Biography

A charismatic, full-throttle rock singer-songwriter, Scott Stapp achieved fame as the frontman and co-songwriter of Creed. The band, which fused spiritual imagery with soaring arena rock, became one of the most successful of the new millennium with such multi-platinum-selling albums as 1997's My Own Prison, 1999's Human Clay and 2001's Weathered. Their many hits included the No. 1 singles "Higher" and the Grammy-winning "With Arms Wide Open" as well as the Top Five hit "My Sacrifice." Despite their success, or perhaps because of it, the intense, earnest Stapp and the band became popular targets for criticism and jokes - with critics labeling them a wannabe Pearl Jam - and eventually broke up in 2004. Dealing with addiction issues and personal demons, Stapp attempted suicide and had several run-ins with the law, but pulled himself together to release his solo debut, 2005's The Great Divide and to reunite Creed, showcasing an increased humility and less demanding nature in his 2012 autobiography Sinner's Creed. Although, like many rock stars, his talent, charisma and ego were all larger than life, Scott Stapp wrote and sang immensely moving and memorable anthems that spoke to millions of fans.
