Scott Stapp, singer for Creed, just announced his first memoir slated for an October 2, 2012 release.

Stapp's memoir, Sinner's Creed, reportedly "unleashes behind the scene realities about his suicide attempts, alcohol-induced rampages and intimate details about his abusive childhood," according to a press release."The book describes my childhood, my internal battle with drugs and depression and how I lost control of my life," says Stapp in the release. "My memoir reveals never before released details about my life and the challenges I've faced before coming to grips and finding sobriety."

Excerpt from the press release:

Sinner's Creed is a riveting, untold story of sex, drugs and rock and roll. Finally, Stapp reveals what it is like to be at the height of controversy due to his fame, faith and addictions and why he has tried to avoid one-on-one interviews until now. The book discloses the true story of a man living on the edge at full tilt. Sinner's Creed is chock-full of page-turning experiences of a rock and roll visionary who was brought down to his knees by the pressures of fame, alcohol and an uncontrollable depression disorder. Through self-discovery and conviction, Scott Stapp was able to rise up again and walk a clean and sober path. In the midst of reconnecting with his fans while on tour, Scott has finally come full circle — a turnaround he credits to his renewed faith in God. Once a sinner, always a sinner, but what was once broken, has the power to heal.

It sounds like the first few chapters of the book would be interesting. After that, not so much.
