Creed Reunion: “Best is yet to come!”

 

Myles Kennedy
reportedly not amused one damn bit.

 

By Fred Mills

 

Insurance company secretaries and waitresses for the Outback
chain of steak houses took to the streets this morning in celebration of the
news that multiplatinum-selling band Creed was reuniting for an album and
summer tour. We are not making this up: yes, the mook-rock legends are back
together, with the original lineup of Scott Stapp, Mark Tremonti, Scott
Phillips and Brian Marshall. See the full tour itinerary, below.

 

Rumors have been circulating on this for half a year, However, rather than indulge our verbiage-reflex, in a rare departure
from BLURT’s usual coverage of such news, we will turn the mic over to the
bandmembers and allow them to hang themselves.

 

Guitarist Mark Tremonti: “We’re all very excited to
reconnect with our fans and each other after six long years.” 

 

Drummer Scott Phillips: “Our career as Creed came to a very
abrupt and unforeseen ending. After reflecting on some of the greatest personal
and professional moments of our lives, we’ve come to realize that we are still
very capable of continuing that career and our friendship on a grander scale
than ever before.” 

 

Bassist Brian Marshall: “This is a development we are all
happy about.  It has been a long time since the four of us have taken the
stage together, and without hesitation or reservation this is something all of
us are in to.  The anticipation to get back out there is electrifying.”

 

Singer Scott Stapp: “Its amazing how life can change and
bring you full circle. Time gave us all a chance to reflect, grow and gain a
deeper appreciation of our friendships, artistic chemistry, passion for music,
and sincere love for our fans!  It’s rare in life to get a second chance
to make a first impression and we embrace the opportunity. We all believe the
BEST IS YET TO COME!”

 

(Ed note: Myles
Kennedy, who formed Alter Bridge with all the Creed dudes not named Scott Stapp after Creed split up, was not available for comment, as unconfirmed reports have him in
London, stalking John Paul Jones and Jimmy Page
.)
