Mark Stone was the bass guitar player in the rock band Mammoth from 1972–1974. Along with Stone, Mammoth featured Eddie Van Halen (lead vocals and guitar) and Alex Van Halen (drums).[1] In early 1974 vocalist David Lee Roth joined the band, who shortly thereafter changed their name to Van Halen. By around mid 1974, the group felt that Stone's commitment to school outweighed his interests in pursuing music professionally, and decided to look for another bass player. Michael Anthony, from the Pasadena-area band Snake, was chosen as Stone's replacement. Stone remained on good terms with his former bandmates, and attended Eddie Van Halen's marriage to Valerie Bertinelli in 1981.

Stone is still currently living in Sierra Madre. He appeared in the DVD Van Halen Story – The Early Years, released in 2003 by E1 Entertainment. In 2015, Stone was a guest with Fan Halen, a tribute band mimicking the early Roth-era lineup of Van Halen.[2]
