Wolfgang Van Halen
Mark Tremonti raised a few eyebrows in the Van Halen camp when he recently commented that he'd like to make Wolfgang Van Halen's addition to his self-titled band a permanent thing. But the guitarist says that VH fans shouldn't worry about this signaling Wolfgang's exit, as he plans to work around the Van Halen commitments.
Just before Creed and Alter Bridge guitarist Mark Tremonti was preparing to kick off the first tour with his solo project Tremonti, he found out the bassist Brian Marshall would be unable to join him on the road. Enter Wolfgang Van Halen, who agreed to step in for the tour. Less than 24 hours later, Tremonti's first show was in Coventry, R.I., and now behind the scenes footage has been released of the events leading up to that concert.
Tremonti, the solo project of Creed/Alter Bridge guitarist Mark Tremonti, recently kicked off their first tour, but it was not without a few bumps in the road. Days before the tour was set to get under way, bassist Brian Marshall had to bow out due to personal reasons, leaving Tremonti without a bassist. After a quick phone call to a friend, Tremonti had a new bassist with quite a pedigree in rock, Wolfgang Van Halen had agreed to fill in the position on the trek.
