    Guys,

    Check it out. My brother just informed me that the drum solo "Doin' Time" on the Balance album is a complete rip off of Vinnie Vincent Invasion's 1988's All Systems Go song called "The Meltdown" I downloaded the mp3 and sure enough it is true. It also seems to be the drum solo that Alex performed on the Balance tour. If anyone is interested in listening to it, I can email it to you guys and let you be the judge.

    Well I don't know anything about "The Meltdown" but I do know that "Doin' Time" and the drum solo on the Balance tour are NOT the same.

    Doin Time and the Drum solo are definitely not the same, but what I thought was strange was that Bobby Rock's drum instrumental on The Meltdown is both Doing Time and AVH's drum solo from the Balance album and tour.

    I had a few friends (Big Time Halen Fans) listen to it just a few minutes ago and they totally think that AVH ripped this one off.

    Let's see... Balance came out in 1995 and All Systems Go came out in 1988.
