Arejay Hale bio

taken from the October 2004 archive of Halestorm's official web site

Arejay was born in Philadelphia. By the age of 5, when he received his first set of professional drums, he knew immediately what he wanted to do. His biggest influence was his father, a significant bassist in his day, and taught him a lot about music, and the music business. His other influences range from John Bonham, and Ringo Starr, to Shannon Larkin (Godsmack), Spag (Mudvayne), Jose Pastillas (Incubus), ?uestlove (The Roots), Terry Bozzio, Chuck Treece, and Morgan Rose from Sevendust. But there are too many influences, in his huge “Melting Pot”, to list all of them.

He maintains a professional, down to earth personality off stage, due to experience, and proper education. However, his aggressive playing ability and showmanship onstage, creates an influential technique that musicians, and non-musicians can appreciate, and remember for years to come.
