Scott Stapp: Chris Cornell is the Greatest Pure Rock Singer – Podcast Preview
In this episode of the Loudwire Podcast, our main topics with Scott Stapp will be Art of Anarchy’s new album, The Madness, and Stapp’s remarkable recovery over the last couple of years. The former Creed frontman has seemingly bounced back from his bipolar and drug-induced episodes, now attending meetings five days a week and putting his energy back into his family and music.
In this upcoming podcast’s edition of ‘Rocker vs. Writer,’ we debate the greatest pure rock singer with Stapp. As a huge fan of Led Zeppelin, we assumed Stapp would choose Robert Plant, but Scott went with a modern legend.
“He can do so many different things to evoke emotion,” Stapp raved. “From the soulfulness, to the top end of his range when he gets metal and aggressive, to his choice of melodies and how the melody in itself, despite what he’s saying, can incite emotion. I think he’ll go down in history as one of the greats.”
