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!
How can I support you?
Some people think I'm a rich girl because I have many views on YouTube and a lot of subscribers, but unfortunately, most of those views refer to my drum covers of copyrighted material. The advert money generated by those views gets straight to the copyright holders, so my YouTube income is quite small. On the other hand, I'm often asked 'How can I support you?' and the simple answer is: You can support me by commenting on my videos, sharing my videos or buying my products. If you are kind of rich, you can also support me financially:
