    Puleaz! No contest. AVH kicks tommy's skin all over the place. Tommy can be a decent drummer some of the time but Alex is awesome all of the time.

    Alex is my personal favorite, no doubt about it.

    Tommy Lee is killer, the guy can really play the drums. Man is he good.

    Another drummer that is killer is Neil Peart from Rush. There is a man who can really beat em too.

    Those are my top 3 favs. when it comes to drums.

    AVH guys, no question in my mind. Tommy is a great drummer and I'm not taking anything away from him. To me Big Al has contributed more to the instrument than Tommy.

    I LOVE Tommy Lee's drumming - its just so heavy and full of creativity - it just kicks ya in the ass - but no one is as good as Alex in my book. I dont mean technically either, their are plenty of guys more technical than Al...BUT the total package, sound, songs, kits, attitude, technique, POWER - ALEX IS THE BEST!!

    AVH in every way...However, I still believe the ultimate rock rythym king to be Peart...Alex is unmatched on the double bass, by Neil is the best all around...I think he's probably the best rock drummer ever...He's the EVH of the drums...

    Think about it...Stewart Copeland, Bonzo, Ginger Baker, Pete Best [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img] ....Who else comes close to Peart BESIDES Alex??

    Alex Van Halen is unarguably one of the five best drummers in Rock history. Although Tommy Lee can hold his own, he is not in the same league as:

    John Bonham
    Keith Moon
    Alex Van Halen
    Ginger Baker
    Neil Peart

    To me, these two have just slightly different styles, but I guess for overall talent, I give the nod to Al. For overall showmanship, I give the nod to Mr. Lee...the spinning drum kit and levitating cage (I know everyone else has had this too). I need to revisit some of the older VHS of big Al in action before the jury decides 100% though.

    I saw a vid of Al in the studio warming up and he was just jamming something rapid fire and it was all with his left hand! [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img] The man is a talent!!

    Marrying women the most-Alex

    Punching women the most-Tommy

    Actually, Tommy's been married at least 3 times himself, so that could be a tie. And I'm strongly opposed to violence against women, so let's just chalk this post up to "one that got away". [img]smilies/redface.gif[/img] [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]
