He has grown on me, though. He some some great handspeed, and great groove. He just lacks the double-bass integration that herb has, taking the hard edge off.
It's really a feeling I hate, everytime I play and i'm trying to be a bit in a Herb style I find myself sounding more like Brain..........still far from him but closer than Herb!!! No one can imitate the almighty Alexander. Brain's has a much "logical" and natural/instinctive playing.
I've learned to appreciate Brain's style but with other records than Primus (except "shake hands with beef", that one really got me).
