Tremonti trying to help Creed's Stapp

Mark Tremonti says he’s trying to help troubled Creed bandmate Scott Stapp.

The singer this week released an emotional video in which he claimed to be living in his truck after his bank account had been frozen, and said he was “under attack.” His comments were made after his wife Jaclyn filed for divorce citing his heavy drug use, violent episodes and even a suicide attempt.

Tremonti reveals he’s been inundated with social media requests from Creed fans, and confirms he’s seen Stapp’s video. The guitarist says via Facebook: “I know everyone is very worried about Scott – I am as well. I tried reaching out but didn’t have any success. I will keep trying, but I think it would be best to keep such personal matters off social media.”

Earlier this month Tremonti told TeamRock he hadn’t spoken to Stapp since Creed’s 2012 comeback tour and added that the band was the “furthest thing” from his mind.

Stef wrote close to 5000 stories during his time as assistant online news editor and later as online news editor between 2014-2016. An accomplished reporter and journalist, Stef has written extensively for a number of UK newspapers and also played bass with UK rock favourites Logan. His favourite bands are Pixies and Clap Your Hands Say Yeah. Stef left the world of rock'n'roll news behind in late 2016 and has since moved to his beloved Canada.
