originated in Tallahassee, Fla., in 1995 when old high
school mates Scott Stapp and Mark Tremonti decided to
fulfill their longtime dream of forming a rock band. Calling
on bassist Brian Marshall and drummer Scott Phillips, the
progressive sound of Creed was born.
with the classic rock traditions of Led Zeppelin and the
grinding resonance of Rush, Creed builds a modern sound on a
traditional rock 'n' roll foundation.
featured on the band's first release, My Own Prison,
deal largely with feelings of isolation and solitude.
Written during an unstable interim in Stapp's life, the
tracks address fear, change, rebellion and new discovery.
Though the album deals with some disheartening issues, the
end result is a powerful, meaningful and very inspirational
collection of good old fashioned rock 'n' roll.
