Yes--the more I listen to older AC/DC and the placement of a crash with a snare hit, it seems that Lars appreciated that approach more as the albums progressed. As someone else mentioned, a crash on the '2' is definitely something I picked up from my early years of Lars fandom. Back then for...
I like lists of this kind--sure it will never be the same as my list (if I had one), but it's interesting to see what the 'world as a whole' thinks about a topic (casually) that I have a lot of interest in.

I learned from a combination of listening to albums (cassettes, that was my era), several casual lessons from my dad, and a handful of teachers over the years. The rest is books, youtube, and this place!
Agreed. Some of the pictures make it pretty obvious some things turning up in, say, a 'Sabian HH' search are not in fact that make and model. I got lucky--the pics were decent and the cymbals were in good shape.
