It's also important to note that he's adopted a sort of "never say never" attitude about the band. He may not be rushing back to Creed but he's not ruling out the possibility (at least in interviews when he's asked, which always happens). We can at least take heart that the door is still open.
EDIT: Apparently Scott wished Mark happy birthday and Mark actually responded. It's just small talk, but it's good to know they're at least on general speaking terms.
If Mark doesn't get a passion back for doing Creed there really is no point in having them back. He is the key to Creed ever doing well again imo. His song writing needs inspiration behind it and if he doesn't feel hyped for Creed there can't be good songs. I hope he wants to do Creed again, I think it would be awesome to see them do well in the future.
I think stapp will really have to up his game. Train hard to be a flawless singer as he used to be, get fit physically and bring back the possesed stapp vibe on stage "organically". Mark obviously needs to respect his musical ability from Creed days, not sure what he really thinks about it, but I feel he doesn't care much. But for Creed to come back , stapp and tremonti will have to inspire each other, that's what these boys need to do, most importantly it's for stapp to train hard.
A part of me wants to see them take Creed to the next level considering what kind of musicians they are now. I'd like to see what Mark would come up with if he took the time to write new material. Full Circle had a few great songs but we all know that album was put together in a sloppy rushed out way. I really want to get albums from Creed that are planned, purposely written for and worked on the way the old Creed would of done. Then I have a part of me that gets tired of Scott Stapp and thinks he has ruined Creeds name for good. I go back and forth based on what Mark does musically with his solo material probably because I can taste some new Creed songs when he comes out with such awesome material for the solo band.
I don't know how you fix the way Stapp is viewed so that Creed can be a successful band again. I think time will help but then some sort of something comes up and we go backwards again. I don't know if the guys would want to step under that cloud again when they work so hard with the other bands they have.

It would suck hard if the anniversary comes and we go without getting anything new from Creed. At the same time I do not want Mark to write new Creed songs with the feeling that he has to because it's the anniversary.
