nice, thanks. interesting to see how the recording process was for the album. I feel like though scott, tremonti and kurzweg weren't in the same room at the time of the interview - like it was a put together piece of their own separate phone calls.

Well, that seemed obvious to me.
It seems to me Mark still has zero interest in seeing Stapp yet.

In case you've not seen it in the AB subforum, here's an interview with brian where he talks about Creed's early days and writing songs with Mark.
As usual with him, it's a great read!

there was a point in my journey where I wasn’t with Creed for Weathered (2001). That was a kind of a dark period in my life, I didn’t know what I was going to do. I was living in Orlando and built a studio in my house eventually. I was resentful of Creed for a while. It wasn’t a very pleasant experience because Scott and I really had our differences; the band had to make a choice at that point, and we just parted ways.

Without stepping on anything, as a bass player, I try to do everything I can without overplaying. At the end of the day, I love when there is space in a song, but Mark tends to write at blazing speed. (Laughs) As a bass player, that makes it tough to really take the bass for a walk; you have to stick with what is happening there musically. When there is space I feel like that is where I can venture off in a different partner, but still stick in the same melodic phasing that is happening with the guitars and vocals.

It always seems like it’s so rushed because we’re on a timeline. I really wish I could have more time with the band as a whole to develop the songs. I’ll take the songs away from the writing process and sit down with it, but it’s just not the same. When you’re playing with the band, that’s when things start to gel. Once your comfortable with a song you can start to experiment with it more. That happens for me a lot on tour. The song is recorded one way, but then on tour you say, “Now I’m doing this and I like it so much better than how I recorded it.”

I think that is the beaut of how My Own Prison (1997) was made, we were able to develop that record over 2-3 years. It had time to develop. When I go back to listen to that album I can tell I had time with it. I don’t think I would do anything particularly different on that album.

So basically Brian's parts would have been awesome if he had had more time with them.

Return to “Creed”
