An Amazing Drum Solo by 12 Year Old Tony Royster Jr.

I admit that in my drumming career I have performed a lot of drum solos that I could say I was proud of… a few in Disneyland, Disney World, Las Vegas and Croce’s Top Hat come to mind… nights where I definitely had a “good” night.

But, every time I watch 12 year old Tony Royster Jr.’s amazing drum solo, I have to say, “dammmn” that’s awesome. I could sure learn some things from him. Today, he’s not the 12 year old you see in the video, but he is just as amazing now as he was back then. Nowadays you’ll find him gigging with Jay-Z and touring the world.
