Mick Burgess of Metal Express Radio conducted an interview with VAN HALEN and TREMONTI bassist Wolfgang Van Halen on October 15 at O2 Academy in Newcastle, England. You can now listen to the chat using the audio player below.
Wolfgang Van Halen made his first appearance as part of CREED and ALTER BRIDGE guitarist Mark Tremonti's solo band in September at a show in Rhode Island. This marks the first time Wolfgang has played with anyone outside of his father Eddie, his uncle Alex and singer David Lee Roth.
Asked if he is going to be involved with future TREMONTI tours and recording sessions, Wolfgang told "Robb's MetalWorks", "Yeah, every chance that I have. I'd love to be a part of this. If they'll let me, I guess," he joked.
Wolfgang 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.
