TIMELINE

  • CreedCreed consists of Scott Stapp on vocals, Mark Tremonti on guitar, Brian Marshall on bass, and Scott Phillips on drums and hails from Florida. Creed formed in 1995 (after briefly naming themselves 'Naked Toddler'). The band is rooted in rock even though lead singer Stapp was raised in a deeply religious household in which rock music was not allowed. By his late teens, Stapp left home and began tapping into his rock persona by writing music.

1997....

  • Creed - 'My Own Prison'August 26: Creed released their debut LP My Own Prison (originally recorded for less than $6,000). Creed became the first act to have 4 #1 hits from a debut LP on the rock charts. The LP topped the charts in New Zealand.

1998....

  • September 19: Creed topped the Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks chart for 6 weeks with "What's This Life For."

1999....

  • July 25: Creed appeared at Woodstock '99 in Rome, New York.
  • Creed - 'Human Clay'September 8: Creed topped the Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks chart for 17 weeks with "Higher."
  • September 28: Creed released Human Clay and the LP spent 2 weeks at the top of the Billboard 200 Albums chart. Stapp said of the LP: "We're the type of band that functions really well under pressure, and there was definitely a pressure to try to top ourselves this time. Not so much what we sell, because we don't really care about that. We wanted to make a really great record. The band’s goal has always been to make records that are solid from start to finish; records that take you through an entire range of emotions." The LP also topped the charts in Canada.
  • Creed - "One" (Single)October: Stapp walked off the stage at a concert in Houston after 3 songs due to straining his vocal chords.
  • October 16: Creed topped the Billboard 200 LP chart for 2 weeks with Human Clay.
  • October 16: Creed topped the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart for 3 weeks with "Higher."
  • January 25: Creed could be heard on the soundtrack for Scream 3 on the tracks "What If" and "Is This The End."
  • April 11: Creed could be heard on the soundtrack for Jailbait on the track "Pity For A Dime."
  • June: Marshall had some harsh words for Pearl Jam (who they are often compared to) during a radio interview: "Eddie Vedder wishes he could write like Scott Stapp." Stapp refuted the comments on their website a few days later. The band also got into a war-of-words with Limp Bizkit during the month.
  • Creed - "With Arms Wide Open" (Single)August: It was announced that Brian Marshall (a founding member and the one who named the band) left the group for "personal and professional differences." The band was not seeking a permanent replacement for Marshall. Brett Hestla was hired as a bassist while on tour. A statement read: "Creed and founding member Brian Marshall have decided to part ways on friendly terms, citing personal and professional differences. Marshall and Creed are discussing terms for his involvement in the future releases of previously recorded but unreleased material...."
  • August 5: Creed hit the ARC Weekly Top 40 with "With Arms Wide Open."
  • February 28: Creed appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone.
  • April: Creed had to cancel all remaining tour dates at the end of the month and into May when Stapp was in a car accident.
  • October: Creed had to postpone more tour dates due to Stapp's 'acute laryngitis' caused by the heavy touring schedule.

2003....

2004....

  • June 3: Creed announced they had broken up and the decision was made earlier in the year after Stapp and Tremonti weren't able to agree on the direction of the band's music - as Tremonti explained: "We had gotten together two or three times and nothing happened. We got our instruments and played, but neither of us was taking it seriously. We were just running in circles. There wasn't a vibe like on the previous records. It felt very job-like. We knew that it would take us years to get a record out."

2005....

2008...

2009...

  • Creed - "Rain" (Single)November 14: Creed topped the Billboard Rock Albums chart for 1 week, Alternative Albums chart for 1 week, and Hard Rock Albums chart for 1 week with Full Circle.
