Especially since it failed big time in the charts in the past.
That's what makes Tremonti so great and this is something that Stapp, as a musician, should have resolved long ago.
Your job is to create music. Pick up a guitar and vow that you will become one of the best at creating and writing with it.
1. IMHO, there's nothing great about the band Tremonti. It's Alter Bridge with metal riffs, the songs structures are formulaic, Mark is still an average singer in the studio (and a bad one live), and the band members don't particularly stand out to me.
2. A lot of singers can't write music. That doesn't mean they're not talented.
A lot of musicians can't write interesting lyrics or be a good frontman. That doesn't mean they're not talented either.
That's why Creed was so great: it combined Mark's (then) incredible music with Stapp's (then) incredible lyrics/voice/stage presence. Whether they like it or not, these guys were meant to write with each other.
