    Default Some love for Reverand Al

    I dont know if anyone here knows about this site (I didn't until 5 minutes ago) but here is a site dedicated to AVH.

    http://www.alexvanhalendrums.com/

    You'll probably enjoy it more if you're a drummer, but there are some cool photos and quotes from Al too.

    Enjoy
    If you have nothing nice to say about Eddie Van Halen, you're at the right website. - Me (A few years ago)

    "People take Van Halen much more seriously than we do" - David Lee Roth (1980's)

    "I don't sit on the end of your bed while you're trying to make a living" - David Lee Roth (1988)

    "For some reason people love to complain about everything. The internet has made it easy for people to do that. Shut the fuck up and get a life, or show me how good you can do it."- Edward Van Halen

    "A lot of people ask me which Van Halen singer was better. You can't compare them. It's like asking which guitarist is better. Nobody is better than anybody. Every player is their own person."-Edward Van Halen

    "I do like Eddie Van Halen as a player. He gets it right quite often." -Paul McCartney

    Great site, pics! But I don't seem to remember the "Lips and mouth" set. I thought he had the church organ setup at the US Fest, but I guess I was wrong.

    That is in one of Zloz's picture books. One of my favorite pics of the brothers. I assume it was maybe a soundcheck.

    Hmmmm....I don't remember the "Alex started on xylophone before switching to guitar before switching with his brother and taking up drums" story line...

    I knew. Cant remember where I saw the snare with tape on the head. Live Without A Net? I definitely saw it somewhere and recognized the gaffers tape. My question was and is where is the tape? On the inside of the head or on the outside? Inside I assume. And I don't think he always uses it.
    VH III is Ed's solo album. So everybody who keeps saying they wish he'd do one needs to stfu and listen to III. Then stfu again.

    Some really good photos there. I'd seen most of them before, yet still cool to have them all on one page. Superb details about the construction and evolution of Big Al's kits over the years!

    I'd heard the snare tape method before, yet had forgotten about it. There's an old saying about gaffer tape being a roadie's best friend - I guess it also extends to a certain rockstar stickman...
    Nice find, Dutchie!
