Creed's Mark Tremonti Explains Rift With Scott Stapp

(Classic Rock) Mark Tremonti says Creed singer Scott Stapp stopped talking to him when he realized the band's 2009 reunion wouldn't be permanent. The guitarist previously told how Stapp travelled on a separate bus to the rest of the band on the tour, and he now reveals Stapp assumed Tremonti would walk away from his other band Alter Bridge to devote himself full-time to Creed.

Tremonti tells Kerrang: "I think Scott just thought that we'd get back together with Creed and we'd forget about Alter Bridge. He doesn't understand how hard we've worked to build Alter Bridge.

"When you singlehandedly bring a band to its knees like he had done, and we all split up, and then you build something, you're not all of a sudden going to just jump back to the other band and forget what you've built.

"I think he took all his frustrations out on me. We were having lunch in catering. He was like, 'Hey man, what are you doing in January,' and I'm like, 'I'm going to the studio with Alter Bridge, we've talked about this.' He's like, 'Really?' From then on we didn't speak. On tour. On stage. Didn't speak." Read more here.
