Artist Countdown: Creed Top 25 Hits

creedCreed is an American rock band, formed in 1993 in Tallahassee, Florida. The band’s best-known line-up consists of lead vocalist Scott Stapp, guitarist and vocalist Mark Tremonti, bassist Brian Marshall, and drummer Scott Phillips. Creed released two studio albums, My Own Prison in 1997 and Human Clay in 1999, before Marshall left the band in 2000 to be replaced by touring bassist Brett Hestla. The band’s third record, Weathered, was released in 2001 with Mark Tremonti handling bass before the band disbanded in 2004 due to increasing tension between members. Tremonti, Marshall, and Phillips went on to found Alter Bridge while Stapp followed a solo career, releasing The Great Divide in 2005. After years of speculation, Creed reunited in 2009 for a tour and new album called Full Circle.

In early 2012 the band reconvened again to tour and start work on a fifth album. However, the album has since been shelved, with Stapp saying the future of the band is unclear due to a disagreement between himself and Tremonti. However, in interviews Stapp has maintained that the band is still together, just focusing on other projects. He’s also said that he’s always open to continuing work on a new album when the time is right.

Becoming popular in the late 1990s and early 2000s, the band released three consecutive multi-platinum albums, one of which has been certified diamond. Creed has sold over 28 million records in the United States, and over 40 million albums worldwide,becoming the ninth best-selling artist of the 2000s. Creed is often recognized as one of the prominent acts of the post-grunge movement of the late 1990s and early 2000s.  РWikipedia

Artist Countdown: Alter Bridge Top 20 Tracks 6pm ET

alterbridgeAlter Bridge is an American rock band that was formed in 2004 in Orlando, Florida. It consists of lead guitarist and backing vocalist Mark Tremonti, bassist Brian Marshall, and drummer Scott Phillips, all of whom are also members of Creed, alongside lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist Myles Kennedy, formerly of The Mayfield Four and the frontman of Slash’s current solo project. Tremonti named the group after an actual bridge that once existed on Alter Road near his former home in Grosse Pointe Park, Michigan.

Despite Creed’s multi-platinum success, Alter Bridge arose with only gold status with their first studio album, One Day Remains, which was released on Wind-up Records in August 2004 to generally mixed reviews. After the band’s first tour, they dropped their contract with Wind-up Records in 2006 and signed with Universal Republic Records, releasing their second album, Blackbird, which was positively received by critics, in October 2007. The band spent the next two years touring and working on other projects before reconvening in 2010 to work on their third album. Titled AB III, the album was released in October 2010 on Roadrunner Records and was a critical success. In January 2011, the band’s first live album and concert film, Live from Amsterdam, was finally released in stores after two years of delays. A second concert film, Live at Wembley, was released in March 2012. Since January 2013 the band has been recording their fourth studio album, expected to be released the same year.

Despite relatively low mainstream success and label support for the majority of the band’s career, Alter Bridge’s music has been critically successful, and the band has become known for its frequent, extensive touring and loyal fanbase. The individual members of Alter Bridge are also involved with various other projects, including solo and session work, Creed, and Kennedy’s collaborations with Slash and former members of Led Zeppelin. In 2009, Ultimate Guitar Archive named Alter Bridge the 36th greatest band of the decade. -Wikipedia
