VAN HALEN Drummer Celebrates His 59th Birthday!

Alexander Arthur Van Halen was born on May 8th, 1953, in Amsterdam, Netherlands. He was raised in Nijmegan, a town just otside Amsterdam. Luckily for millions of Rock fans, the Van Halens moved to the U.S. when Alex was about 9.

While not much is known about the man himself, fans can deduce all they really need to know by listening to his music.
