Seattle-area boy (age 10 at time of publish) enjoys exploring the undiscovered, percussive sounds of household appliances. He also owns a Pearl drum kit (as well as a Pearl cajon), has been taking lessons for over a year, but is mainly self-taught in general percussion. His main inspirations are Neil Peart and Buddy Rich.

I have saved a few of my favorite comments I've gleaned off the internet....

"I would be more impressed to see the kid put some dirty clothes in it and turn it on."

"Obviously this kid's parents are the liberal "worldbeat" type who probably sit in a drum circle for breakfast every morning and think they're "elightened" because they enjoy African voodoo drumming and have passed it down to their children."

"It seemed he was wearing a wrist band from a hospital or something. Also, I think his shirt was on backwards. But he's got rhythm"

"his father is the Maytag man"


"Somebody get that boy a drum set. He`s got talent!"
[Reply from another user]: "They can't afford one in this Obama economy"

"Holy [BEEP]!"
