Why The Lead Singer Of Creed Isn't Around Anymore

Whether they want to admit it or not, '90s kids remember the band Creed and probably enjoyed their music at least briefly. Their brand of Pearl Jam-esque hard rock combined with spiritual lyrics just vague enough to reach the mainstream without seeming overly preachy propelled them to the top of the charts. Singer Scott Stapp became a major star through the band, though his fame was ultimately fleeting thanks to a brutal combination of inner demons and terrible life decisions.

    The music world is just up to its ukeleles with performers and has been forever and then some. The earliest musical instruments in history, just some very simple bone flutes, date back 40,000 years, according to National Geographic. So people have been making tunes for about as long as people have had mouths and fingers with which to make music. You can bet that almost 40,000 years ago someone was probably listening to a flute player thinking "this guy sucks and his music is attracting too many sabre-toothed tigers."

    Oh, how the mighty have fallen. One second, an artist can be on top of the world, selling out shows and enjoying a #1 hit on the radio only to wake up years later with no more success. In the 2010s, some musicians quickly peaked in popularity, but are still working at a smaller scale. Remember Gotye's "Somebody That I Used to Know" back in 2011? He (say it with us, "go-tee-ay") comfortably went touring around Australia with a rare instrument called an ondioline, The Guardian reported. Other musicians were not so lucky, and slowly faded away in popularity or even worse, ruined their reputations overnight and were "canceled" by the public.
