Alex Van Halen From Modern Drummer Magazine: MD: Isn’t it great that kids can have instant singles downloaded to their iPods? AVH: I thinks it’s destroyed the whole idea of having an album. To have a collection of songs that are somewhat connected, but not. The idea to have a cohesive piece of work to be representative of a certain period of your life, those things that have depth and add meaning to what you do, aren’t there anymore. This is a disposable society and everything is a one-minute wonder. And that’s unfortunate, because the next generation will do th same thing. Who do they have to learn from?
