Scott Stapp – ‘Proof of Life’ (2013) – Album Review

Scott Stapp.  Where do you begin?  The Creed frontman has been ridiculed and the talk of much gossip with his numerous personal issues.  He seems to be one of those artists that people love to hate.  I don’t get it.  I will go ahead and say this upfront.  I think he is an awesome singer and a great frontman.  I like Creed!!  I like Scott Stapp!! I like Art of Anarchy!!  I like everything he has done…okay, maybe not everything…but heckuva lot of it.

Scott’s personal demons are well documented…his drinking problems, many addictions and his battle with bipolar disorder.  He has attempted suicide, been in and out of rehab and so many other things that nobody wants to have happen to them.  At the time of this album, he seemed to be doing really well.  But shortly after, he came crashing down again.

‘Proof of Life’ is Scott’s 2nd solo album and is probably his most personal and honest record he has ever done.  It takes you on a stroll through all his struggles and how he somehow is able to get back up and fight back.  There are many Christian overtones in the music, but it is not a Christian album.  It is a mainstream, hard rock album…no doubt.  It is probably the best thing he has ever done.  Yes, I said it…The BEST thing he has ever done!!!

My Sunday Song – “Only One” by Scott Stapp

For My Sunday Song #9, I have gone back a few years and chosen my favorite song by Scott Stapp.  Yes, the Creed frontman himself.  His last album ‘Proof of Life’ was one of the best albums in 2013 and this song still speaks to me today.

My interpretation of the song is that the song is about God and how He will always be there for you no matter what you are going through.  And that is a great feeling when you know that is the case.

The song is also special to me because when I hear it, I think about my 2 beautiful daughters.  I want them to know that not only is God always there for them, but I am there for them as well no matter what they are going through.  I will always believe in them and be supportive in everything they do…even if I don’t agree with their decisions.
