And as a Creed fan, I understand why people hate them, I hate Stapp too, I just think it's unfair that people bring down the whole band just because Stapp isn't as talented as the rest of his bandmates.
What really stumps me is why they went back to Stapp. Myles Kennedy is a vastly superior singer, guitarist, songwriter, and by all accounts, a better person.
