Personalities | Creed | Nineties | Rock

(Vocal/instrumental group, 1995–2004, 2009–present)

One of the biggest post-grunge rock acts, formed in Tallahassee, Florida, in 1995, Scott Stapp (vocals), Mark Tremonti (guitar, vocals), Brian Marshall (bass) and Scott Phillips (drums) self-financed their debut album My Own Prison (1998). This collection of powerful rock tunes and genuinely spiritual lyrics went on to spawn a record four US No. 1 singles including ‘One’ and ‘What’s This Life For’. Human Clay (1999) and Weathered (2001) followed but troubled Stapps, and the band (now renamed Alter Bridge) agreed to go their separate ways in 2004.
