    Yeah, maybe. It's a cool solo, but it sounds a bit like Ed on cruise control. I think there are several solos on that record, chief among them the fluidity and fire of Pleasure Dome, that are better Ed solos.

    "5150" blows it away for me. I hope PD wins, but MAM is a stellar solo as well, and it's off the best Hagar era album, so it is up there for me, too.

    JD - if you had to pick best drum performance from each era (similar to these brackets) what would those two songs be?

    Loss Of Control is my favorite drum track ever, period.

    From the Sam era, I'd say it would be Pleasure Dome.

    Other favs from both eras would be: Outta Love Again, IASR, EWS, On Fire, FYLT, I'm The One, DTNA, Bottoms Up, Romeo Delight, Fools, Mean Street, "Dirty Movies", Sinner's Swing, OFOTD, Hang Em High, Little Guitars, GGB, DDL, HFT, HOP, I'll Wait, Good Enough, "5150", Get Up, AFU, MAM, BAB, Sucker, Aftershock, MOAM, Dream Is Over, Me Wise Magic, CGTSNM, As Is, Chinatown, Beats Workin, HBSD.

    LOL, I may have overdone it, and missed some, but this is just a quick list that took about two minutes to think of.

    I'm not a drummer, but Outta Love Again and Hot For Teacher immediately come to mind for the Dave era.

    I remember when I finally "got" AVH. I took a toke or two (it's always then for some reason ) and had headphones on. Outta Love Again came on and I was totally focused on the drums. He's actually doing some crazy shit on that song.

    Yeah, that's a stellar performance from Al.

    Girl Gone Bad is another one that stands out from that era to me.

    Outta Love Again has some insane drum lines. And I love it!!

    It is TOO good to play! VH II is all about Alex Van Halen and his great playing. Man was on fire back then!!
