Following the tragic passing of Avenged Sevenfold drummer Jimmy 'The Rev' Sullivan, former Dream Theater drummer Mike Portnoy manned the sticks for the band on the 'Nightmare' album and subsequent tour. Known as one of the greatest drummers of all time, Portnoy stayed true to the A7X sound while demonstrating his ability. Here, a 10-year-old has taken on Portnoy's challenging beats!
As we draw closer to the 20th anniversary of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain's tragic passing, it will certainly be a time of reflection on the music that left such a lasting impact on the world. As fans pour through the Internet watching footage of the band, we're always in search of more. Most recently, filmmaker Dave Markey discovered some personal footage he had of Nirvana's last show in Los Angeles, Calif. before Cobain's suicide, and posted it on Dec. 30 (watch above via CraveOnline).
For every school talent show or concert, it seems like there's always one kid or group of kids out to show everyone else what some real music is all about. It's just a theory we have, sort of like Einstein's Theory of Relativity; it's just a theory, but it hasn't been disproved yet! Take a look at Exhibit A in the video above!
Metallica's live album 'S&M,' which stands for Symphony and Metallica, saw the band backed by the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra to make their music somehow sound larger than it already is. What's more epic than Metallica backed by an orchestra? A toddler dancing to it, of course!
Queensryche's biggest hit, like a lot of bands of the era, was a ballad. 'Silent Lucidity' is a gentle, acoustic driven song with orchestration to powerfully back the mood. Hey, even hardened metalheads can be softies at times! Here we have the song being played wonderfully by a young boy.
Here's a group of kids who can truly appreciate Alice Cooper's hit song 'School's Out,' considering they're still in grade school! No more teachers, no more pencils, just guitars, bass, drums, and some killer vocals from a 10-year-old girl!
We're going to forgo making any bad puns here about how sweet this drum cover is by this child. Oops! Sorry, we couldn't help it! Getting down to business, this kid rocks his drum kit jamming out to Guns N' Roses classic track 'Sweet Child O' Mine.' We're gonna nickname him 'Steven Toddler.'
Fifth grade is a turning point where kids start to develop a sense of who they are and distinguish themselves among their peers. This kid had the guts to go out there and try to rock the crowd, playing guitar along to Black Veil Brides' 'In the End.'
In a spectacular demonstration of human will and determination, Cornel Hrisca-Munn has not allowed his physical challenges to prevent him from pursuing his ambitions. Born without forearms and only one functioning leg, Hrisca-Munn, who labels himself as a 'disabled drummer,' mans the sticks in an incredible performance of the Foo Fighters classic 'Everlong.'
Here we come, reach for your...pacifier!? That's right, everyone, this baby loves Pantera! With the devastating hit 'Cowboys From Hell' blasting in the background, this little one can't resist getting antsy to some metal. There's no denying Pantera's music makes you want to break things, so luckily this baby was restrained!
Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith has been receiving threats in Brazil after an incident at a drum clinic involving a soccer jersey, reports TMZ. When presented with a Flamengo club jersey on Sunday afternoon (Nov. 3), Smith waved the jersey around then stuck it down the back of his pants making a wiping motion and turned his tush with its newly affixed tail to the crowd before tossing the jersey back behind him. Bad move!
On Oct. 22, brutal death metal got a little too brutal when fans' throats were slashed during Broken Hope's set as part of the 'No Salvation' 2013 tour with Deicide in El Paso, Texas. Reports indicated that three fans in total had their throats slashed with a box cutter and, luckily, all three were in stable condition following the attack. We are happy to report on the current condition of one of the healing victims, Julio Serrano.
