Alex Who Halen?

Alex Van Halen
Alex Van Halen is one of the most over rated drummers of all time. Anything he did with any credibility was dubbed over and over to get the sound. Take the beginning of Hot For Teacher as an example.
Michle Anthony was the best part of that band, and Sammy of course. I love Neil Peart he is one of my heroes, but he isn't the number one rock drummer. Have you listened to Mike Portnoy. The man is an animal.
Tommy Aldridge another monster rock drummer. Neil Peart played with one big band. Some of these other drummers played with several groups giving them amazing status in my book.
