Why Wolfgang Van Halen Joined Creed's Tremonti

09/17/2012
.
(hennemusic) Creed/Alter Bridge guitarist Mark Tremonti made the most of a bad situation this week when bassist Brian Marshall advised his band - on 24 hours notice - that he was unable to join them for the tour in support of Tremonti's debut solo release, "All I Was."

A bit of good luck was on Tremonti's side, as a good friend of his happened to be in the city when he received the news.

"It was an amazing turn of events," said Tremonti. "We had no time to rehearse for this tour. We were just gonna roll right into it. We were gonna get together at our buddies'… Eve To Adam was another band that was on tour with us with Creed, and they were nice enough to say, 'You can use our rehearsal pad.' So we rushed into the rehearsal pad. And that day, Brian had something personal come up and he was, like, 'Man, I'm really sorry, I can't do the tour.' And we were just kind of like, 'Ahh… I love you, man, but, man, this is really bad timing.'"

"And these guys kind of whispered to me, 'Wolfgang [Van Halen] is in town with the Sevendust guys, just rocking in the studio with them,'" he continued. "So I immediately called him and he was, like, 'Hey, how're you doing, buddy?' I was, like, 'Not so good.' [laughs] So I said, 'Brian can't do the tour and I heard you're around. What do you think?' And he's, like, 'Are you kidding me?'" Read more and watch a video interview with Mark and Wolfgang
