Scott Stapp announces solo tour, no Creed reunion yet…

Scott Stapp revealed the big announcement today that he’s going on tour for his solo career but not with Creed. He’ll be touring in some states in the US and he’s got a few dates booked in Africa.

Welp, he’s got to start making money again somehow since he’s been pretty broke for a long while. Now he’s getting better with himself, he’s getting back on the road again with his music. I think he’s about ready to release a new solo album too ’cause he just recorded one, I believe. During his solo tour, I’m sure he’ll play all the well-known CREED hits as well. Of course, he’s going to play all the Creed along with his own material. If he wasn’t gonna play Creed songs then people wouldn’t be interested in his tour. That’s why you hear Creed songs in the promotional video above giving you a hint that he will play Creed songs on tour.

I’m a big fan of Creed. I’ve heard all of their albums and saw them in concert twice in the past. I’ve always loved the band. Of course, their album, “My Own Prison” will always be the best record, in my opinion. While there is no CREED reunion yet, maybe Scott will invite Mark Tremonti to play guitar on a few Creed songs on his tour? That could probably happen.

While Creed has got a lot of critics and haters now ’cause of their mainstream status in the past, I still love the band today. I’m glad Scott is getting better and improving his life so I hope he stays this way.

Rocky Balboa returns to the big screen, “Creed” trailer is here!!!

People thought Rocky Balboa would never return to the big screen again but he did. Sylvester Stallone reprises his Rocky role for one more time. Is this the final time that Sly is gonna play Rocky? I predict, yes. I think there’s a possibility that Rocky might get killed off in this one… maybe die of a heart attack and Rocky will have an emotional death scene in the film maybe?

Anyway, this movie looks really great! I’ll probably be in the theater for this one since I’m a big Rocky fan.

Sly’s instagram page is pretty good stuff…

I never realized Sly Stallone had his own instagram page. Check it out here:

https://instagram.com/officialslystallone/

As you can see, Sly’s got a bunch of videos on there that he probably took from his mobile phone or something. You’d be surprised to see that Sly is just a normal guy just like the rest of us. He’s got a lot of stuff in Philly while filming the movie, “Creed”. As I expected, he seems pretty happy to be back there and he even had a video about moving back there, I’m sure he was just joking of course.

Sylvester Stallone breaks up heated fight on the set of “Creed” and of course, successful in stopping it…

A huge fight broke out between actor/pro boxer Tony Bellew who plays the character, Pretty Ricky and another actor — when things got really heated, Sly of course had to jump in. A source said that Sly started screaming and ordering it to stop. Of course, they did.

More on the story here:

So Sly the peacemaker. No surprise there. That’s what you get when you have a real life pro boxer on a movie set, you’ll have to deal with a lot of egos. They were quick at stopping the fight when Sly jumped in ’cause why? Well, he’s Sylvester Stallone for one. A legend. Plus, Sly is a huge guy, muscular and ripped. I’m sure the two guys shut their mouths real fast when Sly showed up. You don’t mess with Sly.

Something tells me Sly have done this before on movie sets… stopping fights so this is nothing new with him, I’m sure.

That Rocky spin-off, “Creed” release it’s synopsis…

Check it out, that Rocky spin-off film, “Creed” just released it’s synopsis, it’s here:

Adonis Johnson (Jordan) never knew his famous father, world heavyweight champion Apollo Creed, who died before he was born. Still, there’s no denying that boxing is in his blood, so Adonis heads to Philadelphia, the site of Apollo Creed’s legendary match with a tough upstart named Rocky Balboa.

Once in the City of Brotherly Love, Adonis tracks Rocky (Stallone) down and asks him to be his trainer. Despite his insistence that he is out of the fight game for good, Rocky sees in Adonis the strength and determination he had known in Apollo—the fierce rival who became his closest friend. Agreeing to take him on, Rocky trains the young fighter, even as the former champ is battling an opponent more deadly than any he faced in the ring.

