Creed From ‘The Office’ Shares Stories From Touring With Beach Boys, The Doors
Tonight at the City Winery, Creed Bratton will appear with his mix of comedy and music.
After spending the morning with him in our studio, it’s apparent that the performance will be a mix of accomplished musician from the 1960’s who toured with The Beach Boys and The Doors, and the Creed, the character he portrayed on The Office. So, pretty much a win/win for any pop culture junkie.

Here’s a shorthand recap of the interview: He busked in Europe in 64/65 and it was to make ends meat. Kate Flannery, horrible person (lol). Creed was a mysterious character, apparently he killed people but NBC just glossed over it. Steve Carrell is a comedy genius, and a real sphincter pucker. The Office Bloopers are just as funny as the actual show, and you are the main reason for a bunch of people cracking up. James Spader very smart cat, he has a photographic memory. *Hits Flannery Switch*. Playing with The Grass Roots. John Denzmore best man in Creed’s wedding. Toured with The Doors and the Beach Boys. Creed is friendly with Mt. Joy. Learned to read music with trumpet and a little with piano but guitar is all hearing. Living in Laurel Canyon in the 60s you’d smell the jasmine, and hear different songs throughout the canyon, and drugs. You are going to be turning 81? You don’t look anywhere near that. Ginseng suppositories. When he was in the Grass Roots it was all music. After that he studied the Meisner Method of acting. Know your lines but not the other person’s but you react off their lines with your emotion but the lines you know. Did a Call of Duty a few years ago. Started fishing at a young age, with bass, caught a 160lb tarpon back in May. Creed is picking up the guitar, sings the Ginseng Suppositories Theme.
