Motorhead songs aren't 'overly complicated', just more difficult than they sound. What sounds like a simple rhythm or gallop is constantly changing, as Lemmy hits it a little different each time. Whether by accident or design it makes learning the tunes more of an organic feeling out process.
Unfortunately I do tend to clump Alter Bridge into the generic hard rock/metal category. In that, within the vast lexicon of styles, theirs is one that does little to distinguish itself from the pack. Metal/Rock is littered with bands/artist who were technically proficient yet unable to find that 'it' factor.
Example: Steve Vai, is more skilled technically than anyone in Motorhead, yet I'd most likely choose Lemmy and crew over Vai every time if given a choice of the two. More proficient does not necessarily equate to being 'better' music.
Kudos, you've finally got some meat to your argument. I look forward to further discussion, but I gotta run.
Agreed Steve Vai is boring as fuck.
