For me, this song goes nowhere.
It's a shame, because I liked the snippet and thought it showed potential. This tune would have deserved a long solo ala Brand New Start. :S

Re: Tremonti playing at the Social TONIGHT!

First impressions. I don't like "All I Was" at all (the vocals made me cringe). "Wish you Well" is alright instrumentally (I wish it had last a couple more minutes), but extremely repetitive lyrically. You can tell Mark is no frontman yet during the technical difficulties. I gues...

Re: Creed V Wishlist

They are always going to have deadlines to work with, especially with the schedule they have going. That's pretty much why IMHO this 2 band situation can't last much longer, or else fans may start noticing the quality of the new output is declining. Someday, they'll have to choose between AB and Cr...

Re: Creed V Wishlist

They had a lot of down time this year, and here we are in early July, and they still haven't recorded anything, or even decided about a record producer. I thought they had learned their lesson since 2009 or 2010 (remember the single that was supposed to come out 2 years ago), but it looks like they ...

Re: Tremonti Project: Previews

Thanks for the video.
This makes me realize this riff had much more potential, had it been correctly produced (I hear a Slayer vibe).

Re: Creed 1998 interview E-Now

Thanks for this. Stapp is right when he says they should not think too much about making their music. I really love the "grit" he had in his voice back then (it's probably never coming back) : he was such a raw and natural talent, it's too bad they didn't record much more when his voice wa...

Thanks.
It's nice to see a good chemistry between the four of them, but the questions were not very good, and the sound was quite bad.

Love them or hate them, you can't deny Muse have massive balls.
You never know what to expect with them, and Matthew Bellamy is an amazing songwriter who never rests on his laurels.

Re: Creed V Wishlist

But as far as the music goes, I'd like Mark to go back to the Drop D a lot in stead of a half step down like he does live now. I know mark is a way better guitar player now than he was back then but I think the simple, rythm type stuff with catchy leads and intros really worked. The low, heavy Cree...

Re: Creed V Wishlist

I've listened to the two Creed demos for the first time in a couple of weeks, and boy oh boy, Stapp needs to work on his delivery. You could never tell he got his old voice back (he often sounds out of breath, and his throat gargle is really off-putting). The whole "Swallow my pride" song ...

Re: Creed V Wishlist

I've listed my wishes many times, but basically, I'd just love them to write an album that is in the same vein as the first three. That means going back to the former guitar settings (drop D), avoiding legato solos uptempo songs, and letting the songs breathe a little. I am not sure they are able to...

They need to write more non-conventional songs like this one.

Re: Creed - Never Die

I agree with Them Bones.
Stapp had such a commanding presence on stage back then. Just by looking at his body language, you could tell he had no doubt about his performance whatsoever. What an awesome frontman he was !

Re: What is your favorite AB album?

Lol the idea of Stapp singing any AB song gives me a headache. I'm not making this up Well “Before the Remains” that was our first record to get back out there [as Alter Bridge], and I think a lot of the songs were on the Creed backburner for a while – there were new songs written but some of them ...

TenaciousBe is right. We should stay in your place, and all these ideas we've thrown out at them should stay what they are : suggestions. But there seems to be more and more fans who are disappointed with AB's direction, and the band should at least take notice of a few suggestions. It doesn't mean ...

Watch your words is one of my favorites..... not trying to start anything here... but I think watch your words is a song that fits Creed perfectly.. Its the last song by Tremonti that I think sounds like the classic creed.. The song could have easily been on My Own Prison or Human Clay.... Good mid...

AB is not metal, but they think they are and are only trying too hard to prove it... Mark should stick to writing good songs and melodies like he used to... Simple or not, Mark had his own unique style of writing which I haven't really heard from him since after one day remains... More musical brea...
