Here's an interview with Kerrang:
https://www.kerrang.com/features/scott- ... as-spared/

A few excerpts:
With hindsight, is there anything you would have done differently in terms of reacting to your depression?
“Knowing what I know now, I would have gone to someone who specialises in that and I would have put everything on hold realising that it wasn’t all about today, right now, this month – that all that would have still been there had I taken the time to get the help that I needed. And everything probably would have been different had I said, ‘Hey – I’ve got to take six months or a year off to get the help that I need so this can continue on forever.’

Had he done that, Creed would probably still be a very succesful band...

musically and career-wise, I lost 10 years. That’s 10 years I could have been putting out records and building on my career
...
When I was in those dark places, there was no creativity, there was no inspiration, there was no music.
...
I think I’m much more candid and clear and concise in my thoughts. I’ve matured in the sense that I don’t hide behind analogy and innuendo and this idealistic, poetic façade – which I really think was just an excuse to not speak your truth.

I liked that poetic façade!

And it was after that that you were diagnosed with bipolar disorder?
“Yeah. That was the initial diagnosis, but a lot of that they eventually determined was drug-induced. And so the final diagnosis was depression with anxiety. So the ending diagnosis a year later was major depressive disorder and anxiety. And then, of course, addiction. And that was the whole process of getting to the core issue – and discovering what the core issue was. Basically, when I would abuse substances and alcohol, it would present itself like a bipolar episode – and that’s why that initial diagnosis was made. But after a year of sobriety and living, things progressed and they realised that free of substances I wasn’t actually bipolar.”

So he's not bipolar, then.
I hope he's on the right medication and doesn't relapse in the future.

Same here. That's what made his lyrics so unique!

He talks about it in this interview, where he also goes into more details about Name and Gone Too Soon:


Here's also a GREAT video interview with WAAF, where he shares a couple of interesting early Creed anecdotes:

Have a bad feeling the show I have front row tickets to will be canceled if people don’t buy some tickets.

Kinda sounds like they used vocal playback during the verses.

Yup, something's definitely weird. I hope we'll soon hear another live version.

By the way, the way Stapp acts on stage (crouching/leaning forward ) is kinda reminiscent of his Creed days.
I'm still not sure it's a song that will work live, though.

I don't know why he's using a backing vocal track because he's singing it just fine.

I also dislike how when the the interviewer said yiannis sounded good on the record, when he didn't play on the record - and stapp didn't correct him. Stapps own lyrics from "Fear" - "Staying silent is a crime". He should've corrected the interviewer.

Yiannis didn't write but that doesn't mean he didn't play. There's nothing in the booklet (as far as I know) but Wikipedia credits Stapp's band as the performers on the album

Here is an interview where he briefly talks about his son freezing on stage !


And another angle of Red Clouds:

It sounds like he's indeed using a backing track, which is probably a first in his career. I can't understand what made him do that.

That's strange. Usually the band that plays on the albums is credited in the booklet. Under the song tittles there is a bunch of names, I figured it was them who played on the record.

So there are 3 or 4 songs in addition that were recorded but not released on the record! I want to hear them. And AoA is done for lol. And he talks about his instrumental ability, he's just good enough to write with them.

Why would he write with instruments? I usually use a pen.
