Man Arrested For Impersonating Creed Guitarist

MTV News reports A Florida man was arrested in Clearwater on Sunday for fraud relating to his impersonation of guitarist Mark Tremonti. Despite being more than 11 years older than Tremonti, 40-year-old Kevin Eckenrod successfully posed as the Florida rocker for the past few weeks, staying in beach hotels as Tremonti, handing out autographed publicity photos and drawing up to 30 fans at a time while holding court at beach bars, according to a Clearwater Police Department spokesperson.
After his arrest, Eckenrod told police, “It’s my hustle. I am a stone-cold alcoholic and it’s my way of getting my drinks and a place to stay.” He also admitted, “This is getting old, but you have to admit I do look like the guy from Creed.” Eckenrod is being held in Pinellas County Jail on $20,000 bail.
