I took three 15-year old boys from Lake Pointe Baptist/Rockwall High to see Creed at the Smirnoff.

I was just as excited as they were because their music is excellent.  They have that U2, Pink Floyd, Joe Satriani, and Led Zeppelin sound combined with some head banging. This was one of the kids first "real" concert. My first concert was McCartney and Wings Over America (also age 15).

The sound, stage performance, singing, and media were outstanding. More fireworks, explosions, and fire than I have ever seen.

The entire audience stood, sang, and head banged the whole night. It was if they were possessed by "Legion."

Afterwards, we all enjoyed a little club called "Faces."
