(1.) How did you discover Alter Bridge?

I was a Creed fan in high school and learned their songs when I was beginning to play guitar. Loved Creed and loved their heavier stuff especially. After they broke up, I bought ODR on CD (an actual physical CD!). I thought it was a fantastic album but my interest in the band sadly declined after that album (for no legitimate reason). I purchased Blackbird and ABIII, sure, but I didn't get "into" the band again until Fortress. It was completely my fault, but AB's songs didn't have the instant catchiness to them that drew me in at the time. This is not a knock on the band but more a comment on being disappointed in myself for not giving them more of a chance at the time.

Once Fortress came out, I listened to it and loved it. Eventually, I listened to it over and over again. But if Fortress was so good, their other stuff had to be good too, right? I went back and listened to every song in the catalog over and over and knew I found my #1 band. Once you get into AB's songs, it's quite a rewarding experience.

(2.) What is the meaning of the username you chose?

After getting back into playing guitar and being from MD, I was able to purchase the guitar of my dreams, a 2015 PRS Tremonti 10 Top in Charcoal Burst. I got it through Fret 12 and recently was able to get Mark's signature on the back plate at a Tremonti concert in Winston-Salem. Fantastic show and a great guy.

(3.) How do you spend your free time?

Playing guitar, gaming, with my family.

(4.) What is the name of one other band you enjoy other than AB?

Breaking Benjamin, Shinedown, Tremonti (obviously), Wovenwar, Veer Union, Seether, Theory of a Deadman, Three Days Grace, Saint Asonia, Chevelle, Papa Roach

(5.) What is the title of the last movie you watched?

Star Wars TFA

(6.) What is something about you that even your closest friends don't know?

I briefly appeared on Nickelodeon as a child.

Don't think I've introduced myself before so here goes:

(1.) How did you discover Alter Bridge?
I heard Open Your Eyes on the radio and was mesmerized by Myles vocals and I've been a huge fan ever since. Also, thanks to Alter Bridge, I discovered The Mayfield Four.

(2.) What is the meaning of the username you chose?
The Alice in Chains song "Right Turn" which is credited as "Alice Mudgarden" because it features Mark Arm of Mudhoney and Chris Cornell of Soundgarden as guest vocals.

(3.) How do you spend your free time?
Listening to music of course, playing Basketball and Golf, watching TV, etc.

(4.) What is the name of one other band you enjoy other than AB?
My music taste is pretty eclectic, so I'll list some of my current favorites. Carly Rae Jepsen, Grimes, David Bowie, Sturgill Simpson, Charli XCX, Kanye West, Death Grips, Amy Winehouse, Kacey Musgraves, Kendrick Lamar, etc.

(5.) What is the title of the last movie you watched?
Song of the Sea.

(1.) How did you discover Alter Bridge?
My buddy picked me up to go to Taco Bell, and he was playing ODR in his car. Down to My Last was playing when we pulled up, and I made him wait until it was over before we went inside. I remember saying "this reminds me of Creed, but better". Did some research when I got home and found out that they were in fact Creed with a new singer. My buddy burned me a copy and the rest is history.

(2.) What is the meaning of the username you chose?
It's a name I've used for usernames since high school. I got it from Jay and Silent Bob Strikes Back, when Jay called Silent Bob "Tons of fun" haha. The 88 part is my birth year.

(3.) How do you spend your free time?
Listening to music, playing guitar, playing video games, etc.

(4.) What is the name of one other band you enjoy other than AB?
Big fan of the 80s/90s. Van Halen was my favorite band before I discovered Alter Bridge.

(5.) What is the title of the last movie you watched?
Deadpool

(6.) What is something about you that even your closest friends don't know?
That I smoke cigarettes (I know, disguising habit).I don't smoke around them out of respect/shame lol.

(1.) How did you discover Alter Bridge?
I was never a big Creed fan (but my stepsister was), so I knew of all the stuff going on with them. I was late realizing who AB was, and heard some songs from ABIII. Once I heard Myles' voice, goner ;).

(2.) What is the meaning of the username you chose?
It's been my username on Queensryche's board for years, so it's just who I am :).

(3.) How do you spend your free time?
Not a lot of that in the summer (I make wedding cakes and work in a restaurant), but music, reading and still more baking.

(4.) What is the name of one other band you enjoy other than AB?
Queensryche, Rush, Tremonti

(5.) What is the title of the last movie you watched?
Captain America: Civil War

(6.) What is something about you that even your closest friends don't know?
Nothing I can think of.

Hi guys! I've actually been a member for three years, but I never used the forum after I signed up. How foolish of me haha!

(1.) How did you discover Alter Bridge?
My parents had the Weathered album by Creed, which was released when I was 3 years old. So, as they played it a lot, it really became the first album and band I actually recognised for what they were doing. One thing led to another, my parents bought the One Day Remains album in 2004, and then the rest is history.

(2.) What is the meaning of the username you chose?
It's my name and date of birth - very original!

(3.) How do you spend your free time?
With family, or listening to music. I do very little else.

(4.) What is the name of one other band you enjoy other than AB?
There are many, but Velvet Revolver is a massive favourite.

(5.) What is the title of the last movie you watched?
The Dark Knight.

(6.) What is something about you that even your closest friends don't know?
How much of a music lover I really am - seriously, it's sad.

Open Your Eyes on the radio and I was hooked....I have been around the whole time. I was a regular when alterbridgeband.net had forums.

Hybrid of Metallica, Robert Cray Band / Creed

I love sports, especially baseball and sex ;) ...both fantasy and reality.

Metallica.

The newest Star Wars...I was curious.

See number 3 and read between the PG lines.

Welcome!


Thank you :)
Just noticed I missed the questions for this thread, so here goes....
(1.) How did you discover Alter Bridge?
Well, I was already aware of Creed, so when I heard 3 of them were back with a new, much better vocalist, I just had to check it out and found a few early live clips and the Open Your Eyes video. Suffice to say I was blown away and booked tickets for a show that day.
(2.) What is the meaning of the username you chose?
Lol, it is a nickname a friend gave me because I am really good a figuring out where plots are heading in TV shows and films.
(3.) How do you spend your free time?
What is this "free time" you speak of? ;) Nah, mainly playing guitar, writing, watching tv and film and gaming.
(4.) What is the name of one other band you enjoy other than AB?
Seriously, just one?!? Er.............. Furyon.
(5.) What is the title of the last movie you watched?
Star Wars The Force Awakens (just finished doing the complete saga to celebrate Star Wars weekend)
(6.) What is something about you that even your closest friends don't know?
Nope.
