Does anyone else hear horns during Poison in your veins? I'm sure it's just Myles playing guitar, but those long drawn out notes over the main riff would have been so bad ass if they'd been done by a mini horns section (a la "B*tch came back" by Theory of a Deadman).

No you won't...


Ehhh, might as well. Could get some more publicity during an already high-profile day. I can see the headlines now. "During a live stream of an Alter Bridge concert in Dallas on the day their latest album, The Last Hero, is released, a diehard fan streaks on camera. We don't know what his motives were to streak. All we can say is that the band was not in danger in any way and was in fact laughing throughout the whole incident."

Laughing at my micropeen certainly. Causes inspiration for their new album, "Denying Condoms Forevermore."

...anyways...
I figured out how to play most of The Other Side on guitar. Unique riffing on that song.

Well, not so unique, I would say, but definitely fun to play.

I suppose unique to me because I'm not overly familiar with that tuning. I don't typically venture too far out of standard or drop d. Anytime I try and write anything in that drop B, it always come out sounding like a wannabe Come To Life or something

Totally agree man. Poison is probably the worst song they've ever done. It's so bland. No offense.


You're entitled to your own opinion, of course. But you're wrong. That chorus melody is a thing to treasure forevermore (see what i did there?)

Also do not agree with this opinion about Poison. Impossible that this is their worst song, for after all they recorded Champion. Imo by far their worst effort ever.

Have you heard We Don't Care At All? Champion blows it out of the water...I'm not saying there is a 'bad' AB song...but if there is, its WDCAA

Haha I have exactly the same problem. It's one of those reasons why I love All Hope Is Gone. That verse melody is something else, especially on that tuning imo.

I just can't hear that chorus :lol but IDK, for some people 'Coming Home' is one of their worst songs ever and for me is one of my favorites so... :shrug

Watch Your Words is easily one of their most underrated songs.
