On April 18, 1974, Mark Tremonti was born into the world in Detroit, Mich. Years later, the guitar great has carved out his place in rock history, delivering a string of hits with three different rock bands -- Creed, Alter Bridge and his own self-titled band Tremonti. With just shy of 20 years in the music industry, Tremonti has been part of a wealth of great songs, but which one is his best? That's the subject of this Readers Poll.
This is getting to be a regular thing! Congrats to Myles Kennedy for winning the Best Vocalist of 2013 in the 3rd Annual Loudwire Music Awards. This marks his second consecutive win in the category. Last year he won primarily for his work with Slash, while 2013 found Kennedy transitioning back to fronting Alter Bridge.
The lineup for the two-day 2014 Monster Energy's Welcome to Rockville Festival at Metropolitan Park in Jacksonville, Fla., has been announced, and it features an all-star lineup of today biggest rock acts.

Alter Bridge are winding down for the holidays but not before leaving fans with a little video memento to digest from their recent European tour. The group has just issued a new four-and-a-half minute clip that pulls together outtakes from behind the scenes of their Euro trek, showing some of the silliness that goes on when they're not onstage.
Inviting music fans to an intimate look inside the walls of their formidable ‘Fortress,’ Alter Bridge kick off their new disc with the epic tale of ‘Cry of Achilles.’ By design, the track sets the tone for what’s to come: a collection of tracks that push new boundaries for the intrepid melodic rock act. The daring song arrangements experiment just enough to open up a whole new world of audible opportunities all while offering up enough familiarity to not exclude longtime fans. While this is no easy feat, Alter Bridge manage to find the delicate balance of quietly evolving without erasing any of the past.
