Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

The story of a small-town boy rocketing to fame only to lose it all in a flurry of drugs and alcohol is not a new one, especially in the world of rock ’n’ roll. Kudos then to Stapp, who, with the help of veteran music writer and biographer Ritz, makes his own story a compelling one. The former singer of the once hugely popular rock band Creed, Stapp is a devout Christian who was raised in a fundamentalist home ruled by an abusive stepfather. That background proved to be fertile ground for the creativity and complex relationship with faith that continues to define Stapp as a musician and songwriter to this day. His journey from musician on the rise to rock star spinning out of control is given depth when examined through the lens of his often less-than-perfect faith. Unfortunately, later chapters seem to lack that same close introspection, and readers may feel that Stapp glosses over certain events that could cast him in too critical a light. Nevertheless, those curious to discover what happened to the singer of a once ubiquitous band should be pleased with this offering. --Taina Lagodzinski

From the Back Cover

“The story of my life is profoundly unclear. It is a rock-and-roll story and, at the same time, a story of my walk with Christ. The two are melded together in ways both unpredictable and unsure.”
―Scott Stapp

Sinner’s Creed is the uncensored memoir of Scott Stapp, Grammy Award–winning lead vocalist of the multiplatinum rock band Creed.

Throughout Creed’s decade of dominance, Scott struggled with the demons of his past―the internal battles that spilled over into his lyrics and eventually led him down a dark path of self-destruction and addiction, culminating with the disbanding of Creed in 2004.

In the years that followed the band’s breakup, Scott slipped deeper and deeper into depression and self-medication, behavior that resulted in a near-fatal twenty-foot free fall from a hotel balcony in November of 2006.

Now, clean, sober, and in the midst of a highly successful solo career―Scott has finally come full circle, a turnaround he credits to his renewed relationship with God and to his loving wife, Jaclyn.

In Sinner’s Creed, Scott exposes all his inner demons. The result is not only a gripping memoir but also a rare and candid look at the dark and often turbulent world of rock and roll. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
