Re: Was Alex Van Halen the best "ever"?

Discussion in 'rec.music.percussion' started by Jeff Neberwall, Aug 4, 2003.

  1. What was Alex Van Halen the best ever at?

    Sucking cock?
    Giving deep tissue massages to his lovely brother?
    Using his drumstick for self-anal-pleasure?
    Giving the worst EVER excuse for cancelling a European tour?
    At telling his lil bro what to do?
    At making Sammy Hagar NOT look so ugly?
    At giving the worst ever interview?
    At giving idle threats - "If you ever say one more thing about my
    family, then I'll kick your fuckin' ass."
    At giving false predictions - "VH3 will go platinum."

    Just what the fuck is this scumbag good at?

    "A true ambassador of rock" - ROTFL!

    Like Sammy said - Al just sits at home all day on the internet and
    smokes cigarettes! LOL at the paraplegic!

  2. Oh, forget these other Alex VH 'gems':

    "We had a toothache for 11 years and we had it removed and replaced with
    a gold cap."

    "We used to be a Volkswagen and now we're a Porsche."

    "Tonight...is...about...me...man...not...your...fuckin...hip?" - (We
    heard Ed tell his lie right the first time, no need for you to
    overdramatize it, dickhead)

  3. And people say RMMP has troll problems =P

    --
    Kevin Buffardi
    "Rockstars -- is there
    anything they don't know?"
    -Homer Simpson
  4. Although I'm a long time VH fan, I have to agree with Jeff somewhat. I
    pretty much saw Alex as the Yoko Ono of Van Halen. He seemed more about
    keeping shit stirred up in Eddie's mind than being remotely like a so called
    "Ambassador of Rock". Now "Shit Stirrer of Rock" might be a more appropriate
    title.
    After hearing many fine drummers of that era, I would hardly call AVH a
    "Legend" or even influential. He was truly mediocre rock and roll drummer at
    best.
    It's too bad Ed could never do much without Alex. It was like he was a "boat
    anchor" around EVH's neck.
    I mean come on, If the guitar player in the band was not "King" Edward Van
    Halen do you think anyone would know who the fuck Alex was???

    IMHO,
    -Chris

    Jeff,
    If this is your real name, why don't you just say what it is that you don't
    like about his playing instead of turning this into some pathetic gay bashing
    bullshit? Even is Alex was gay, who the fuck cares? You are just another cunt.
    Post your real name and E mail if you are going to talk shit.

    Holy crap, whoever did that site deserves an IMMENSE reward! I laugh every
