I lost some respect for Mark when Creed reformed because he openly stated that he'd never go back to Creed. I can't see the issue being about money because he's very well-off from the previous stint with Creed, I think what it really boiled down to was that he missed playing huge crowds. Let's be honest, Alter Bridge never got out of the seedy bars really, I've seen them live three times and they never left the same crappy venues. Creed, on the other hand, is a guaranteed headliner at an arena. So I can't fault him for that because I'm a musician myself and when you haven't played a big show in a while, it can really gnaw away at you. Eh, that's just my two cents on it.
