    Just picked this up in the DB Off Topic forum (yes, they have one as well!). Apparently this vid is about 10 years old, but it's well worth a look if you haven't seen it.


    Apologies if it's been posted here before and you've all watched it.
  2. Damn, he's really good. I'd like to hear him play with a band.

    DAMN... I wish he was in my band....
  6. I saw this clip on a dvd playing in the drum room at Guitar Center. All I could do is laugh... the amount of talent that kid has is staggering.

    Pff, he's no Neil Peart.


    My god that kid is good. It's weird to see a prodigy before it develops. I'll bet any amount of money that he is going to be a famous drummer.

    There's just a few regulars that basically come up weekly. This and the one armed bassist video are right up there. Retractable frets, too. Let's think of every one of those videos that has been posted at least 5 times. Brainstorm!

    Yeah, although I haven't seen any videos of him since.:eyebrow: I've been to his webite; he seems to be doing fine.

    Okay, so it's been posted before... I said I was sorry. AND said I knew it was old. Seems strange to me to make a redundant post about how this was a redundant post...

    Vorago - 24 times?? Come on, man, I've told you a million times not to exaggerate! :D

    Obviously some of us hadn't seen it - I guess the reason I hadn't was I only got broadband last month. I've seen the retractable frets one though. But not checked out the one handed bass player yet.

    BTW, Vorago... we have a pub quiz question that regularly gets trotted out over here... "Name 3 famous Belgians". Who would get your vote? ;) Just curious is all, want to hear it from someone who knows.

    Steven would kick his ass with a slow motion kick.
  17. Does anyone know if this kid is actually in a band? I know it's Tony Royster Jr. I've seen the video like 10,000 times and I have it on my PC, but this is the only thing I've ever seen of him.
