    Have any of you heard of this guy? Unbelievable. :eek:

    I got my hands on a drum solo video he did when he was 12.....INCREDIBLE!

    Go here to here some sound clips.

    I have an issue of Modern Drummer from 2001 or so...Royster & Dennis Chambers are on the cover.
    Royster is supposed to be the real deal.

    How 'bout Tony Williams? Playing & kickin' ass with Miles, Jackie McLean, etc when he was but 17.

    I saw that video a while ago at a friends house. Insane! Up down on the cymbals and just goin nuts. He must've been hell on mom and dad with the pots and pans when he was just a little guy.

    Oog :eek:
