    Default AVH's best song....??

    This is probably a stupid question but I know nothing about drums or any of that stuff........anyway, what do you people think is Alex Van Halen's hardest/most technical song or whatever, to play? I'm just curious. Hope this makes sense!

    I would probably think that the intro to Hot For Teacher as well as the off timing on Finish What You Started would probably rank high on the technical scale.

    Outta Love Again has some nice underrated drumming.

    Hot For Teacher would rank first on my list,Girl Gone Bad and House of Pain are very good too.He does some tough stuff on pleasure dome as well.

    I don't know about stuff that's tough to do, but his drumming got better with age it seemed, or maybe because of sobriety. He certainly sounded at his best, imo from 88-98. Many of the songs off of "Balance" are proof of this. He just stopped being sloppy at once at some point
    Wolfie is not Mike, but he's more than ok.
    Mike is gone, but not forgotten. They played some amazing shows from 2007-2015; some people are in denial about it.

    I've read (don't remember where) that his stuff off OU812 was his best overall.

    I'm not a drummer; just a fan, but I've always thought Pleasuredome was way different and sounded kind of technically hard.

    Other than that:

    Outta Love Again
    Light Up The Sky
    Girl Gone Bad
    A.F.U.

    ...come to mind as standouts.
    ...AND ON THE SEVENTH DAY, GOD CREATED VAN HALEN

    I"ve always thought that the tone he had in Right Now was damn good, it fit the song. Right before the solo those toms fills were great, same with I'll Wait before that guitar solo Al's tom fills have a good tone. So you want what is Al's best work or best tone? I like for tone Right Now. For work probably Get Up or Pleasure Dome.
