In the 90s and early 2000s, the rock band Creed was wildly popular. They released three consecutive multi-platinum albums and sold over 28 million records in the US and over 53 million albums worldwide. They were one of the best-selling bands of their era. Creed’s frontman Stapp was listed in the top 100 greatest heavy metal vocalists of all time. But in 2013 Stapp fell on hard times. He claimed that his enemies were trying to discredit him and slander him.
His Wife Saved His Life
Stapp admitted, “There’s been a couple weeks where I had to sleep in my truck. I had no money, not even for gas or food. … I went two days without eating, ’cause I had no money, and ended up in an emergency room.” He asked his fans for money. In the end, it was his wife Jaclyn that got him into rehab. He started working out and going to AA. Stapp told GQ that his wife acts as his chaperone now and helps him keep his affairs in order. While his net worth is still quite small, he has his family and his solo career so he feels like a wealthy man.
