Scott was born Anthony Scott Flippen. When his mother married Dr. Steven Stapp, and he decided to take his stepfather's last name, he realized his initials would be "ASS". He therefore took his middle name as his first and now goes by Scott Alan Stapp.Desperate to seek freedom from a strict religious life, he snuck out of his home in the dead of night. He went to a friend's house and stayed for a month before returning home. When punished as a child, Scott would be forced to copy the Bible.Later, he tried to impress his dad by attending Lee University in Tennessee. He was caught smoking marijuana and was expelled. Stapp then moved to Tallahassee because Jim Morrison (of "The Doors") had once attended school there.Stapp reconnected ties with his old friend Mark Tremonti jamming on a guitar. In 1995, they formed a band with drummer Scott Phillips and bassist Brian Marshall. Their original name was "Naked Toddler", they however changed it to "Creed" at the suggestion of Brian Marshall.In September 2000 Marshall left the Creed. Creed's highest selling album is Human Clay and is certified diamond by the RIAA. Creed officially folded on June 4, 2004. The other members of the band reunited and formed a new band "Alter Bridge".Stapp cites The Doors, particularly Jim Morrison, as one of his principle musical influences, and performed with the surviving members of the band for a televised concert in 1999. After this, Stapp also performed with the band again on "Stoned Immaculate: The Music of the Doors" tribute album.Stapp now lives in Miami with wife Jaclyn Nesheiwat and is pursuing a solo career. His first album "The Great Divide" was released in 2005. Prior to this, Stapp contributed a song to the "The Passion of the Christ: Songs" album.
