get into Creed and hear the entire album (all 3 of them) are TOTALLY missing out.
By the way, did you ever get a response for all those messages you sent in to Creed a while back????

That was awesome, what you did. I was glad to be part of it.

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!

Have to agree. It was a great post and I loved everything you said. They do need to be appreciated more for their music but unfortunately they are not. We as fans know how wonderful they are and how their music has helped all of us get through one thing or another. Thank you for your post

I tip my hat to you velocity!!! I agree with you 100%!!! Scott Stapp has an extraordinary voice. And the musical talent of Mark Tremonti and Scott Phillps!!! I have really turned my husband into a Creed groupie!!! He is a musician himself (a drummer) and he says he really has a lot of respect for all of them. Infact Flips drumset has inspired him to get a new one!!!
