Hey, Arejay! I caught you guys live for the first time last week in Manchester (incidentally, how did you enjoy Satan's Hollow??) and it was the most electrifying event of my life - well worth both the investment in a ticket and the wait for the date to come around. I've never seen anyone play quite like you do - kind of how I imagine a cross between Animal and Keith Moon would play!

I hope you enjoyed Mancunian hospitality during your brief stopover and hope to see you, Lzzy, Joe and Josh again soon!

Peace,

Mart

Is it true that you're a huge Cliff Burton fan? Cliff Burton is my second favorite person of all time (behind only Jimi Hendrix); and I wish that I could've been Cliff Burton. You're my favorite living drummer; and one of the coolest people ever. I wish that I could have had a brother like you.

hope, you will come out this time for a beer or something... i don't compass to book you for a meet and greet and then have nothing to talk about... think you're cool enough, to have a beer together without beeing paid for that. :)

i would love to get an invitation to join the soundcheck and maybe have a little chat about that.

cu, alex

Hey Arejay, it was awesome catching up with you and Josh in L.A. back in September (I wish I was back there now rather than dealing with this lovely NE Ohio weather)! I just wanted to drop you a line wishing you, Lzzy, and my girl Beth (best merch girl and coolest mom of all time!) a safe and happy Thanksgiving. Keep on keeping on, bro!

MANCHESTER ARENA - 22/10/2013 - YOU GUYS ROCKED! Loved the drum solo, you are officially certifiable my friend. Booking tickets for your return in April 2014. Can't wait. One slight complaint though (sorry)...I would have preferred another song from the band and you to save the solo when you can do a full headline set next year. Sorry!
Bring on Manchester Academy 2014!

Hey AreJay...I am a 55 year old drummer that thinks you are John Bonham resurrected from drummer heaven! Actually I have tons of favorite bands and I have just recently become a huge Halestorm fan making you guys No.1 on my list. I have everything available by Halestorm either in cd/dvd/mp3 format and I want more! Bottom line is you are a natural player with a personality that puts you over the top. Fearless is a great word for you and your bandmates. I always wanted to be a drummer like you. Congrats on the award, you deserve all of them for hard work and the dedication you give to all of us around the world! Rock on Halestorm!
I will be waiting for you to come a city near St. Paul soon. Love you guys!

Arejay,

By far the best drumming performance I have ever seen. Dude, you are amazing and awesome to watch. Your performance was the plus in a 10+ show. Rock on brother.

Man, you were amazing on the drums last night in SF. Thanks for giving it all. My daughter, Sydney and I hope you and the rest of the band like our poster. We love you guys, and just wanted to say thank you for sharing Halestorm's awesome music and a big congratulations on your grammy! Woo hoo. Stay true to what makes Halestorm such a brilliant stand out in today's "cookie cutter" rock scene. Alison

Happy B-day to an awesome freak!!! Can't wait to see you guys in SF in a couple weeks!

Happy birthday! You have the same birthday as Brook Lopez of the Brooklyn Nets. He's 25 so he's about your age, I think.

My 3year old son was watching a video clip from a concert and was watching you play the drums and he has his own little drum set and he loves when i play your guys album cause he will go and sit and his drums and rock out!!!

Hey guys (and gal obviously)! Thanks you sooo, soooo much for existing and just generally making the world of music a better place! Was privileged enough to see you guys twice on your UK tour and i’ll be honest right now and say my custom designed halestorm t shirt which you all signed in the Electric Ballroom is easily my proudest possession (narrowly beating my Nintendo 64 :P) Got to see you guys last night too! (i was the one holding the sign saying “please give shout out to left nut which couldn’t be here due to cancer”) Sadly no one did a shout out and i had to leave before Bullet came on as i bust open the stitches from my surgery in the mosh pit but still.... totally worth it! May Arejay never stop being the craziest mofo ever to sit behind a drum kit! May Josh never stop rocking that bass! May Joe never stop shredding crazy licks! May Lzzy never stop being the hardest rocking high heeled wearing lass ever to pick up a guitar! May you never stop touring! May you never stop rocking! AND MAY YOU NEVER EVER CHANGE!!!

Hey
this sounds a bit daft but the first time I saw you was at taste of chaos in Manchester in 2010 i think. I've literally adored halestorm ever since you are my favourite band, which is weird because i've never specifically had one favourite band before.
But when you where at taste of chaos we managed to get you to sign my ribs! I was planning on getting it tattooed on but I couldn't get in at a studio at the time and I didnt just want any old tattooist to do it because tattoos are a HUGE part of my life. But even two years on I still really do regret not having your signiature tattooed on me! If its possible could I have a signiature that I could add to my nice little collection of tattoos? It will probably most likely go alongside some halestorm lyrics but I'm still stuck on which I like the most. :) x

Hi Arejay!
I saw you at the Electric Factory On December 27th and you were freaking amazing. I love the band and especially you. I have an important question to ask you.
WILL YOU MARRY ME??

racheldt0120's picture

I saw you at the Electric Factory last week. You jumped into the crowd and it was the coolest thing ever. I hope I become an awesome drummer like you!

My husband and I saw you play in Royal Oak MI last weekend, what a phenomenal show, you'll be flattered to know you're my hubby's new "man crush"...not anything gay, he'd just like to be you! HA!

LoriSlisher's picture

We were at your show Friday at Club Fever in South Bend, IN. You are by far my favorite drummer of all time. Buddy Rich, Neal Peart, you. Your showmanship is outstanding, and you have extraordinary talent. Bravo.

Mr. Hale, you're my favorite drummer of the century!

I loved the drum solo last night at Debaser in Stockholm,Sewden October 17. It was just so amazing, I can't waite untill you get back here to Sweden!!! And it was so great to get to talk to you after the show!!! :D

Hey AreJay, just wanted to let you know how AWESOME your solo was at the Upstate Concert Hall on August 31st. You totally "rocked" and that may even be an understatement! :D

lovetodance62382's picture

Arejay, I am new to the whole Halestorm concerts since the Carnival of Madness rain concert August 29th, but I loved the show, even though we got drenched and chilled that night. I think that it is really awesome that you and your sister are in a band together. That means alot for family love and togetherness. I really do hope to see you guys again in the rescheduling concert. I missed out buying your band's cd that night because we got kicked out soo quickly. I also know now I wanted to get one of your band's tshirts but missed on telling my mother who was there with me to get it for me. Can't wait to see you guys soon!!!! You totally rocked it out for that concert!!!! You blew my body and mind away!!! I also was very upset that night because you tried to throw me two of your drumsticks and it missed me or went into the guy next to me's arms. I couldn't get them. I will try next time I promise, it just might be a little hard for my height 4'10''.

Arejay, wow, I have been a drummer for over 40 years and am damn good at it, lemme tell you, your cuts and drive on the bass is awesome. Some of the best new talent in percussion I have heard in YEARS!
