    You zipped up a shortcut to the file. Not the file itself. Besides, it´s probably to big to attach here.


    P.s. If this is the drumsolo with Tony Royster Jr. It´s already been posted here somewhere on the Talkbass forums :)

    usaully i don't have a problem doing this.
    and ya it is.
  6. i saw him at the modern drummer festival a while back. the kid is just tremendous. i was really impressed with his maturity.

    of course, it helps to be in the company of people like dennis chambers and billy cobham. the kid has been schooled by the best.

    btw, he's 14 now.


    p.s. there's another child drum prodigy now named ilan rodriquez[?], i believe. saw him, too. he's a chops meister. it's really depressing watching these kids when you've been busting your butt trying to get stuff out on the kit for years, and they just whip it out at the age of 12. a drag, man!

    Yup, there was Thomas McRocklin, but nobody ever heard of him since.

    There's a new Scandinavian kid around now, 13 years old, Johan Randen. Mattias IA Eklundh features him on www.freakkitchen.com so he's for real I guess.

    Yeah, I'd heard McRocklin before but the sound of me being jealous drowned him out. :D

    Strange that he is [seemingly] now out of music... I think it's likely that he just wasn't into it anymore.

    Johan Randén? Huh... he lives less than an hour away from here and I've never even heard of the guy. I need to get out more often... :(
