WOLFGANG VAN HALEN SPEAKS OUT ON TOURING WITH MARK TREMONTI

9/17/2012

Van Halen bassist Wolfgang Van Halen made his first two appearances as part of Creed/Alter Bridge guitarist Mark Tremonti's solo band last week at shows in Rhode Island and New York City. This marks the first time Wolfgang has played with anyone outside of his father Eddie, his uncle Alex and singer David Lee Roth. We asked him how he felt about doing these gigs: "It all feels incredible. It's just, it's so much fun to be able to do something different, but also do it with three of my best friends in the music business. So it's like, we're just four best friends playing awesome music and it's -- I'm just having a great time."

The two shows last week were warm-ups for Tremonti's headlining stint on the annual HardDrive Live tour, presented by HardDrive Radio. The trek begins on Thursday (September 20th) in Flint, Michigan.

Van Halen is replacing Tremonti's bandmate from Creed and Alter Bridge, Brian Marshall, who is sitting out the Tremonti trek for undisclosed personal reasons. The other members of Tremonti's touring band include Eric Friedman on guitar and Garrett Whitlock on drums.

Tremonti is on the road behind his debut solo album, All I Was, which came out this past July.

Wolfgang Van Halen's dad, Eddie Van Halen, is currently recuperating from emergency intestinal surgery, which will keep the Van Halen band off the road until early 2013.
