    Great list! i gave Tremonti a listen and agree that it’s rawking. Would be really neat to see him live with Wolfgang Van Halen. Young Wolfie has played with two amazing guitarists in his career!

    Will check out some others from your list, thanks for compiling.

    i wonder what you think of Deftones’ album, Koi No Yokan? That’s my favorite album of 2012.

      Thanks Rob. I have seen Mark Tremonti with Alter Bridge. The guy knows how to rawk and work a crowd. Wolfie has definitely been exposed to very talented musicians in his young life.

      I checked out the Deftones’ Album. Not bad at all. They sound like a couple of bands I listen to regularly. 10 Years (maybe a bit heavier) and Red.
