    Here's another vid that shows a better view of the drummer/bassist/singer dude in action.

    Pretty darn cool.

    I am told the drummer/bassist is Denny's son.

    Are you sure he isn't a bassist that plays drums and bass?

    The TV show did what I expected - totally ignored the drummer/bass player, who was doing something a whole lot more challenging than the guitarists. IMO the director didn't know a thing about music. One shot of the drummer/bassist, less than 5 seconds, in the whole thing.

    I have no clue how he does that. It's a different kind of mental ability.

    That camera work is not exactly the best either, it's completely out of whack, one of the camera men seems to drive the camera around totally at random without focus (not focus as in a clear picture, but as in consistency), not sure he knows how to film properly, or he is drunk, kind of looks that way, maybe action packed camera work was what he was going for but doesn't fit the context and makes it look like he is drunk.

    Also while it is definitely quite impressive to be able to both play drums, bass and sing at the same time, and I never seen anything like that before, the drummer/bass player/backing vocalist's play is not really anything special separated from the impressive fact that he does it all at once, though not exactly bad either.
