Creed was formed in 1994 in Tallahassee, Florida. The band initially consisted of lead vocalist Scott Stapp, guitarist Mark Tremonti, bassist Brian Marshall, and drummer Scott Phillips. Creed quickly rose to massive commercial success with their debut album, “My Own Prison,” released in 1997, followed by “Human Clay” in 1999 and “Weathered” in 2001. These albums spawned numerous hits and propelled the band to international fame. Creed disbanded in 2004 but reunited in 2009 to release “Full Circle” and subsequently went on tour. Over the years, Creed has sold over 28 million records in the United States and has won several awards, including a Grammy Award. The band is known for its post-grunge sound, and despite several hiatuses, they remain a popular act in the rock music scene.

After Creed’s initial breakup, Tremonti formed the band Alter Bridge with fellow Creed members Scott Phillips and Brian Marshall, and vocalist Myles Kennedy.

Brian Marshall

Brian Marshall was the original bassist for Creed, joining at the band’s formation in 1994. He played on the band’s first two albums, “My Own Prison” and “Human Clay,” but left the band in 2000 before the release of “Weathered” due to personal differences and issues within the band. Marshall rejoined Creed for their 2009 reunion and the subsequent album “Full Circle.” Outside of Creed, he is a member of Alter Bridge, where he continues to record and tour, contributing significantly to the band’s rhythm section.
