Interview With Creed Frontman Scott Stapp
Scott Stapp lead singer of Creed talks about 'Sinner's Creed' memoir and more
Oceanside, NY (I-Newswire) October 3, 2012 - After a very public breakup and a deadly struggle with his addiction to alcohol Scott Stapp, frontman of the band Creed, is not only back on stage but back to a healthy lifestyle and out with his first book.
In a recent interview with TheCelebrityCafe.com, Stapp spoke of his personal memoir, touring again, and new music.
While writing his memoir Stapp had an eye opening experience that finally allowed him to come to numerous conclusions about life but mostly about how he wanted to live his.
"It was a journey of self-discovery. A very, very cathartic experience. I realized that life is difficult with struggles and it's not a piece of cake. You don't need a bag full of rocks to carry around with you and that's what I begun to do. Writing Sinner's Creed gave me that opportunity to start cleaning out that bag of rocks, clearing out things in my life that were making it more difficult."
Stapp started writing his memoir at Willing Way, a treatment center located in Statesboro, Georgia, with fellow friend and writer David Ritz who dealt with similar issues. With the book's release date arriving shortly in October Stapp speaks of how he perceives his addiction now and what he hopes to share with his audience.
"This happened for a reason. This doesn't mean that my life is worthless and I ruined everything. This is something I can share now and hope that if there's anyone else out there going through this that they can relate and it can encourage change. And that goes out to any human being no matter what they are involved in."
In the interview Stapp also speaks of how it feels to be touring in the United States again and his appreciation for his fans.
"The shows and the fans have been amazing...I have appreciation for my fans that I could have never had had I not felt that I lost it all. I got to live that old cliche: "You don't know what you have until it's gone." Being back in this place and performing and feeling like a human being again -- it's just that I'm so thankful and it shows. It's the energy I bring to the performances because I want my fans to know."
For a more in depth look at Stapp's struggles and ultimate rejuvenation be on the lookout for Sinner's Creed which will be released on October 2, 2012.
