Gotham Interview with Mark Tremonti

Whether you’re a guitarist or just a fan of rock and roll, there’s no denying the power and force that Mark Tremonti brings with him on studio recordings and live performances. You might know Tremonti best as the guitarist of the multi-platinum Grammy-award winning band Creed, but in 2010 he was part of one of the best albums of the year with “not so side” side-project Alter Bridge.

Mark Tremonti of Alter Bridge

Tremonti is absolutely nuts on the guitar. He shines on Creed tunes and he shines on Alter Bridge tunes. But I don’t think I’ve ever heard his guitar work sound as honed and raw and hard as it is on Alter Bridge’s latest album, AB III. Not only is Tremonti tearing it up on the album with his axe, but he’s also contributing with his writing skills and vocals. The man is a renaissance guy and there’s no doubt that he is a major player in the success of this band. The power that is generated with the combination of him and Myles Kennedy is absolutely insane.

Fortunately, I had the chance to catch up with Tremonti for an edition of Gotham Radio. Tremonti is taking a break right now, just coming off of a three month tour. But don’t let that fool you; the guy is working on a solo album, talking about getting Creed back into the swing of things and gearing up for a tour with Alter Bridge that should kick off around April.

Tremonti is a class-act. If you haven’t picked up AB III, I don’t know what you’re waiting for, but you are missing out on what is one of the best – if not THE best – albums of 2010. From the beginning track to the final pounding song (which includes Tremonti on co-lead vocals), you will be subject to a dark, heavy and altogether incredible album from one of the best rock bands on the scene today.
