    I guy I just bought an amp from told me he went to junior high with Alex.

    Later on, as he worked at a music store, servicing drum kits, he would often see Alex as Alex would come in the back of the store and get free, used drum skins from him for the band.

    He also told me that he first heard the band live in 1973 or 1974, at an outdoor party in the valley. He walked past the house and couldn't believe the number of kids who were trying to push their way into the property to check the band out—and that was before VH was even signed!
    He went on saying that they were playing so loud that you could get an earfull, blocks away!

    Then he told me how he bumped into Alex outside of the Comedy Club in L.A. one night, and Alex told him, “Man I don't want to jinx it, but I think we're getting signed pretty soon.”
    Two weeks later as the guy drove on the freeway, listening to KLOS radio, on came Running with the Devil (He doesn't know for sure if it was that song or another).

    The next time he saw alex was sometime after the band was getting radio airplay, and he recognized Alex, driving a spankin' new convertible car. He honked at him, Alex spotted him, and gave him the bird, with a big fat grin from ear to ear.

    Alex never came back to the usic store to mooch on used kick drum skins again, and that guy hasn't seen him since then.

    I though that was a great story, whether it's entirely true or a little embellished in places—we'll never know, but it's a cool story no matter what...

    I saw Alex the other day in the grocery store. His face was on a milk carton.
