They performed on the Today show this morning. I have no clue about American TV shows, but with 4,2 Mio Twitter followers this seems to be a rather big one, right? His voice sounds so freakin great I'm becoming more and more a WVH fanboy lol.

New song. I like the video. The song itself is rather basic imo.

Ironically, as one of the comments says: 'Love so much that his music is original and doesn't sound like everyone else'

It might be technically basic, but that song has some serious vibe to it. It seems to be in D. I might learn some more of this.

anguyen92 wrote: Thu Dec 10, 2020 5:39 pm Found an article from Ultimate-Guitar about him talking about how he ended up with Tremonti. Let's go ahead and remove any notion that him leaving Tremonti was a bad one, since he wanted to tour with Van Halen in 2015 (and as we all eventually learned, it would have ended up being their last tour ever) and I'm sure Wolfgang wanted to spend as much time with his dad as possible until the end in between working on his solo album.

"You did two albums with Mark Tremonti [in the band Tremonti], [2015's] 'Cauterize' and [2016's] 'Dust.' I saw you play with Tremonti in New York, it was probably five-six years ago How was that experience for you?"
"Yeah, the Alter Bridge guys - Mark, Myles, Philips, Brian - I love those guys, they're fantastic. That's a really fun story, how I got into Tremonti.

"I've been hanging out with Morgan [Rose] from Sevendust in New Jersey, just fucking around, I had some of my gear up there and I get a call from Gareth [Whitlock, drums] and he's like, 'Hey man, are you in Jersey right now?'

"I said, 'Yeah, why?' He's like, 'We need a bass player. We're about to go on tour, can you come over?' I was like, 'Well, I just happen to have my gear. I'm 45 minutes away from you, I'll be right there.'

"And we spent that night in the rehearsal space in New York, playing through the first album [2012's 'All I Was'], I had to learn everything.

"I was familiar with the songs, they sent me the album and I was like, 'This is fucking great.' But I didn't know how to play it - that was a different thing.

"And we spent the night playing everything, and then the next day at Rhode Island we played a show and I had to play everything."

Pardon my French, but holy. Fucking. Shit. He learned the entirety of All I Was in one night, and played a full show with them the next day?! I mean, I know Wolfgang is talented, but WOW. That blows me away. :eek

Loving all the songs we've gotten so far, and really REALLY can't wait to hear the full album and see them live. I recently asked Garrett on Facebook about their touring plans, and he said they're just kind of waiting to see what happens Covid-wise, but that they can't wait to get out on the road whenever they can.

He's undoubtedly very talented and his voice is very strong but I just want a bit more edge to his music. It sounds a little generic right now. It's very very competent for a debut album though.

His video for Don't Back Down already reached 1 million views on Youtube. That's pretty good for a rockband.
