Brother of Mine
After September 11, 2001, the band Virgos - led by Creed's touring bassist Brett Hestla - wrote and recorded a song called Brother of Mine in tribute to the lives sacrificed that day. While it was long said that Scott provided backing vocals to the song, a recording of that version never came to light - until PBF member julio dug it up on Virgos fansite www.virgos.ws
! You can listen to Scott and Brett sharing lead vocals here
, and read the lyrics
to this powerful song.
Also, we at PBF would like to wish everyone a very happy Thanksgiving, filled with family, food, fun, and football! (Go Dallas!) May you all be blessed this holiday season.
