Re: Alex Van Halen
I can't believe I've actually seen some people on here say that Alex is basically mediocre or just "ok". Alex has one of those sounds (along with Eddie) that you know it's a Van Halen song right away. They could play a country song and you'd say hey that sounds like Van Halen??? To me that's greatness. If you really listen to Alex play, I think you'd find a lot of little things going on...he's got some strange time keeping also in certain songs. I'm not saying he's the god of all drummers..but if you can have a sound where people go "hey that's gotta be (so and so) than that's what it's all about, that makes you unique.
