    Default Alex jealous of Ed?

    I've always wondered if Alex has ever expressed any jealousy of Ed. I mean, Al is a good drummer and all, but obviously has never received the attention and accolades that his younger brother has. I've certainly never heard him be referred to as one of the greatest drummers in rock history. But then again, whadda I know?

    In the few interviews I've seen or heard, that's never been brought up.

    I think he's happy for Ed and content in being known as a good rock dummer than one of the best. Fame - pressure = better than falling under the pressure of being held at godlike status for 20 years until you finally callapse.

    But back when they started, and everyone was talking about Ed as a revelation?

    Alex isn't stupid, I think he knew what he had as a brother and a talent.He just went with it and apparantly it worked out.

    I think Alex holds his own in his own right.

    If Alex was a guitarist too then he might possibly be jealous, but as he plays a totally different instrument then he isn't, he loves his drums so it is all good.
