Creeds claims

Guitar Artists Forum · 12/1/2001 3:33 PM
The other day I was Listening to the radio and heard something that the singer from Creed proclaimed about thier new albumn. He said,
" this albumn is as creative and artistic as U2's Joshua Tree" and also on a recent segment on VH1 stated, " Creed is as misunderstood in the press as Led Zeppelin".
For some reason this upset me that a PearleJam wannabe group compares themselves with great rock Legends, like Zeppelin and U2. In my oppinion I think the should work more towards actually creating something new and artistic instead of talkin #!!t
what do you think?

Is it me or does it seem like the guys from Creed always need to say odd stuff in the press to get attention?

i didn't like that they compared themselves to Zep and they don't even come close, maybe if creed aquires more music styles instead of just slow crap and in your face anger songs

I think creed are going in a better direction than the rap metal bands.

In the sixties, Donovan once claimed he was gonna be bigger than the Beatles. If I recall, he fell a little short of that. Give Creed thirty years. That'll settle things.

Bit of irony: (Beatles) hung around with Dion at the Marahisha's (sp?) place in India. It was there that John (and possibly Paul and George) learned another form of finger-picking from Donovan (examples: Dear Prudence & Julia to name a few).

I'm not in contact with my book/info collection at the moment (to get specific) but I do know that Donovan has helped (chords and/or lyrics) on a couple or so of their tunes. Of course, no credit.

Don't even get me started on Creed. When I first heard them, I thought, "Who is this guy, and why does he think he can sing?" Of course, I thought the lyrics were something like "Sorta brain-dead on a Sunday morning", or maybe even "Like a beatdown on a Sunday morning", with would've actually been kinda clever. But anyway, later I sort of grew to like Creed, at least a few songs, though not enough to buy their albums or anything. Then the song, not to mention the video, for "With Arms Wide Open" made me realize how pathetic Creed truly was. I will always treasure that image of their guitarist trying to look like the guy for Metallica and noodling away over their latter-day power ballad.

More stuff that annoys me about Creed, besides their music. The guy claimed "Eddie Vedder wishes he could write the songs I write." And he gets in fights at bars, a lot. If he's supposed to be a Christian, I don't see much meekness or humility from him.

I guess I dont like them is the over saturation of their stuff, particularly by a local radio station in Appleton. But I never was impressed by their lead singer's voice sounds more like Layne Staley (Alice in Chains) then Eddie Vedder. But they are the flavor of the month.

What the heck...lets rag on Creed

Its kinda hard to gauge which is bigger... the degree of pop-embracing cheesiness that this band has succumbed to Or Scott Stapp's ego. I think the bar-fight incidents are hilarious. With the high-school-boy mentality that he has, Stapp probably brags about how he sucker-punched some poor unsuspecting sot and made him fall down the stairs and soil his trousers.

I like Creed, they are catchy. And if we are comparing them to U2, who has had the bigger ego, Bono or Stapp?

Judge them by what they do onstage and in the studio, not their actions once the instruments are put down.

Well, true. Bono's constant dark sunglass-wearing (even inside, when he's visiting Congress) gets on my nerves, but at least I like their music. I don't like Creed's, because I think it's a very tired sound that they have, whereas U2 always sounds fresh to me.
