I thought I was the only one!
I like Vh with Dave, but I OWN the albums with Sammy.
Balance was, IMHO, the pinnacle of their careers.

Pre-internet, I knew when VH had a new album because as soon as the song came on the radio, one snare hit, it must be VH.
Alex is such a unique drummer. You can listen to a VH song, and think, OK, he's just bashing away, then you sit down and trying to play it, and it's like whoah, it's not that straight forward.
