Alive is one of Pearl Jams most loved songs and it was released on their first album ‘Ten’ back in 1991. In the video I credited Matt Chamberlain for creating the drum part but meanwhile I have been told that it was actually Dave Krusen, who had joined the band in 1990 and left straight after recording their debut album ‘Ten’. For me (not being ‘alive’ until 1999) this drum track is quite typical for 90’s grunge. The drum part is a lot more tricky than 80s stadium rock kind of simplified grooves, the set sounds more acoustic, more dynamic and less ‘produced’. I like it!
Thanks a lot to almost 10,000 people who took part in my what-to-cover-next polls between Oct 2016 and March 2017. The covers you find on my YouTube Channel were voted by you. Unfortunately, 2 of the most requested songs are blocked on YouTube: Go Your Own Way (Fleetwood Mac) and Come Together (The Beatles). So I decided to stop the polls for a while (it's frustrating that I can not guarantee that you will actually see the best voted covers). However, still coming up: Gimme All Your Loving (ZZ-Top), In The Still Of The Night (Whitesnake) and Roundabout (YES). Apart from more covers I'm also going to provide more original songs and more collaborations with young singers and players, so please hold the line!
Do you enjoy my drum covers?
