5/5 Paper Movement Stars
This story by the front man of Creed is gripping.
More than being exposing to the train wreck of a life that being a rock star lends itself to being, Scott’s story of a legalistic, respected, yet abusive “Christian” father is what shook me the most.
I won’t go into details, but Scott’s childhood was absolutely horrific. Some parts were hard to listen to. Basically, it’s a story of all law and no grace. Scott’s life has been an incredibly hard journey.
In our world today we seem to enjoy watching celebrities’ lives fall apart in front of us. This book gives some great glimpses into their lives behind the spotlight, and may very well leave you feeling extremely grateful for your ordinary life.
The narrator does a fantastic job. As should be the case, it seems as though the author is speaking.
I’d highly recommend this book to all Creed fans, as Scott explains the story behind numerous songs as well as the band life. ln fact, it’s a great listen for a raw, honest look into the celebrity world.
I’ll confess that Scott most likely isn’t the Christian role-model you’d point your children to. In fact, you’ll probably question his authenticity-whether he truly is born again. His story is one of an ongoing battle with dark sin to this day. That can be hard for a church kid (with his own set of ‘problems’) to reconcile.
Heavily, horrifically honest book. It’s an autobiography, not a sermon. Thanks Scott. You’re not perfect, but you’re a great inspiration.
