Re: Alex Van Halen
Alex Van Halen is one of the ten greatest rock drummers of all-time in my opinion. One of the things I love most about his playing is his use of his cymbals. He wasn't the first to do it, but that beat from Hot For Teacher is so cool because of his ride cymbals.
Alex is about as solid as they get too. Let's face it, have you ever seen him mess up? No. He compliments his brother's playing very well and makes the band sound better overall. When you don't have to worry so much about singing, you can let loose a lot more and it shows with him...Great drummer...great feel...great sound...great, period!!!
