In my digging, whether vinyl or cd, I like to find things I hadn’t seen before and this was one of those items. It was a Limited Edition CD Single from Creed for their song “With Arms Wide Open”. The release was to help promote and fund the With Arms Wide Open Foundation that was started by the band. $3 from the sale of each single went to the Foundation.
The CD has 3 separate versions of the song. It has the Strings Version, the Acoustic Version and the Rock Version. There is also a video of the song as well. So if you like the song, you get a nice variety of versions for the song and that usually makes every collector happy. I will be honest, vocally each version of this song is feel exactly the same. The only difference is they layered in strings for the String Version and acoustic guitars for the Acoustic Version. The Rock Version has all instruments at full force but is around seconds shorter.
What I loved about the CD single is the fact it was transparent. Yes, you get a picture disc as well with the crossed hands of the father and child, but you can see right through the disc. I don’t think I’ve seen one like that before so I had to grab it. And I do like Scott Stapp so there was that as well.
Okay, it is time to finally celebrate Creed with a collection of memes…well…maybe not celebrate so much as attack, poke fun, ridicule or anything else that might be a little negative. Come on, you know you want to. I wanted to pick ones that celebrated Creed, but honestly, there are none…really!! Come on…they weren’t that bad. So sit back and enjoy this collection of memes that are about Scott Stapp and Creed.
I hear he is out of a job again…Art of Anarchy is now suing him…
Are you saying they suck??
They are always lumped with Nickelback as the worst…
Okay, this one is a little true…
Some people just aren’t smart…
Was it really that bad????
And yes, this is definitely the truth!!! Preach it bear!!!
Oh yeah…I forgot he did this…
Before I get lots a crap for bashing them, it is all in fun. Plus, I truly couldn’t find any that celebrated the band.
Welcome to the Top 20 Rock Songs of 2016. These songs are my favorite songs of the year and were not necessarily played on the radio or even shot up the charts. They just moved me in some way good or bad!
20. “Parasite (feat. John 5)” by Ace Frehley off the album ‘Origins, Vol. 1’: I wouldn’t pick a covers song for this list if this one wasn’t so damn good. John 5 on guitar is amazing and since this is an old Kiss song it is perfect for Ace. I think it sounds better than the original.
19. “Raise Hell” by Dorothy off the album ‘RockisDead’: This bluesy gem from Dorothy has such a great sound and Dorothy’s vocals are perfect for this style. I expect big things from this band!
It is Friday again and not a moment too soon. Today’s new releases are just what this metal head has been waiting for and I have a feeling these will be on heavy rotation over the next week.
Sixx A.M. – Prayers for the Damned (Eleven Seven Music)
When Nikki Sixx put together Sixx A.M. for the Heroin Diaries, I thought it was going to be a one-off project. Gladly that was not the case. This album is their fourth one and since all three previous albums have been exceptional, I am hoping that streak continues.
