    Default filling in KING AlEX VH shoes..not so easy

    ...I really wish there were clips of the first album with a hd camera on Alex..Im a guitar player so you know where my eyes are glued..but really what Alex brings to the table is amazing..the different textures this guy brings and makes it look so easy until you see another drummer attempt it..wow Alex makes it 3d

    ..In 1984 Van Halen Jumped Panama
    Topped Jimmy & Dropped Dead Legs
    ..Ill Wait in this House of Pain with the
    Girl Gone Bad while I am really Hot for Teacher..


    ..Think it was easy ?..you stare at an album
    Cover that long..

    Most underrated drummer in the biz, but I don't think it bothers him one bit.

    He's a big part of the sound of VH. Irreplaceable. People think I'm an Eddie fan because I play guitar. I'm more of an Alex fan. Love them both, but the drums are what I usually focus on when listening.

    sorry I'm confused here, you're posting a vid of a drummer who is 7 years old to show how difficult it is for drummers to perfect Al's style? (plus the kid does a pretty good job imo)

    ..no im not knocking the kid he is great !!..what im saying I never seen alex in action on these tunes..when you see another person do it you can see the the effort it takes to keep up with Alex..maybe its the massive kits al was using blocking the most important part of the vh sound

    As big a part of the sound of Van Halen as his younger brother … seriously overlooked as a drummer, but I think thats mainly because he does not promote himself … But next to Bonzo as the greatest rock drummer of all time … and yes I am including Keith Moon and Ginger Baker ….

    Alex and Bonzo 1 and 1a in my book …
