During in a recent interview with Loudwire, Creed and Alter Bridge guitarist Mark Tremonti has shared a funny story about Eddie Van Halen and his son Wolfgang Van Halen.
Here’s the story:
“You’ll play a show and you’ll just kind of see him sitting there smiling. When you’re on stage though, a light switch kinda turns and you kind of become this other persona, so it’s hard to shake your nerves. It felt good, him being there.
We went to go see [Van Halen] practice. We were at 5150 studios and they were playing [A Different Kind of Truth]. They had finished a song and I was like, ‘Wolfie, that was a killer bass line.’ And Eddie’s like, ‘Were my parts good?’ [laughs]
Like, dude, you’re Eddie Van Halen. All your parts are good. One time I was warming up in L.A. for a show and I’m warming my left hand up and I see somebody standing behind me for a minute. I hear him go, ‘You don’t pick very much, do you?’ I turn around and it’s Eddie Van Halen.”
