        In general I don't like drum solos (quite boring) but this is fun. When I was 12 years old, I couldn't even pronounce the word good drummmer. Hence I was a KISS fan...

            Don't feel bad. Drumming prodigies are all about chops and no groove. They have no future. He'll never be a great, musical drummer like Steve Gadd, Tony Williams, Omar Hakim, Josh Freese, Lenny White, Buddy Rich, Terri Lynne Carrington...

            Huh? Those drummers were all prodigies too? Oh well....nevermind.

                Okay, i've seen some great drummers do impressive solos. I'm not sure ANY of them (Neil Peart, Greg Bissonette, Phil Collins, Stewart Copeland, Nick Menza) were THAT much better than this kid! Holy crap he makes me want to QUIT! LOL!! Can you imagine what he'll be like after 20, 30 more years of playing?!?! Buddy who???

                    Exactly! I found the little guy to be extremely talented...he is a bad a$$ - comeon guys - how many of you could do that at 12?? I will never be able to play that way and I'm pushing 30... Unreal how young talent is getting...

                      Interesting that you include Phil Collins with these guys. I always liked his style and thought of him as putting a lot of feel into his music and having a decent groove. I never bought a lot of his music though. I think I have 2 CD's I'll give a listen to tonight. I didn't think he came anywhere near having the chops of these other guys.

                      Are there particular recordings of his where he excels?

                            Wow. That is damn good. Look at the boy's accuracy in the 7 minute solo, he doesnt miss a 1" diameter circle on the snare! He is gonna be big.

                              OMG !!!!!! I AM HUMBLED!!
                              This shows what you can do if those around you support what you do! You know this Kid has had people around him that encourage him. How many hours of practice do you think he's had? WOW!!
                              The kids HiHat,and Cymbal work alone was excellent!
                              Did you see when he changed up to traditional grip on the snare? Awesome!

                              I would say the little guy has a bright future ahead of him, if he doesn't let it go to his head. I've seen many good drummers that couldn't get giggs because they think they have it all, and don't know how to adapt to the music.

                              Watching him play is a booster, it makes me remember when I wanted to play as good as Buddy Rich.
