Van Halen bassist Wolfgang Van Halen has confirmed that he would like to continue working with Creed and Alter Bridge guitarist Mark Tremonti’s band Tremonti.
Wolfgang was brought in as a last minute replacement for Creed and Alter Bridge bassist Brian Marshall for Tremonti’s current tour of Europe, after Marshall abruptly withdrew from the trek for undisclosed reasons.
Speaking with Robb’s MetalWorks, Wolfgang said he would be glad to do it all again: “Yeah, every chance that I have. I’d love to be a part of this. If they’ll let me, I guess.”
In a recent interview with Metal Shrine Mark Tremonti declared his intentions to record with Wolfgang: “We’ve already talked about [recording] and we look forward to it. I think it’ll add a whole other element to this band.”
He added: “He’s a very positive person and good to be around and an incredibly talented musician. Things have been going well.”
Tremonti explained that Wolfgang was among his first choices when he originally put the band together: “We had talked about having him being a part of the band early on, but Van Halen got back together and did a nine-month tour together and it was right in the window when we needed to do this, so we moved on without him.”
Tremonti is touring in promotion of his debut solo album, ‘All I Was,’ which came out this past July.
