TV's Office Star Creed Bratton Rocks New Album
"Bounce Back is more than just the title of my new CD," says the star. "It's what happened with my life and career." A founding member of the seminal 60s rock band The Grass Roots, Bratton recorded and toured extensively behind the back-to-back monster hit singles, "Let's Live for Today" and "Midnight Confession," which became early 60s youth anthems.
Several original members of the band reunited in 2000 for the 35th Anniversary of the historic rock venue The Whiskey A Go Go, where bands such as The Byrds, The Turtles, among others have played. "This CD has been in my brain for 20 years.... I was talking to James Cameron and we both agreed that we had to wait for technology to catch up to our visions," says Bratton.
Bratton's Dunder Mifflin co-workers got a preview of the actor's guitar chops in a previous episode of The Office when Bratton rescued a not-quite-up-to-the-task boss Michael Scott from band jam embarrassment. When asked what people could expect from his new release he replied, "Listening to Bounce Back will result in a paradigm shift in consciousness... you will never hear music or view life the same way again......and I'm down playing this a bit."
