Wolfgang Van Halen has finished recording bass tracks on 20 new songs for Tremonti’s upcoming second album.
Creed and Alter Bridge guitarist Mark Tremonti tells TeamRock.com that he believes Wolfgang Van Halen’s bass playing will take his second solo album to the next level.
Guitarist Eric Friedman handled bass duties on the Creed and Alter Bridge man’s 2012 title All I Was before Van Halen became part of the live lineup. And the band leader believes things have moved up a notch after the bassist struck up a strong partnership with drummer Garrett Whitlock.
Tremonti says, “He’s such a quick learner – he gets everything in two seconds. He came in a few days late for our last writing session and we were kidding with him that the new songs were tough and he’d have to catch up. But he learned them in two seconds.
“From the first record to the second everyone’s going to notice a big difference on the rhythm section side of things. He’s the best of the best out there on bass. It’s going to make a big difference.”
Tremonti plans to release their second album in March of next year, followed by a tour.
