    I'll be sure to let the head office know he's due for a raise.

    Yeah i was worried about a guy of Alex's age being able to perform like he used to but he seemed fine. Its hard physical work under hot lights so to be able to that at 58? shows he's very fit.

    Great seeing him play on the basic kit too.

    Everyone pretty much knows AVH will deliver both live and on the album. There's really no doubt about that. Reliable Dutch working class ethic, as Sammy would say.

    Alex gave another top-notch performance like he always does. I don't think I've ever seen him have an off-night.

    Al is just a monster drummer....whether he's playing a basic 4 piece kit or a enormous set up...he always kills it. He's one of my favorite drummers ever.

    Alex has been the one constant over the years during the ups and downs. masterful drummer and you know its him when you hear him play. He did great on that small kit. Its a trip that him and his nephew are the rhythm section it just blows my mind. Very cool !

    Even if Al mic'd up a Fisher Price kit, he'd still sound huge.

    Actually, I kind of like the small basic set-up. He still nailed Hot for Teacher pretty awesome. It's a bit of a change from the "poser"-set-up he usually uses. Don't get me wrong - he is probably one of the few drummers who actually utilizes the entire XXL "poser-set-up" (similar to Mike Portney, Nick D'Virgilio or Mike Mangini just to name some that jump to my mind right now), but it still always had too much show-effect than Alex actually really needing it to nail the songs the way he does.

    Alex is the master blaster! I thought he used a double bass pedal on HFT. I'll look at it again.

    He was using a double kick pedal at the Cafe Wah gig.
