Scott Stapp was in town on Sunday night as part of Rock 105’s 20th birthday bash and there were three other bands playing on this night as well. They included Mighty Side Show, Spirit Animal and Theory of a Deadman, with the latter being one of the top bands in rock, but this night belonged to Scott Stapp.

Scott’s band, comprised of Dango Cellan, Sammy Hudson, Yannis Papadopoulos and Ben Flanders, is a collection of top-notch musicians that can hold their own with any band out there.

Scott once again proved to everyone in attendance why is one of the greatest rock artists of all time. His onstage presence, charisma, and how he is able to connect with an audience is something to behold.

Scott has always had a powerful voice, but it sounds better now than ever, as he is able to hit every note and high spot with no difficulty. He is at the top of his game.

Scott continually had the audience screaming and cheering and on “With Arms Wide Open” and “My Sacrifice” he had the audience sing parts of the songs and it seemed to give him even more energy.

Scott spoke several times between songs, and even though he is a true superstar, Scott is a humble, caring man that has his priorities in order, with his family being at the top of the list.

His new album, “The Space Between the Shadows”, is an amazing album that hits on a host of emotions, but the message this album brings is that even though you have been hurt, abandoned, suffered loss, feel hopeless, there is hope and that you can be a survivor.

In closing, Scott brought the house down last night, but in doing so he inspired through his music, through his life story, and he inspires others daily.

If you get the chance to see Scott and his band perform live, do it, you will not be disappointed.

Yes, he is a rock star, a legend, but what he does through life in music and outside of music makes Scott, simply the best.

On this, the first day of a new month, I pause during my monthly trip to the garden as I mourn for my country.

By this I mean we were helpless to the virus – there was no way to stop it and therefore we must endure. Criminal rioting is altogether different. ... (click for more)
