So I've been a member here for quite some time, but I never actually introduced myself (rude). So here it goes. I'm Cody. 23 years old. Alter Bridge has been in my top 5 favorite bands since 2004. One Day Remains was actually the first album I ever bought. Bought it a few months after it released. I've been playing guitar close to 9 years now (self taught) and am in a band called ALL HAIL (http://www.facebook.com/allhailprog). Playing music professionally is my life's pursuit. My favorite guitar player is John Petrucci (from Dream Theater) but Mark Tremonti is also one of my favorite guitarists/song writers. Although JP is my favorite guitarist, I feel as though out of anyone's playing/writing style, mine more closely resemble's Mark's. He's also inspired me to toy around with alternate tunings, which have expanded my writing and playing tenfold. Among my other favorite bands are, Coheed & Cambria, System of a Down, Twelve Foot Ninja, Deftones, Transatlantic, Thank You Scientist, Periphery, Animals As Leaders, Van Halen, Tremonti (obviously) and more. AB has changed my life, as I'm sure they've changed all of yours as well, and I'm very happy to be part of this community. See you guys at the shows!

EDIT:

Figured I'd add my answers to the questions.

(1.) Heard a song on the internet. Don't actually remember the specifics. Pretty sure it was Broken Wings.
(2.) My favorite band is Dream Theater and my name is Cody, so CodyLikesDT
(3.) I spend my free time mostly on projects alone or with friends - music, film, writing. I also have been dating my girlfriend for 5 years, and I love spending time with her.
(4.) I already mentioned DT, so Coheed and Cambria
(5.) Hot Fuzz - fantastic movie
(6.) My life is kind of an open book, especially to my friends. Hmmmm. A lot of people don't know that I was run over by a car when I was five years old. It lacerated my liver and I almost died. Children's Hospital saved my life.

*me at the checkout counter at panda express*
Cashier: Would you like to donate a dollar to the children's hospital today?
Me: Damn right I wanna donate a dollar to the children's hospital.
RIP Edward Bozoian, my best friend. 1989 - 2009

Hey folks! Long-time fan here, and since I've been cranking the birthday records today (ABIII and US release of Fortress) I did some snooping around online for AB fans.

1) I was asked by some buddies in high school if I had ever listened to Alter Bridge, when I had listened to many bands like them. I put on "Metalingus", and while it wasn't my favorite track and didn't sell me outright, the technical skill behind all of it drew me in.

2) It's a screen/username I've used for years now. It's convenient because it isn't some typical really-long-and-hard-to-pronounce username and can be treated like a real name.

3) I read, write, watch films, listen to/play music, study, and play a variety of games.

4) Led Zeppelin, but there are so many more. AB and Zeppelin are the top two bands of my list and have been for years now, though, for what it's worth.

5) Stephen King's Children of the Corn. In my defense, I'm doing the OHMC this year and I hadn't actually seen it complete before, so I figured I'd just get it out of the way.

6) In general, I'm just more weird than I say I am -- and it's not really because I withhold things from my greatest friends. It's more due to the fact that these weird behaviors and stuff are mostly subtle and subconscious, mundane.

Hello, I’m Reuben and I’m from Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada. I was a member of the old marktremonti and ABB.net boards in 2004-2008. My screen name back then was rubes, although I didn’t post much, just a few tabs; I recognize a few names from back then. I’ve been a big fan of AB the whole time, just in a less social, more “bedroom guitarist” kind of way. And I loved their work on Fortress, which is in my opinion the best AB album so far.

(1.) How did you discover Alter Bridge?
I had learned some creed tunes as a new guitarist in 2001, and I loved Mark’s playing on a lot of their darker tracks like What if, say I, Ode, Bullets, weathered. I randomly googled creed a few years later in I think May 2004(I was 16) to see what they were up to, and found out they had broken up but had started a new group. So I checked it out and lurked the forums for a bit. When the Open Your Eyes video was released on vh1.com and I heard that solo, I just loved it. I bought ODR on its release date, and before I was finished listening to Find the Real, I was hooked. Since then, both Mark’s and Myles’ playing style and the way they have progressed over the last decade has greatly influenced my playing. Unfortunately, I’ve never been able to attend an Alter bridge show because I live in northwestern Ontario and the closest tour dates have been about 8hrs away in Minneapolis. Juggling work and life, it’s never worked out for me to make the trip at the right time (I was able to see Myles come through Thunder Bay with Slash a few years back though :rockon ).
So I’m coming back to the boards because of the news of ABV, and I’ve been drawn in by Tremonti’s solo material. I’m really looking forward to hearing dust.

(2.) What is the meaning of the username you chose?
That’s my first name

(3.) How do you spend your free time?
Playing guitar, listening to music, jamming, work, sleep, Netflix, random Wikipedia searches, and hanging out with my wife.

(4.) What is the name of one other band you enjoy other than AB?
I can’t name just one. Got no problem naming like 50 though... Opeth, Tool, Porcupine Tree, scar symmetry, Gojira, Dream Theater, Nevermore, Periphery, Sikth, Dorje, Toska, Wovenwar, Mastodon, Trivium, Metallica, Pantera, Black Sabbath, Clutch, One Bad Son, Royal Blood, Rival Sons, The Glorious Sons, Soundgarden, Joe Bonamassa, Andy Timmons, Mountain, Rush, Deep Purple, Jeff Healey, SRV, Jimi, Led Zeppelin, The Who, G’n’R, Monster Truck, The Sheepdogs, Skynyrd, Whiskey Myers, The Cadillac 3, Neil Young, Bob Dylan, and any old blues stuff

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

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