Creed Reunion Taking Shape

December 2, 2008 9:05 AM ET

The rumored Robert Plant-less Led Zeppelin tour might spawn another unexpected reunion. With Alter Bridge singer Myles Kennedy in the running to take over Plant's duties, his bandmates will reportedly reconnect with singer Scott Stapp to reform Creed, which disbanded back in 2004.

According to reports, "significant dollars" are on the table for a proposed Creed< reunion tour. However, a spokesperson says "There have been some talks, but it would be premature to comment on them at this time." Since their breakup, Creed's guitarist, bassist and drummer put out two albums as Alter Bridge with Kennedy, while Stapp released a solo record in 2005. If the reunion should happen, and sources say an announcement is "imminent," a tour will likely follow in 2009, meaning that America will have to carry the heavy burden of both Creed and Nickelback touring the nation at the same time.

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
