    I absolutely LOVE Alter Bridge! The moment I first listened to them I just knew there was something different about them, and they instantly became my favourite band. Also, I am an A level music student and nearly all of my compositions have some Alter Bridge-y element to them, probably because of Mark Tremonti, who is my all-time favourite songwriter/guitarist and maybe even my favourite musician.

    I'd love to hear your opinions of Alter Bridge, favourite songs/albums etc.

    Yeah I was so looking forward to that gig, but it sold out in my area almost instantly. I was devastated!
    Also, ABIII is Alter Bridge's most recent album and, in most people's opinions, the best, so I'd recommended you give it a listen. y

    I met AB in 2008, such lovely down to earth guys. We had chips backstage and they played some new songs for us (now released 'Isolation' and 'All Hope is Gone' from ABIII).

    Definitely my favourite band - have seen them 4 times in total and hope to see them end of 2013 when they play with Halestorm!

    Love AB, seen them live twice - they were immense!

    They're on tour in October with two of my other favourite bands - Shinedown and Halestorm! Anyone else going?

    Awesome! Just waiting for my tickets to get here now, I saw AB in Newcastle last time they came but they're not coming here on this tour. Definitely worth the travelling to hear some of their new songs though

    Yeah Slash is a cool dude, i was watching a video when a crazed fan ran onto the stage and tried to attack him, Slash fell and got straight back up and carried on playing! Now when someone threw a little stone at Axl Rose he stopped the whole show and had a ***** fit! That shows true showmanship! Yeah the band were great also! Did you like Creed then, the old band Tremonti was in? And have you listened to Alter Bridge yet?

    That shows true showmanship! * On Slash's part!

    i have started to listen to alter bridge, only just realised that they are myles band away from the slash project im impressed i must say, think they have made some fantastic stuff and have a real unique sound

    completely agree about axl though, i loved them in the old days but i wouldnt bother with guns n roses now and i havent listened to chinese democracy

    listening even more (to alter bridge) i really like it! so my question to other fans - if i go to buy one album, which on should i buy?

    I guess it depends on where you want to start. If you want to start from the beginning, One Day Remains is their first album. There's some pretty amazing stuff on there. But if you want the best one, you should definitely get ABIII. For me, that album's completely faultless from start to end.

    All their albums are more or less perfect in my opinion though, so I guarantee whichever one you get, you'll want the other ones pretty soon after!

    Love Alter Bridge and these types of American rock bands, one of my favourite bands after Shinedown and I was desperate to get tickets for their show in the Autumn but didn't get them :/ I still love Alter Bridge though
