I think the solo on DW by Eloy Casagrande is even more impressive. This kid was 14 at the time. When you see kids with this skill level at such a young age it really makes you wonder. I was wondering if people like Smith, Weckl, Caluita, chambers, cobham, Silverlight or Marvin Smith to name a few, could play as well when they were that old. Maybe so, we just didn't have the net to know.

The gifted prodigy thing dissapates rapidly with age as they join the field of veteran drum masters, but it sure does make you wonder if they are simply born with a massive gift of physical dexterity towards drumming that allows them to reach that skill level in such a short amount of time. A level many playing for years never come close to.
