Former Creed frontman Scott Stapp revealed in a new WRIF interview that he spoke to Mark Tremonti just a couple of months ago.

He said, “It’s undeniable that Tremonti and I had a special chemistry and writing relationship.”

When asked about the last time they spoke, he said, “Oh man, probably a couple of months ago. Love those guys, always love my brothers in Creed. We’re all busy working on our other projects, and passionate about those projects.”

He also discussed getting clean and sober.

“My wife and my kids were critical in helping me get sober. It got to the point where it was either get sober or lose my wife and kids, man, and that’s about the lowest rock bottom that I could possibly have gotten to. So they were critical.”

Stapp said the rock lifestyle “definitely” contributed to him “going down that wrong path. I just had so much in front of me, and being so naïve, walking into it, I just didn’t know how to handle it, and it got a hold of me.

And around the same time, I had my first onset of depression. And you combine that with self-medicating, with alcohol and whatever else you can find, and it’s a bad scenario, man. And it took me years to really find out what was going on. I had to get to the other side of it. And it’s so nice to be five years on the other side of a wild ride.”

    Met Scott Stapp this week. He was so nice and signed all my stuff. Got a picture with him. This may sound like blasphemy but he talked about how much Cornell influenced him as an artist. He has a new solo song called Name that could easily have been on Carry On or Euphoria Mourning.
