Biography

A founding member of hard rock bands Creed and Alter Bridge, Mark Tremonti was named "Guitarist of the Year" for three consecutive years by Guitar World, while Total Guitar magazine listed him as the fourth greatest heavy metal guitarist of all time in 2011. Born in Detroit, Michigan, on April 18, 1974 Tremonti started Creed in 1995 with singer Scott Stapp. Joined by bassist Brian Marshall and drummer Scott Phillips, the band recorded their first album, 1997's My Own Prison, which was certified six times platinum; their 1999 follow-up, Human Clay, fared even better, with massive hit singles such as "Higher" and "With Arms Wide Open" (which won the band a Grammy Award in 2001), pushing the record to diamond and 11-times platinum status. A third album, Weathered, followed in 2001, but tensions between Stapp and Tremonti grew and Creed disbanded in 2004. With Stapp embarking on a solo career, the remaining Creed members formed Alter Bridge with Mayfield Four singer Myles Kennedy and released several albums that were close in sound to their former band. When Creed reunited in 2009, Tremonti alternated his time between both groups. Three years later, Tremonti recorded his first solo album, All I Was, which was released in July 2012. 2015's Cauterize, his sophomore solo outing, and 2016's Dust, were recorded at the same time, and featured bass work from Wolfgang Van Halen. ~ Christian Genzel
