    I've seen that one before. But it's great every time. He comes up with some seriously catchy beats in there.

  5. Really excellent. I *would* however like to see how he'd work in a group context. Can he hang? He prolly has already, and I appreciate that the kid is (or was) 12 at the time... I just don't know of him and I'm curious.

    He was a monster player then. He must be Godzilla by now.

    I bet he can hold down any AC/DC tune.

    I know a 12 year old drummer who is, believe it or not, better than that. And he works perfectly in a group situation.

    If I had a nickle for every forum I've been on when someone posts that video and says how good he be when he gets older...

    I understand most people don't know how old the video is and that he's 20 or 21 now, but it's still getting annoying :)

    very cool, there is a drummer I used to play in a band with who was also extremely talented at a young age. He's a blast to play with, but he is a really hyper guy, and when you just get him to slow down and groove it's awesome, but he just loves playing crazy prog rock stuff (which I'm not into at all). Nonethe less the kid in the video you posted is talented, and I'd love to see him in a band context.
  12. Yup hes Tony Royster Jr. hes 20 now though.

    He should lay off the double bass a bit.
  14. Um, ok.
