    Default Just interviewed Mark Tremonti of Alter Bridge/Creed

    Hey guys,

    Just had the chance to do a video interview. I think it turned out quite well :-)
    Will share the link once I edited and uploaded. One thing though, he's a great guy who surely knows how to play great rock guitar.

    For early next year there's a Bonanassa interview in the pipeline, I hope this is gonna happen finally.

    I know what you mean, but I think he does a tremendous job in keeping handmade music alive plus it should be very informative doing some gear talk with him :-)

    Looking forward to both interviews! I'm a big Bonamassa fan. He's coming around here in the spring, but tickets this time are too expensive for my blood. Even the cheap seats are almost $100.

    I will post the Tremonti interview tomorrow or the day after tomorrow.
    Bonamassa's ticket prices are tough - especially for younger people, who now might never see their hero live.

    However, I am currently working on meeting Adele and last Thursday I interviewed Jordan Rudess of Dream Theater, but that was a phone interview only that I will transcript into German only. He's such a humble guy!

    Excellent interview! I enjoyed that. I've been a big fan of Mark's playing since Alter Bridge's first album and his new solo album sounds great.
