Re: Alex Van Halen
Who said Tommy Lee was better than Alex Van Halen, that was a joke right?
Anyways, I really think Alex is a good drummer, both in showmanship and musicianship.
A great example of his style is on the track Girls Gone Bad off of 1984.
I saw Van Hagar in concert and he did a little solo, not nessesarily the most inventive but technicaly I'd say it was pretty good.
Also, love love love his use of Rotos and those octoban thingys
He's not the greatest drummer every but Van Halen wouldn't have been half the band (or (guess 3/4) without him.
