Guitar Gods rarely look backward in coming forward. Mark Tremonti, for instance, has recently aligned his star with none other than a certain Frank Sinatra – but more of that later. The pressing matter in hand is the fretboard master’s ongoing tour of the UK and Europe.
Ghost Cult had the honor of chatting with Mark Tremonti of Tremonti, Alter Bridge, and Creed fame on the eve of the release of his new solo album – Tremonti Sings Sinatra! The album is not only a smashing covers album paying tribute to “The Chairman of The Board” – Frank Sinatra, but also with a mission to raise money and awareness of The National Downs Syndrome Society. Mark discussed his inspiration for this project – his daughter, his lifelong obsession with Frank Sinatra, his love of Jazz, how he chose the songs, working with Sinatra’s former bandmates and producers, a potential sequel to the album, and updates on both Alter Bridge and Creed!
Mark Tremonti has cemented himself as one of the staple musicians within the hard-rock scene over the past 3 decades with Creed, Alter Bridge & his own project Tremonti. With this repertoire of music projects, this album is still probably the last thing anyone expected from the man. Covering the ageless classics from Frank Sinatra himself is Tremonti Sings Sinatra (NDSS).
Tragic news as the 25 year old stepdaughter of Chris Daughtry of the band Daughtry, Hannah, has died. Apparently her death was unexpected according to People.com. Daughtry has shared a statement that at least this weekend’s shows from their current tour with Sevendust and Tremonti are postponed for now, as the family awaits more news. We send out sympathies out to Chris and his family at this time. RIP Hannah. Read the statement below.
