Scott Stapp: The Ouija Interview

Categories: Ouija Interview

1995 was a busy year. In January, the Great Hansin Earthquake killed 6,500 people in Kobe, Japan. In February, a fire in a Taiwanese karaoke bar killed 64, the deadliest in the nation's history. And in July, sealing the deal on the most culturally devastating year of the decade, Scott Stapp founded his concretely profitable, vaguely spiritual rock band Creed.

Bringing mule-faced piety to bold new frontiers, Stapp is credited with the invention of assuming a crucifix pose atop the Seattle Space Needle, a daredevil stunt that netted him a 2002 appearance on Spike TV's coveted Casino Cinema. As inviting as bathwater at room temp, Creed's ten year career abruptly ended in 2007, terminated, we're pretty sure, by Stapp's death.

But Gimme Noise is hardly opposed to crossing the River Styx when there's good material afoot. Judging by his unsual stoicism, we can only assume that we caught the Holy Ghost at an untalkative moment. Nonetheless, Gimme Noise proudly presents Scott Stapp: The Ouija Interview.
