    FZ's Black Page or Mo and Herbs Vacation falls into the category of "insanely difficult".

    I agree with you 100%. I only said that because I thought this discussion was about validating that AVH was a top tier drummer.

    He is a great drummer. Again, he has a sense of groove. Listen to the song “ beautiful girls” on van halen 2.
    They might have an isolated drum track on you tube.

    He's really grown over the years, IMHO. I saw him on their first tour back in the late '70s and wasn't impressed. Now days, some of his stuff is impossible for me to figure out let alone try to play. Good on him! I enjoy his offerings immensely.

    No such thing as underated drummers. They are all good no matter famous or not.

    I couldn't think of a better first post! With respect to individual likes and dislikes, each drummer has something to unique to bring to the table and I appreciate an optimist's mindset focusing on loving rather than judging. Kudos to you Gee Pou and welcome to our drum family here at Drum Chat!

    It depends on how you want to define "underrated". Danny Seraphine seldom gets mentioned, neither does Pick Withers.

    At the same time, Ringo gets mentioned in every poll I've seen. Ringo is a good guy but a pathetic drummer.

    He and I have been playing about the same amount of time, but it would take me 15 seconds to lose him.
