A band Steve Vai put together. The guitar player was a 13 year old (student of Steves I believe) the bass player was 14 and the singer was 16 and was the redheaded kid Sam from Different Strokes (an 80's show) and in Terminator 2. It was a very good band. Great players for their age.......or any age really. Brooks' drumming at 15 was pretty damn good. Spot on. Must be a Wackerman trait. I saw them open for Joe Satriani in 1991. Anybody familiar w/this at all?
I saw Bad 4 Good open for Satriani too.

Brooks Wackerman was so good that night, I almost puked and gave up drumming right there. I couldn't believe how well this 15 yr old kid was playing.
