He's actually discussed at length in the book The Wrecking Crew: The Inside Story of Rock and Roll's Best-Kept Secret. The Wrecking Crew was the nickname of the LA studio musicians who played on most of the recorded hits of the '60s (and with good reason; record companies didn't want to risk serious cash on the questionable musicianship and studio habits of unknown teenagers). In the passage on The Grass Roots, the book discusses the conflict between Creed and the record company; He didn't want them to be Dunhill's version of The Monkees. The record company wouldn't budge, and Creed dropped acid before going onstage, then dropped trou onstage at at The Fillmore West and was asked to leave the band.

GREAT book, by the way. It gives you a lot more respect for the studio musicians.

Creed is the best. From his short appearances on the show lately, they must be having trouble with the reanimation of his body. My favorite line is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NaGH6HC-1K4 .
