Mark Tremonti: Creed Breakup Was Personal

Mark Tremonti tells Jim Farber of the New York Daily News it wasn’t the music that broke up Creed. “It was personal,” the guitarist said. Singer “Scott [Stapp] separated himself from us. At one time, we were his closest friends. But put people in a bus for years and little things about us just rubbed him the wrong way.” With his new group Alter Bridge, there’s more of a democracy without the controlling Stapp. “In Creed you’d do a lot of work and nothing would materialize,” he said. “This time I can get across all my ideas. And everyone’s open to everyone’s opinions.”
