A friend and I came up up with the complex that all "hardcore/nu-metal/rap rock" bands were really mutated hairs bands. Ratt = Korn.

Anyone else notice how incredibly boring this period of mainstream rock has gotten? I guess the excitement is waiting to see who will be the next big thing.

Anyways.

I don't like Creed, I think they're pretty boring. It is however, very unfortunate that the singer was in a car accident. There has been too many rock related deaths as of late, and of course the car accident that took the life of Lisa Lopez comes to mind when you think about Scott Stapps accident.

Are you kidding? If this happened to one or all of U2, we'd all be signing an online get-well petition and mailing it to them!

My biggest fear, bigger than Bono being killed in an auto accident or going down in a plane, is the possibility of him being kidnapped by terrorists and held for ransom, or assassinated because of his political endeavours, or because of the mental compacity of a pyscho fan.

I went thru this in one of the other "Creed sucks" threads a couple of months ago, comparing the rise and inevitable fall of Creed to that of Poison...the similarities are astounding.

Creed is the greatest band of all time and Scott Stapp is a far better singer than Bono.

I didn't want this to be a Creed thread (although I know how much Sicy loves Creed threads in this forum! ). My goal was to use Creed as an example in the event something like this happened to U2.

For example, what if what happened to Stapp happened to Bono? At first, there would probably be 1000 threads and even more posts wishing Bono well and how we all hope he recovers quickly.

But then, I'm sure when people started to read things like, "there were no injuries" and how Bono was "just shaken up" we might start to wonder. Suddenly, amidst those "get well" threads, there might be a few "uh, why is the tour cancelled if Bono is O.K.?" type of comments.

No doubt those brave souls who asked that question would get beaten at first by the faithful. But it is a valid question. If there were "no injuries" and Bono was just "shaken up" (as is to be expected in even a fender-bender type of accident), would it really be necessary to cancel a leg of the tour - and offer no make-up dates?

In other words, if, God forbid, something like this happened to Bono/U2, I know I'd like a LOT more information that what Creed is revealing. Something just sounds terribly suspicious about them cancelling the tour. Bono's wife gave birth and Bono's father passed away during the last tour - yet the tour continued. Those two events alone are more than enough reason to cancel at least a few dates - but U2 carried on. When Bono's voice is raw and hoarse, U2 carry on. When Adam went on a bender due to his break-up with Naomi, U2 carried on. When Edge went through a divorce, U2 carried on. When Larry's back was killing him, U2 carried on. And let's not forget the fact that Bono was also dedicating ocean's of time to the Drop the Debt campaign while touring - yet U2 carried on.

Clearly, this is very impressive, which is why I think U2's tickets are worth every cent (another thread). But I can't help but wonder what's *really* up with Stapp and what Bono/U2 would do if something similar happened.

What do Creed and Stapp's reasons for canceling their tour have to do with U2?

Some people question Bono's over-dedication to Elevation. Was U2's continuing on during all of those instances from Adam's to Edge's troubles exemplary and deserving of respect? Some people might say no. We don't know the full story do we, so its hard to comment. Same with Creed.

doctorwho, your most recent post seems like the building up of one band in order to subtly bash another band. Am I wrong in that assumption?

Heck, why is this Creed related post even on this forum? I remember Heathen Chemistry/ Oasis threads being moved and they even had some U2 content.

*beats Flying Manchu



I can see how this could be seen as a Creed thread - after all, I did mention Creed's tour. And I'll acquiesce that it may seem like I'm insulting Creed and praising U2 by asking the questions I am, but to be very honest, that was not my goal. Rather, I wanted to really know what's going on. What if Bono did this?

Hypothesize U2 cancelling their tour last year citing Bono's accident - where ALL reports indicate that he was unhurt - as the reason. Would we accept it? As I wrote above, I'm sure that at first there would be a 10001 posts wishing Bono and U2 well. But then there'd be a few brave souls who'd question if U2 really had to cancel. Most certainly, those questioning people would be taunted mercilessly by the U2 faithful. But in truth, they would have asked a very valid question. That is, if U2 had cancelled their tour for an apparently "minor" accident, would we accept it? If this was U2 instead of Creed, how would you react?

That is my ultimate U2 question and that is what I was hoping to get from this thread. Also, if others happened to supply more information about Creed/Stapp along the way - to better elaborate upon the situation - that was certainly acceptable. It's not that I'm a Creed fan (and if I was, I wouldn't be posting this question in this forum), but rather, additional information may help me understand how and why ANY band, Creed, U2 or whomever, could do this.

I hope they broke up due to the fact they sucked balls and that this will be the start of a way overdue trend.

Creed is nothing more than a Pearl Jam wannabe. They will go away soon enough. They showed promise with their first album but everything since then lacks and vision. Boring and bland, just like The Calling, Default, etc...

Well I like them, Creed, and was going to see them live. I don't like them so much that I spend hours at their website, I've never been to a Creed website. I don't have any of their shirts and I only have 2 of their cds.

Their first one was great, and came out when Bizkit and Ko*n ruled the airwaves, so I had to have something new to listen to. And after all, U2's last effort had been PoP-which I'm not knocking but it was lacking and left me disoriented.

So I like Creed enough to go see them and I want to compare them to the 4 U2 shows I seen last year.

I don't care when you all bash Creed, I just hope you don't wish Stapp harm and such.

Also Shaun Vox, I hope this answers your question about what type of person would listen to crap music like this.

Btw, I am really liking Incubus currently. I may go buy their latest cd. Anyone have/recommend it?

Thanx
