Scott Stapp (Creed) To Play Frank Sinatra In Upcoming Ronald Reagan Biopic

According to Billboard, Creed’s Scott Stapp will be playing Frank Sinatra in the new Ronald Reagan biopic “Reagan.” The frontman will be in a scene in which Sinatra is singing at the Ambassador Hotel’s Cocoanut Grove club in Hollywood as part of a fundraiser for Reagan’s second California gubernatorial campaign. Stapp said the following about that:

“Sinatra in performance mode was an exercise in restraint. He had this steely, stylish swagger and his sheer presence commanded a room. I was excited to join the cast and blown away by the on-set attention to detail, style, and overall production.”

Scott Stapp And Mark Tremonti Are Sitting On “Eight Or Nine” Creed Songs That They Wrote In 2012

Creed still don’t have plans to reunite, but if they do it looks like they already have some new material to work with. During an appearance on the “Stop! Drop & Talk” podcast, Scott Stapp revealed that him and Mark Tremonti are sitting on “eight or nine songs” that they wrote in 2012.

Stapp said the following when asked about a Creed reunion:

“I actually was just with Mark and Scott Phillips Friday. Everything is good. Everything is positive. We are friends. And communication is there.

Nothing is planned. Right now, there is nothing on the schedule. There is nothing that I am keeping from you.

When there’s an announcement to be made [about a possible reunion], I promise you guys will know.”

He also added the following when asked if there is leftover material from the “Full Circle” sessions:

“Mark and I got together, I think it was in 2012, and I actually crashed at his place for, I wanna say, a couple of weeks — I can’t remember exactly — and we wrote eight or nine songs. So we’ve got some stuff that we put together in 2012. I was listening to a couple of ’em the other day, and I was, like, ‘You know what? It doesn’t sound old to me.’ It’s something we could demo for a new record. I’m not saying that that’s gonna happen. Don’t put words in my mouth. I’m just saying we did write some songs, and we’re sitting on those.”

Scott Stapp On The Possibility Of A Creed Reunion: “Anything Is Possible”

During a recent appearance on “Whiplash” with Full Metal Jackie, Scott Stapp discussed the possibility of a Creed reunion. He said the following:

“For the longest time, there’s been nothing but positivity and support for each other with the guys and myself. And so anything is possible. If that time comes, I guarantee you, and you can be sure, that we will let the whole world know. Okay? But for now, though, I’m just looking forward to when it’s possible to get back on stage. And hopefully that’s in October for my European [solo] tour, which has still not been postponed or canceled. I’m excited to go to Europe and play these new songs off ‘The Space Between The Shadows’. So I’m just praying and hoping for the best, and I can’t wait to get back out there and get on tour.”

Scott Stapp (Creed) Premieres “Survivor” Lyric Video

Scott Stapp (Creed) has premiered a lyric video for his song “Survivor.” This track is from his latest solo album “The Space Between The Shadows.”

Stapp commented

“‘Survivor’ is about a mindset when facing a challenge or adversity. Believing you will overcome and affirming you are a survivor, even in the midst of crisis. Positive affirmation, self-realization, speaking and believing things into reality. Having a survivor mindset during a crisis helps give you strength to keep fighting, enduring, maintaining courage and continuing to do what you have to do to make it to the other side, to overcome, to win, to survive.

He also added:

“To me, all survivors are heroes. If you’re working each day to overcome through the sheer force of faith, will, and strength, then you’re a hero. A survivor.”

Scott Stapp (Creed) Premieres New Song “Gone Too Soon”

Scott Stapp (Creed) has premiered a new song titled “Gone Too Soon” via Billboard. This track is from his new solo album “The Space Between The Shadows,” which will be released on July 19.

“Gone Too Soon” was partly inspired by the deaths of Chris Cornell (Soundgarden, etc.) and Chester Bennington (Linkin Park). Stapp said the following about that:

“Just as a human being my heart broke for their wives and for their children. I had that very human response of just sorrow, and then it went a step further into self-reflection. Man, that easily could’ve been my path, and on some occasions it almost was my path. It reminded me of where my life would go if I went back and returned to the life I led before.”

He continued:

“Somewhere around the time Chester passed, and we had already been reeling from Cornell’s passing, I was flipping through the news and saw the suicide rate for (U.S. military) vets was skyrocketing. And all these people are OD-ing from heroin, drug addictions, opioids. The school shootings. It was just a collection of things that all hit me at once. So it was inspired by a series of events that just came together to impact me as a human being, all at once, and then that song came to life.”
