Video: MARK TREMONTI Interviewed In Milan conducted an interview with CREED and ALTER BRIDGE guitarist and TREMONTI frontman Mark Tremonti on February 9 before TREMONTI's concert at the Magazzini Generali in Milan, Italy. You can now watch the chat below.

Tremonti lucked out when he got VAN HALEN bassist Wolfgang Van Halen to join Tremonti's touring band at the last minute to replace Brian Marshall. Tremonti recently told Metalshrine that he's looking forward to extending Van Halen's tenure in the band. Tremonti explained, "We've already talked about (recording) and we look forward to it. I think it'll add a whole other element to this band."

Tremonti said that Van Halen is "a very positive person and good to be around and an incredibly talented musician," adding that he had considered bringing him into the band at an earlier stage — until VAN HALEN decided to go on tour.

The guitarist told The Pulse Of Radio that he couldn't be happier with the touring band he has now. "I couldn't feel more confident in the people that are in my band," he said. "I feel like I could play awful and these guys would make up for that. I think this is a group of four guys who on their day off would play music all day long and it's awesome. You know, I think we all are very confident with one another and we all get along great. Usually, in almost every band, there's somebody that ruins it for everybody — there's nobody in this band. We're just all fun."

Marshall, who also plays in CREED and ALTER BRIDGE, had to bow out of the tour the night before it started due to personal issues.

Tremonti is touring in support of his first solo disc, "All I Was".
