Creed news you may (or may not?) have been dreading: They're reuniting

Creed_l_2

Creed_l_2Almost six years after his impossibly popular band Creed broke up, lead singer Scott Stapp has decided it’s time to reunite the old gang, according to a story on People.com. In case you’ve blissfully forgotten about Creed (tell us your secret!), they were the late ‘90’s Christian-rock crossover superstars whose songs like “Higher,” “With Arms Wide Open,” and “What’s This Life For?” ruled the radio – and haunted our nightmares. But by 2003, the band had a major fall from grace (Stapp’s antics at a show in Chicago actually had fans suing for a refund, although the suit was eventually thrown out by a judge) and disbanded. Remaining Creed members have since moved on to groups like Alter Bridge, but the freshly reunited Creed will now release a new album called Full Circle and will tour the U.S. late this summer. While ‘90’s band reunion tours are nothing new these days, it seems like No Doubt and Blink-182 still have some pretty ardent admirers. Am I being naive in thinking Creed might have lost a lot of good will once their fans starting suing them? What do you think, Music Mixers? Does the Creed reunion make you scratch your head (and cover your ears), too? Or did you go to the top of a mountain to sing your joy?
