    Default New Photo Of ALEX VAN HALEN Emerges Online

    BLABBERMOUTH.NET

    August 18, 2022

    A new photo of VAN HALEN drummer Alex Van Halen has emerged online.

    On Wednesday (August 17), Josh Freese, a top Los Angeles session musician who has played with DEVO, THE VANDALS, NINE INCH NAILS, A PERFECT CIRCLE and GUNS N' ROSES, took to his Instagram to share a picture of him with Alex, and he included the following message:

    "Epic Epic Epic! Just ran into Alex Van Halen (my first drum hero) at LAX and talked for 30 mins. Haven't seen him in years. It was so great to reconnect. Crazy, I was with @wolfvanhalen yesterday and was asking him how his uncle's been doing. Bizarre! Not pictured is @markguiliana who I ran into 5 mins later. Drummer craziness at LAX this afternoon. #alexvanhalen #markguiliana #drummers #vanhalen".


    Last year, former VAN HALEN singer Sammy Hagar said that he had tried to reach out to Alex after Eddie Van Halen's death but that he was rebuffed.

    "Alex just seems to he just doesn't want to communicate with anybody," Sammy told Ultimate Classic Rock.

    "You know, Mike Anthony has reached out, and I reached out many times. I don't know. I'm sure he's still in pain from the whole thing, but I'm not dogging him.

    I'm just saying he just really doesn't want to be friends or doesn't want to communicate. I don't know why, but we've still got the rest of our lives to work this out."

    When Alex turned 68 in May 2021, he commemorated the occasion by sharing the following statement:

    "First birthday without you, Ed. The view from my drum set will never be the same. VH forever!"

    Eddie passed away in October 2020 at St. John's Hospital in Santa Monica, California. Alex was by his side, as was Eddie's son, Wolfgang. The axeman died from complications due to cancer, his son confirmed.

    Eddie's final Instagram post was a tribute to Alex. On May 8, 2020, the guitarist shared a black-and-white photo of him and his brother to his followers to wish the drummer a happy birthday.

    He captioned the picture: "Happy Birthday Al!! Love Ya!! #vanhalen #alexvanhalen #birthday #may #drummer #musician #musicians #family #rock #classicrock #rockband #love".

    Alex and Eddie Van Halen formed a band called MAMMOTH in Pasadena, California in 1972, then renamed it VAN HALEN when singer David Lee Roth joined the group and, later, Anthony.

    Earlier this year, it was confirmed that Alex had been in talks with Roth and guitarist Joe Satriani to put on a special show in honor of Eddie. However, Wolfgang later said that it was "in such an early stage that it never even got off the ground."

    Beauty is life when life unveils
    her holy face.

    But you are life and you
    are the veil.

    Beauty is eternity gazing at itself
    in a mirror.

    But you are eternity
    and you are the mirror.

    Seems to be the Al "uniform". Beige cap, puffer jacket and shades. These guys are multimillionaires and wear the same shit in every photo.

    I'd probably be less likely to recognize him without the shades than with, if that's what he's going for

    It's basically not news. Alex VH, when he needs to go out of state, goes to the airport. End of story.

    I remember when some poster on here in the pre smartphone days worked at some grocery store and would see him so he comes out to eat too.

    For what's it worth, I think that was part of the quote from Josh Freese.

    Haha, before I clicked on it I was imagining what the picture looked like. It was pretty much that, except I thought he'd be sitting in a car.

    I think the dude who posted talked with Al for 30 mn. He was then informed that unbeknownst to him, a microchip with a small nuke had been placed under the skin of his neck, and said bomb would immediately detonate if he were to reveal what was said in the conversation.

    Seriously.

    Even if it's just mundane. That's 30 minutes . Unless all you do when you meet famous people is nerd fanboy shit then nah. I like stupid stuff like "what's your favorite fast food place" or "have you seen the new Elvis movie".

    Blabbermouth never said that. The guy who posted the picture on IG did.

    And who cares? Itís an article about a picture of AVH. What else do you really need?

    Well you're in luck, I heard a committee has just been appointed to decide if this idea could be discussed in the near future (5 to 10 years).
