Drummer Scott Phillips doesn't seem to shed a tear over his former band, Creed, being finished now that he and Creed guitarist Mark Tremonti, ousted Creed bassist Brian Marshall, and ex-Mayfield Four frontman Myles Kennedy are starting anew as Alter Bridge. He relishes the new democratic songwriting process and even wishes well to former lead singer Scott Stapp. But don't assume that Phillips and crew are out to relive their Creed glory. "We're not going to come in there and do two new songs and a do a bunch of Creed stuff," Phillips says. "It's not fair to the fans who are used to Creed, which Scott was a big part of, to watch somebody else do the songs. The same goes with Scott if he goes out and does Creed songs with a different band." So out with the old and in with the new.
