Re: The Official SCOTT STAPP Thread

That's a good question. I know I've heard it here and there, but I have never made a full list. I'm not always sure it's a B-3 organ, keyboards or mellotron, but I think those little touches link Creed's music to the classic rock sound. You can hear some of those instruments on What's This Life For,...

Re: The Official SCOTT STAPP Thread

Eh.
Those musicians are competent, but it sounds like they've never played outside of the studio before.
I find it interesting that he had a keyboard player, though.
I've always thought that the B-3 organ added a lot to the original Creed sound.

Re: Walk The Sky Production Quality.

If I remember correctly, Evlis also wanted to replace the drummer, because he wasn't good enough in the studio. After working with Elvis, Trivium hired Josh Wilbur, and man did it make a difference. It felt like they were finally unleashed creatively, and their next two albums were wery well receive...

I had no idea Ben Flanders was such a soulful guitar player: https://youtu.be/kJg-CzpB9TY https://youtu.be/HM44Fv38qvo I never thought much of him, but it turns out he's actually quite gifted as a lead guitar player. From a pure technical stand point, Ben, Yannis and Sammy Boller all are much more a...

Re: MK II

I hope we finally get to hear his bluesy side. It's been a long time coming, and I'm convinced he could excel in that genre, because he's got the required chops and soul to pull it off.
I also hope they keep it as raw and as the first album.

Re: Creed getting back together in 2020?

I saw that comment on Blabbermouth: Mark's brother Michael commenting on a posted article about the rumor. "The rumor is false. No reunion. As soon as Touring is possible again Alter Bridge are starting right back up to continue the Walk The Sky tour. As we speak Mark has written 4 songs for Tr...

In case you've not seen it in the AB subforum, here's an interview with brian where he talks about Creed's early days and writing songs with Mark. As usual with him, it's a great read! https://crypticrock.com/interview-brian-marshall-of-alter-bridge/ there was a point in my journey where I wasn’t wi...

Re: Tremonti on His Relationship With Stapp

Productionwise FC for some was even their very best. Sorry, but no. I still have functioning ears, and Full Circle sounds like absolute crap. Everything about it is awful production-wise. I'm sure Elvis could have made it worse, though. :lol Irritating how some over here keep goiing on and on and o...

@riemslag1: yes, Creed was MUCH bigger than Alter Bridge. They had a dozen number one songs, sold dozens of millions of albums, and were played on radio all the time. They packed arenas, played in the Olympics and were a cultural phenomenon. Those are just facts. I can understand Mark wanting to do ...

Re: Tremonti on His Relationship With Stapp

I don't need to see his letters. Just look at Mark's face anytime Creed or Stapp is mentioned. It's like the life is immediately sucked out of him, whereas he always has a smile when he talks about AB or his solo band. Also, remember this: https://youtu.be/AOyK_dwZnJE?t=230 It's not like I'm up to d...

Great performance indeed. This is a really good line-up, and I especially liked the solo during the first song. Anyone who criticizes this band (which is what Stapp haters usually do) probably hasn't actually listened to them... Hopefully, that blonde dude will record on the next album, and give mor...

Re: Tremonti on His Relationship With Stapp

Things are not so black and white. Stapp is not as bad as some people here say he is. You have to remember he was on pills both times, and the first time, it was because of a car accident 8 months before. I mean, when you listen to Mark, it sounds like the Chicago performance from 2002 was the worst...

Mark can do whatever he wants, but I hope he doesn't use the "I don't have time" excuse next time he's asked about Creed V, because right now, they ALL have all the time in the world to fine-tune it and record it.
