CREED SINGER HAS "LOVE AND RESPECT" FOR GODSMACK'S SULLY ERNA AFTER HE APOLOGIZES
Creed singer Scott Stapp said he has "nothing but love, forgiveness and respect" for Godsmack frontman Sully Erna after Sully issued a "public apology" to the members of Creed for using a derogatory term for a homosexual to describe Scott. Sully made the comments during his speech midway through the final song of Godsmack's set in Uncasville, Connecticut last month.
In his letter of apology, Sully admitted that he had "no excuses whatsoever" for making the "insulting and disrespectful comment" about Scott but explained that there has been a lot of bad blood for many, many years between him and Scott concerning his actions towards a young fan he disrespected and how he has treated people in the past.
He wrote: "I am a 42-year-old dad, with a great career and a much bigger purpose in life than to be stuck in my juvenile past, and wasting my time carrying around useless grudges. I myself have made many mistakes in my life and was no angel, but have been forgiven for those mistakes. So I am here to bury this once and for all."
Scott went on his official Twitter profile to address Sully's apology. He wrote: "Sully, I have nothing but love, forgiveness and respect for you, bro. Keep rocking and I look forward to catching your show with my son Jagger. Rock on."
