    "Sunday Afternoon in the Park" ..you know, for filler.

    I always liked the drumming in "AFU" and "Loss of Control."

    I always thought Al's drumming really improved when he stopped drinking, OU812 has some incredible drumming on it especially during AFU..I once had a buddy who played drums and he would say that FWYS is one of the hardest songs to learn.....

    I loved how in an interview back in 1991 Eddie talked about how much work he and Alex put into getting Alex's drums sounding right on the F.U.C.K. album. that whole album has awesome drumming.

    pleasure dome (live instrumenta circa 1991), doin time, and thats about all the solo stuff he did on his own. well that is documented and recorded. and did he write pleasure dome or just the drum parts?

    i wonder what his ideas are (were) like or if they recorded any of his originals.
