Remember Scott Stapp, that Christian rock dude who got kicked out of Creed?
His name holds a special (and unfortunate) place in the heart of many Chicago music fans. While he called it exhaustion, others said that he supposedly put together a shitty, drug-induced performance back in 2002 that caused some fans to actually file suit against Creed for the show. Now think about it, THAT is a bad show.
“On November 24th (Thanksgiving), 311 had the day off in Baltimore, Maryland. Chad Sexton, SA Martinez & P-Nut were relaxing in a hotel lounge with their wives and friends watching a basketball game on television. Scott Stapp entered the bar. He appeared intoxicated. He drank a shot at the bar and then threw his shot glass, smashing it on the bar. He was acting belligerent and got into an argument with patrons sitting at the bar. He then sat down next to SA and his wife. He made a disrespectful and crude remark to SA’s wife. Chad and SA asked him to step away. He then sucker-punched Chad. Scott was looking for a fight – and that’s what he got. A fight ensued. Soon the police arrived and everyone was restrained and questioned; and Scott was ultimately asked to leave the hotel.”