With Rocky in his corner, it isn’t long before Adonis gets his own shot at the title…but can he develop not only the drive but also the heart of a true fighter, in time to get into the ring?

Is Rocky gonna get killed off in this one? I believe this is the final time that Sly is gonna be playing the legendary character we all love. While it maybe sad that Rocky could get killed off, it would make a very dramatic and powerful scene. I can see Sly pulling off some really good acting chops during Rocky’s death.

I remember nobody wanted Mickey, Apollo and Adrian to die but those deaths made the movies more intense. Well, in the film “Rocky Balboa” never showed Adrian’s death which made it even more interesting. The previous Rocky film, “Rocky Balboa” (Rocky VI) got mixed reviews but I still thought it was a great Rocky film… I just wish Sly didn’t direct it and he should have brought John G. Avildsen back at the helm.

I’m looking forward to the film “Creed” but keep in mind, Rocky being a trainer/mentor of somebody is nothing new ’cause that’s what Rocky did in “Rocky V”. Rocky was Tommy Gunn’s manager. “Rocky V” didn’t get great reviews either but I still liked the film for what it is.

I’m sure in the film “Creed” Sly will still kill it as Rocky. Even though this is a spin-off, technically this is Rocky 7… kind of funny ’cause Sly said he would never play Rocky again after “Rocky Balboa”. Wonder what made him change his mind?

Sly Stallone meets fans at top of steps of Philadelphia Art Museum…

Sylvester Stallone is back in Philadelphia to film the Rocky spin-off film, “Creed”. While there, I’m sure Sly couldn’t help himself but look back and re-visit all the old filming locations for all the past “Rocky” films. A group of tourists went to the Philly Art Museum where Rocky did his famous training scenes by running up the steps. The group of tourists ran up the steps just like in the Rocky films and at the top of the steps, Sly the man himself happened to be there. The group of tourists and Sly decided to hang out for a little bit and take photos as you see above.

Oh man, those guys are lucky! I wish I could get my chance to meet Sly in person! As you can see, Sly is great with his fans and his supporters.

It had to be pretty emotional for Sly to re-visit his old Rocky film locations. I wonder if he went to visit Micky’s old gym. I’m sure he did. I also wondered if Sly re-visited Rocky’s apartment (remember, it was a shit hole). Not sure if Rocky’s old apartment is still there or not. We might even see these locations again in the “Creed” film including the Art Museum.

Is Sly writing a Rocky 7? Or is he helping out with the writing of “Creed”???

Sly Stallone just posted a cryptic photo on twitter of his desk in his home office. He showed where he does the writing of his scripts. Sly doesn’t use a computer for writing scripts? Ha! I’m sure he uses a computer, though.

If you look closely at the script, you can see that Rocky has some dialogue on it. Is that a script for “Rocky 7” or the Creed spin-off film??? Probably the Creed spin-off film, I would think and Sly is helping out with the writing.

Sly also confirms two more films on twitter:

He confirms he’s doing one last Rambo film after “Creed” and then he’s gonna do a film about mobster, Gregory Scarpa.

I’m glad Sly finally confirmed one last Rambo film and I’m sure it’s gonna be badass. I did like the Rambo film that was released in 2008 but it needed to be longer. I’m sure the next film will be longer and even more violent than the last one. I’m sure Sly will grow out his long hair again for the Rambo role. Will Sly direct the last Rambo film himself, though? Honestly, I hope not ’cause while I’m a huge fan of Sly, I don’t think he’s the greatest director in the world, though. He should get someone else to direct the final Rambo film if he wants it to be great.

Here’s what I think is gonna happen to Rambo in the final film. SPOILER ALERT: Rambo dies. Ha!

Yeah, Sly said before that he would be willing to kill Rambo off in order to end the series. Rambo was originally supposed to die in the first one but of course, they had to change the script so Rambo can live for the sequels.

I’m still a huge fan of Sly though and look forward to every new movie he comes out with.
