Originally this man was intended to be a guitarist. That’s Alex Van Halen who took guitar lessons, while Eddie pounded the drums. Once Eddie tried to pick up a guitar and as a result he decided to switch to this instrument. Alex had no choice, but to pick up brother’s drums.
His father is a very talented jazz musician. He was a jazz saxophonist and clarinetist who sent both his sons to learn to play the piano.
Alex always came up with all sorts of crazy things for concert performances. Alex Van Halen is one of the most prominent drummers in rock. He likes to work on its backlit drum kit and even set fire to drum sticks, speaking on stage.
His drum machines are constantly becoming bigger, and Eddie finally complained that he could no longer see his brother during concerts.
Van Halen arranges crazy backstages. Former Van Halen singer Sammy Hagar in his excellent book described the copious amounts of beer, which Alex used to drink on tour and in the studio.
After drinking, the drummer got up to all sorts of tricks, such as an attempt to jump over a broom, holding his handling. Just imagine it! Of course, this could lead to injuries, and so, of course, happened.
Why is he wearing a retainer for neck on the road? After the injury of three vertebrae in his neck Alex wears a giant lock for the neck.
Alex is surprisingly loyal to his family. He never records without his brother. Eddie recorded with Michael Jackson, Brian May and some other friends.
Van Halen is on the point of becoming the family band. Now, when his nephew Wolfgang Van Halen plays bass in Van Halen, all that the band really needs – one of the two Alex’s sons – Eric Malcolm – is able to stand at the microphone.
David Lee Roth should be aware.
