Alex Van Halen Legends Book

Postby Terry Branam » Tue Dec 15, 2020 12:06 pm

Hey everyone,

I am very proud to announce that Modern Drummer has just released a book from their "Legends" series on Alex Van Halen that I was asked to work on. I did about 42 pages of transcriptions that span their entire catalog. Very proud! Any VH fan would dig this for sure!

Check it out here:

Cheers!

Sad to think that he won't be playing/recording anymore.

I guess so, yeah. Really pretty sad. I lost a brother too a couple of years ago, so I can sort of relate.

Man the roto-toms in the jump video were so iconic to me at that age. The drumming on all of 1984 was very formative for me. Anytime I hear Girl Gone Bad I turn into an air-guitaring air-drumming fool.
