(hennemusic) The first Van Halen album with David Lee Roth in 27 years has at least one fan: guitarist Mark Tremonti of Alter Bridge and Creed. Tremonti says he witnessed a live performance by Eddie, Alex and Wolfgang Van Halen of the full new album at Eddie's 5150 studios.

In a new interview with Austria's Mulatschag TV, Mark was asked about his band friendship with VH bassist Wolfgang Van Halen. "We played with Van Halen years and years ago at Madison Square Garden and Palace in Detroit," said Tremonti. "The first time I saw Wolfgang, he was just a little… probably five-year-old kid or six-year-old kid.Eddie, [VH] that day, gave me one of his guitars, so I got to know Eddie.

"Then years went by and Wolfgang ended up being a fan of Alter Bridge, so we got to know him through Alter Bridge," he continued. "And Wolfgang invited us to go see soundcheck when Van Halen did a tour a couple of years ago, and we were the only in there, so it was quite a treat. And then recently, I was in Los Angeles and Wolfgang invited me to his Dad's house and I got to go to 5150 studios and watch Eddie and Alex and Wolfgang play their new record from front to back. So I was one of the only people who have heard the new Van Halen. It was incredible." more on this story
