Alter Bridge bringing back the solo!
 
i posted this over at the AB board but i thought i'ld post this here as well.

Now mainstream rock radio at the moment is filled with these "pop-punk" bands who can barely play one fast muted chord over and over. What am i hoping for (and i'm sure the band is as well) is that Alter Bridge along with bands such as Velvet Revolver can be part of a mini-revolution that makes people forget about Simple Plan, Good Charlotte and the like and embrace bands who can play their instruements.
*puts on best arnie accent*
Come on Mark become the Terminator and rid the world of these crappy bands, you are back. What did Arnie say to Mozart? I'll be Bach!

As long as the shredding is contained in "catchy" songs then I think its a distinct possiblity, as long as the marketing is done properly. VR can do it with Slither and other songs off Contraband and Alter Bridge can also be part of the action. Audioslave is also bringing out an album later this year and Tom Morello, Slash and Mark Tremonti rocking the airwaves!

As a very handy by-product Myles could also make having a singer who can do just that a mandatory part of the pie, not a handy extra!

Who's with me?

Can I get an Amen? :D

Amen.

Whoa, dude. Those are like my three favorite bands (even though I have yet to hear Alterbridge)!!!

It's nice to see the real fans sticking around who are all about the music. With Alterbridge, we now know the people who were real Creed fans all along from the chicks that just think Stapp is hot.

about your last comment there will be many who will follow Stapp and not pay attention to Alter Bridge and vice versa. While I think everyone should support both we shouldnt have a superiority complex!

anyhow back to the topic on hand i'm expecting these three bands's albums

AB
VR
Audioslave

to be my fav albums of the year, straight-up rock with bands who's talent levels should be illlegal. old style rock and roll the way it should be! lets hope such bands make pop-punk and nu-metal redundant!

Sooo...your saying that the fans who are excited about Alter Bridge, posting on message boards loudly proclaiming that support are the REAL fans who are there only for the music? hahaaa...yeah....ok dude! There are just as many chicks out there who are there because they think Tremonti is hot....even though they will loudly proclaim it's all about the music for them. When how could it be about the music when 99% of the people out here haven't heard a damn note of it??? ;)

Torn Daredevil 05-26-2004 10:03 AM

No, I am absolutely correct.

Screw the people who like bands because the people in them are attractive. I pity anybody like that...those people who spend more time looking at the album cover and pictures inside than listening to the cd.

:mad1:

I can fully expect this new band to be decent because I know their skill as musicians. There probably are a lot of poser chicks here that think Tremonti is hot and that's why they "love" the idea of this new band. Well, I tell them to go somewhere else and go follow Justin Timberlake. I am an 18 year old guy who has been a Creed fan longer than most people here and these kind of people piss me off.

Mertie, I have to agree with you. (I know, don't pass out. ;) )

There are those that oooh and ahhh over Tremo just much as some do over Stapp. And there are those who will follow Stapp because they appreciate him as a performer. I think it cuts both ways.

I do think though that most people are excited over AB because of Tremo's past work and their banking on his talent as a guitarist and song writer.

Torn Daredevil 05-26-2004 10:15 AM

Nevermind. And you all know Stapp's solo CD is gonna completely suck.

RockGoddess 05-26-2004 10:17 AM

Hellboy, please don't make blanket statements about what people know or don't know. If you're going to make an intelligent argument fine, but please don't tell me what I know.

**passes out** JK ;)

I'm looking forward to hearing Tremo's work too :cool: And looking forward to Stapps as well. I think it will be exciting to hear the differences in both their efforts.
