    Oh ya he looks so "Bad Ass" in that pic. Must be the neckbrace that makes him look so convincingly cool.

    Yes it's amazing how he can play better than most drummers even with a neck brace on. Don't see too many other drummers if any that have dedication like that. Most of them are candy asses. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]
    And beyond the horizon.... a sound was heard.

    Alex is the best in my opinion. Others are right up there but he is king of the hill. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]
