Nice to see the GREAT Alex Van Halen get recognized!
Modern Drummer has put together a special book that is entirely devoted to Alex Van Halen!
Modern Drummer Legends: Alex Van Halen is the second installment in the ‘Modern Drummer Legends’ series, and is the one and only Alex Van Halen drum book!
Includes Alex’s 1983, 1993, and 2008 Modern Drummer cover stories. Transcriptions of classic Van Halen tracks, beats, and fills. A survey of the evolution of his famous live drum kits. A deep dive into his unique snare sound + an exclusive brand-new 2020 MD interview! And lots of photos.
“Given that the constant throughout all of Van Halen’s achievements – and what guaranteed their stature not only on the charts but in popular culture- was the bloodline of the Van Halen brotherhood, this book can be viewed not only as a tribute to one of the greatest rock drummers of all time, but to the glorious music that Alex and Eddie created together.”
The 112-page book is being released this week. It was put together (and the new interview was done) before Ed’s passing.
