When asked in an interview, Wolfgang told he'd love to be a part of Tremonti if "they let him".

Tremonti, the band led by Creed and Alter Bridge guitarist Mark Tremonti, gave an interview to "Robb's MetalWorks" on October 7 at the Sunken Gardens Theater in San Antonio, Texas, reports Blabbermouth. You can watch the chat below.

Van Halen bassist Wolfgang Van Halen made his first appearance as part of Tremonti's solo band last month at a show in Rhode Island. This marks the first time Wolfgang has played with anyone outside of his father Eddie, his uncle Alex and singer David Lee Roth.

Asked if he is going to be involved with future Tremonti tours and recording sessions, Wolfgang told, "Yeah, every chance that I have. I'd love to be a part of this. If they'll let me, I guess," he joked.

Wolfgang Van Halen is replacing Tremonti's bandmate from Creed and Alter Bridge, Brian Marshall, who is sitting out the Tremonti trek for undisclosed personal reasons. The other members of Tremonti's touring band include Eric Friedman on guitar and Garrett Whitlock on drums.

Tremonti is on the road behind his debut solo album, "All I Was", which came out in July 2012.

    That would be so awesome! It would be interesting to see what kind of an approach Wolfgang would bring to the table in a Tremonti recording session.
    The kid ain't a terrible bassist. I was quite impressed by his work on the newest Van Halen record
    I'd love to hear Wolfgang not in Van Halen. For him to really shine in originality, not covering the basslines of Michael Anthony. That would be downright awesome!
    Good for Wolf, if he actually does get into a different band. He kind of got absorbed into VH almost exclusively based on his family ties, without any real experience in other bands his own accord. He did an awesome job, but if he wasn't a Van Halen, he would have had almost zero chance of being in such a high-profile band at that young of an age, getting that kind of experience. He did a great job on the last VH album, and I'd be happy to see him finding his own way in other bands. Good luck, Wolf!
