From touring the world, playing before thousands of people, to being in utter ruin. Such a schizophrenic life journey is the one he has lived Scott stapp, the singer of Creed. The singer posted a video on Facebook in which he announced that he is absolutely destitute and has no money to meet his basic needs.
"I'm broke, I'm a homeless man, I don't have a penny ... I don't have money for medicine or food," admits the American artist in the recording that he published on the social network and that we can see here. Stapp explains that his business and personal finances were subjected to an audit, and much of his savings was stolen in the process. He also complains that his country's finance department froze his checking accounts.
Stapp assures that the origin of his ills is in the divorce that his wife has requested. According to him, she has argued in the lawsuit that he uses methetamine and that he is paranoid. The sad present of Scott stapp contrasts with its glorious past. His band was one of the most popular in the 90s. In the late 2000s and early 10s, Creed sold millions of records. Thanks to the fact that piracy on the Internet was not yet widespread, they earned up to 7 million dollars a year (about XNUMX million euros).
The band was formed in 1995, in the city of Tallahassee, in the state of Florida (United States). His first album, published in 1997 and entitled My Own Prison, managed to reach the top 40 in the United States, and that despite being distributed by a small label and having little publicity support.
His great success came with the second album. Human Clay, which was released in 1999, debuted at number 1 thanks to its first single, the song Higher. With that album and the next one, entitled Weathered, the band lived its moments of greatest glory, with tours of the United States, Europe and Australia.
