Re: Alan White
I've been a fan of Alan White for the last 25 plus years. Seen him in concert twice and he's great at using his technique, but in a musical fashion that supports the song, instead of standing out like a sore thumb.
In the early 90's I drove from Cincinnati, OH to Chicago, IL with the drummer in a band I was in at the time to see Zildjian Cymbal Days. They had a group of maybe 7 or 8 famous drummers who endorsed their cymbals giving demonstrations. Alan White was there and he was excellent. I remember thinking how cool it was that he was playing his Ludwigs when everyone else there were playing their Sonors, Tamas and other new school sets. Remember, this was the early 90's before Ludwig started coming back. Very, very underrated drummer.
