Quote-"I used to have dreams that I would go to Elvis shows, and like he'd call me up outta the crowd, and like evryone would be like 'Oh My God' and I'd run up on the stage with Elvis and sing with him. Like I'd have these reoccuring dreams like that, it was weird, when I was a kid."~Scott Stapp

Quote-"People are confusing that with us being a religious band; we're not. That's just what I was going through at that time. I was asking questions and dealing with issues and going against beliefs that I had been taught my whole life. It's hard for people to understand that because they're so used to being held down by churches and denominations. I wasn't held down; I was born into it. I had no choice, and when I had a choice, I wasn't allowed to have that choice so I left home. My whole life is about having that freedom to have a choice, and not having it forced on me. So that's kind of what we're all about." ~Scott Stapp

And there are kids who don't give a damn about religion and like it because it rocks." ~Scott Stapp

That's how we 'had a cup of coffee.' We got together, and played songs, and wrote songs and jammed together."~Scott Stapp

Quote-"I make a lot of spiritual references. I use a lot of biblical imagery, just because there's a lot of good poetry in the bible and there's a lot a lot of good imagery and use of words and imagination. And growing up, that was something that was in my life because of my family, and I think it just kinda sunk in to how I think and how I write. it just naturally comes out of me that way. I don't think it was really an effort there was no purpose or agenda to make em that way, its just what came out of me."~Scott Stapp


Quote-"I have multiple personalities, my friend."~Scott Stapp

And it's amazing, I can't believe it."~Scott Stapp

So, they'd be like "Scott, ah, stand up on the table and do Jail house Rock,' or something, you know, so I would kinda just do my Elvis impersonations, and then I'd go into all my other impersonations. But, ah, I was a big Elvis fan. I used to have dreams that I would go to Elvis shows, and like he'd call me up outta the crowd, and like everyone would be like 'Oh my God' and I'd run up on the stage with Elvis and sing with him. Like I'd have these reoccurring dreams like that, it was weird, when I was a kid."~Scott Stapp

Do you have a band?' and we'd be like, "Yeah." and they'd come to our shows."~Scott Stapp
