Default Re: Alex Van Halen

alex is a great drummer for the same reason ringo was, or charlie watts......he plays what works well within the context of the song......as opposed to walking all over it.....he was a huge influence on my playing, and is still one of my favorite drummers today......

someone had mentioned that he thought the "1984" kit was rad.....check out the kit he used for the" 0U812" tour......now that kit was sick.....6 kick drums, a north kit, an electronic kit and a conventional ( well, for alex, hahahaha) kit......that set-up was quite the mofo.....

i've seen van halen 5 or 6 times, and he has yet to disappoint me with his performance.....

my 2 cents........
