  The Budding Musician (Video)

I suppose as a parent you expect that at some point your child will know more about a subject than you do. I just figured this point would come significantly later than fifteen months.

When Terry hollered for me to come into the studio and see what William could do, I figured he'd give me a drumming demonstration. What I wasn't prepared for, was Terry naming which drumhead to hit, and William doing it. I could be sitting at those drums, and if Terry said, "ride, tom, snare, high hat, cowbell", I'd be able to identify and hit the snare. Not so with William. He knows them all, and plays with great enthusiasm.

And I noticed only upon video playback that he's playing all this one-handed. Terry will have to teach him some Def Leppard drum solos, stay posted for a future video. . .
