Our heartless world is now creedless, too: Creed has broken up. This means the world is condemned to suffer an eternity without that angst-ridden, post-grunge Florida rock group, which sold more than 24 million albums in its 10 years of existence. According to MTV.com, guitarist Mark Tremonti and singer Scott Stapp weren't seeing eye-to-eye, so the band took a year off. But problems remained when they tried to regroup. The creative spark was gone. Stapp plans to go solo. But Tremonti, bassist Brian Marshall, and drummer Scott Phillips said they would form their own band, which, Phillips insists, is not "just Creed with a different singer.

Hip-hop, smiley teen stars and belligerent rap-metal may rule the pop charts, but don't think there's still not a sizable audience famished for new-school classic rock. Just how hungry are reared-on-Led-Zeppelin rock fans for a long-haired hero who bellows with all the emotionality he can muster? So hungry that a band as miserably mediocre as Creed could all but sell out the E-Centre in Camden on Friday and Saturday. It's the triumph of the generic. Creed's thundering anthems bear traces of Hootie and the Blowfish's pseudo-soul, Live's confused philosophizing, U2's messianic idealism and Jim Morrison's poetic pomposity.

Somewhere in the middle of Creed's set Monday at the First Union Center, lead singer Scott Stapp took a moment to share what his rock band has learned about live performance. "We realize it's not just us," he said, gesturing to the trio behind him. "It's all of us, together. Sharing energy. Giving back to each other. " By that point, it was abundantly clear what Creed - reigning kings of arena rock, if only by default - got from the loud capacity crowd: unquestioning devotion.

Last Sunday's Oscar results provoked much weeping and lamentation among Philadelphians with an overdeveloped attachment to Sylvester Stallone. Moviegoers from this region may have heavily favored the old warhorse, but Academy members did not. Sly fans can take comfort in the fact that the Academy Awards really don't have much to do with anything real people care about - Stallone is apparently unpopular in Hollywood circles - and that the victor, veteran...

"I think the greatest asset to this band," says Creed lead singer Scott Stapp, "is that about as far ahead as we ever think is the next day. We're kind of all-inclusive in our own little world, and we just do our own thing. Whatever happens today is cool, and then there's tomorrow. " Which is how the Florida quartet, playing a sold-out show tomorrow at the Spectrum, kept the pressure off while making Human Clay (Wind-up). Two years ago, Creed recorded 10 songs - the group couldn't afford 11 - for $6,000 in a home studio.

Dan Gorman thinks places are like people: A street corner pulsates, a freight train line lumbers, a dark, dank rowhouse aches. It's a view of the inanimate world that enlivens the big screen. Gorman is a locations scout whose reconnaissance work shaped not only the acclaimed Creed , up for a 2016 best supporting actor Oscar, but three other films with Academy Award nominations or wins that were shot in the region in recent years: Foxcatcher, Silver Linings Playbook, and The Lovely Bones.

Notorious crash-and-burn tours include some of these "what-were-they-thinking" combination of musical acts: DAVID LEE ROTH - SAMMY HAGAR In 2002, when both Roth and Hagar were feuding with Eddie Van Halen, the two former Van Halen band lead singers hit the road together. While the two were happy to make money as a team, they didn't bother to speak to one another - onstage or off. Diamond Dave took to telling a few jokes at Hagar's expense each night. SMASHING PUMPKINS - PAVEMENT In 1994, Pavement leader Stephen Malkmus took a swipe at the Smashing Pumpkins in the song "Range Life.

I have lived for more than a half-century in the Swedeland community of Upper Merion Township, and have visited Valley Forge National Historical Park and Independence National Historical Park many times. Never do I recall Valley Forge being used mostly for recreational purposes. Valley Forge is a national shrine, and likewise Independence Park, for all Americans, regardless of race, color, creed, age and political affiliation, and for people from all countries to enjoy. They should not have to pay a fee. A fee was paid in 1777-78 by George Washington and his troops - for eternity and for everyone - through starvation, nakedness, cold, disease and uncertainty.

"Creed" starĀ  Sylvester Stallone 's Oscar nomination odds got a bit shorter this week when he picked up support from a prominent critics group. On Sunday, he received a Critics Choice Best Supporting Actor nod, voted upon by the Broadcast Critics Association. Stallone has already received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Supporting Actor. Meanwhile, "Creed" keeps rolling along at the box office, bringing in another $10 million, dropping a slight 30 percent, and marching to $79 million on its way, perhaps, to $100 million.

#OscarsSoPhilly, anyone? The controversy over the lack of diversity in the Academy Awards nominations - and in the movie biz in general - continues to dominate Oscar discussions. But there's something folks in Philadelphia can gab about, and embrace with pride, as the golden figurines are handed out Sunday night on Hollywood's Dolby Theatre stage: Sylvester Stallone, the guy who planted that underdog pugilist Rocky Balboa deep in the Philly psyche, is just about a sure thing to win the supporting actor Oscar for his performance in the otherwise criminally ignored Creed , playing an aging South Philadelphia restaurateur who returns to the boxing world to train the son of Rock's onetime rival.

C reed is my second-favorite Rocky movie so far, the original being my all-time favorite. In fairness, I've said that about every Rocky sequel or spin-off. I loved them all - except for Rocky IV . That one was so over-the-top red, white, and blue ridiculous from the moment Apollo Creed is beaten to death in a U.S.-U.S.S.R. "exhibition" bout by the remorseless inhumanoid Soviet champion, Ivan Drago, half man, half Dolph Lundgren. The 1985 sequel ends in a Moscow sports arena filled with Rocky-chanting Russkies after the "smaller, weaker" American boxer beat the Iron Curtain out of the suddenly human Soviet champ.

THE MOTHER in me is worried stupid about Paul Kroll. I want him to quit boxing because, at 20, his whole life is ahead of him. I don't want him to jeopardize it with blows suffered in the ring. I mean, have you seen Concussion ? But the long-ago boxing fan in me is like, "GO, PAUL! MAKE US PROUD!" What can I say? I was once so enamored of the beauty, bravery, and athleticism of the sweet science that I spent hours, solo, attending bouts at the elegantly decayed Blue Horizon boxing hall.

YO, MEMBERS of the Academy of Motion Pictures, this is some bull----. Excuse my profanity, but how is it that not a single actor of color was nominated for an Academy Award this year? Not one. It's infuriating. Dudes, this is the second whiteout year in a row. Today, on the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday, I'm appalled at how little progress has been made in this area. It's not as if you didn't have some really outstanding choices. You guys - Oscar voters, who are overwhelmingly white, male, and over 60 - ignored some really outstanding performances.

It would have been so easy to make Creed a mockery of Rocky , his home city, and American urban life in 2015, warts and all. Imagine the possibilities from the fairy tale peddlers of no-plastic-surgery-is-too-much-plastic-surgery Hollywood: a 21st-century franchise reboot of a lucrative 1970s working-class-hero classic in which Adonis Johnson, fabulously wealthy son of onetime world boxing champ Apollo Creed, flies first class to ...
