Purple rainbow
tribute to rainbow & deep purple


Meet the band - Alexander

I started drumming at an early age. Playing on a self made kit with drumsticks from my uncle bashing away on KISS records, thinking I was Peter Criss :-). At the age of thirteen I became real serious about drumming and took lessons.
Soon I started playing with bands. By now I've played with several bands, projects and many different musicians.
Also I am a drum teacher at 'Garage Drums' in The Hague.

When the opportunity came to be a part of Purple Rainbow I did not hesitate. It is a possibility for me to express my drumming style to the fullest!

There are many drummers who have influenced me. Here are a few of the most important ones:
• Cozy Powell
• Andre kemp
• John Bonham
• Bobby Rondinelli
• Tommy Aldridge
• Mike Terrana
It always fascinates me when a drummer combines power and finesse!

Ludwig drums
- Paiste cymbals
- DW pedals

Thanks for reading my bio. See you out there. We play it loud!!
