Default Re: Alex Van Halen

I thought their first album was a game-changer. With Eddie's guitar licks and the vocal harmonies, and of course Alex. I never much cared for them after they got all keyboardy/poppy. I think Alex is a great drummer, but I always hated the sound of his drums. They sound like rubbermaid trashcans to me.... like those street musicians ....
Well...I feel old now too.

I've only seen Van Halen once, back in 1991. I know this may be sacrilegious to some VH fans but I was never really a huge fan on them until Sammy joined the band. To this day, I don't even own one of their records with Dave. That could also be due to the fact that I grew up on Sammy Hagar more than Van Halen.

Anyway, awesome drummer. Very unique sound. One snare hit and you know it's Alex.

Happy Birthday Alex!! Thanks for the music!
