Van Halen II: The discussion

To say about Van Halen II that the title says it all, would be an understatement. But let’s break it down, anyway, in case a juggalo is reading this.

The ‘Van Halen’ in ‘Van Halen II’ means it’s an album by the band Van Halen. ‘II’ stands for ‘second,’ because it’s their sophomore effort. Mr. Wikipedia, at your service.

Leaving bad jokes and sarcasm aside, there’s a podcast out there called “Mars Attacks,” and they got a bunch of musicians together to talk about this album. What musicians? Well, people like Charlie Benante, Glen Drover and Gene Hoglan, and others…

Gene Hoglan speaks

Gene Hoglan

It comes to us as a shocking revelation that Gene Hoglan, one of best heavy (metal) drummers out there, can not only speak (we thought the evolution upgraded his arms and legs and didn’t bother with the rest), but he also found the time to do so. We can’t figure out how he pulled the latter of, because he seems to be playing with some band at any given moment of his life.

In his message posted on MySpace, he speaks on various things, his ongoing touring cycle with Fear Factory, hanging out with Metallica, meeting James Hetfield, and of course… food. Read it here.

He also made the cover of Modern Drummer magazine, which you can see after the jump.
