Alter Bridge's Tremonti and Kennedy Talk Chemistry

Alter Bridge

(Metal Hammer) Alter Bridge's Mark Tremonti and Myles Kennedy say they still constantly learn from each other after playing together for 12 years. Kennedy says he and his bandmate are "kindred spirits" who absorb each other's musical influences and techniques.

He tells Loudwire: "Mark's right hand is his attack. He reminds me of James Hetfield. It's something which is not in my repertoire. I still can't touch what he does, but I think that's good for me to try and absorb that.

"Both of us are sponges. Both of us always want to learn and evolve. I don't think either one of us feel content by any stretch of the imagination. We both have long ways to go."

He adds: "I recognized a kindred spirit from the beginning. The guy sold 30 million records by the time we started playing together, and every day before and after soundcheck, he's just obsessed with trying to evolve.

"I think that's really important - it shows you truly care about the art, its not about how many records can you sell. There's no rockstar ego. It's about the music."

Tremonti adds: "I think I try to pick Myles' jazz and blues brain and I think over the years I've probably thrown a hell of a lot of metal at him, and you just learn from whoever you're writing with and we've been working together now for what seems like 15 years or so. I still don't know how to sing like him." Watch the full interview here.
