Creed, a standout amongst the new spawn of rock bands that perpetually stirs a vast collection of award-winning masterpieces.
Regarded as one of the post-grunge bands in its genre, Creed, formerly known as the Naked Toodler, entered the music world in Tallahassee, Florida in 1995.
Creed, which composes, Scott Stapp (vocals), Mark Tremonti (guitars), Scott Phillips (drums) and Brett Hestla (bass), started out performing at a live music bar owned by singer and songwriter, Jeff Hanson. It was former band bassist, Brian Marshall who came up with the idea of changing the bands name into “Creed”.

Creed Breaking Up 06-04-2004
The biggest rock band of the past decade has broken up.
After nearly 10 years together and more than 24 million albums sold, Creed have decided to put an end to their string of multiplatinum records and chart-topping singles. The choice was made months ago, when guitarist Mark Tremonti and singer Scott Stapp reconvened after a yearlong hiatus and ran into problems.
