Scott Stapp Talks Higher Power and Creed Reforming Download

21:54 Download January 12th

It’s always great to talk with Scott Stapp. It’s even better when he has a new solo album about to drop and a tour with the reunited Creed! We talk about all of this and lots more on this episode of Talkin’ Rock with Meltdown.

His new album is called Higher Power and comes out on March 15th. He told me about the album, how personal it is to him, and working with guitarist Yiannis Papadopoulos and singer, Dorothy Martin. Dorothy is on a song called “If These Walls Could Talk”. Scott told me about getting her on the track. He said after watching her set one night, that he knew immediately that he wanted her on the song. He said she was in tears when she heard the song for the first time. “I’m really excited to share that song with everybody in the world,” he said. 

We also talked about the reformation of Creed. He said they haven’t rehearsed yet, but they have a lot of “secrets” that the year will unveil as far as the band is concerned. “We can’t wait to rock out!” The show here is just about sold out in Detroit. “It appears we’ve connected with a whole new generation of fans” through social media. 

He said getting the band back together was very organic. “I think we all knew it was going to happen at some point, we just didn’t know when.” He’s happy that his kids will be able to see him on stage with Creed. “They really haven’t seen what their dad had done earlier in their life”

He said he went through a lot of stuff publicly and privately, that he says changed him in a positive way. He takes things one day at a time and wants to remain positive about everything that’s going on in his life. He’s excited to play the solo dates on tour with Daughtry coming up, as well as the massive Creed tour later this year. 

Scott’s a good guy and I’m happy for him and the band, as well as the fans! It’s going to be a huge year for him and I wish him all the best…
