Phew, don't let this happen to you-- always check your straps before a concert.

Great reaction. I expected him to clap or something.
That girl on the bass drum should have controlled herself a bit more I think.
That guy doing the roll was super cool though, haha. Kudos!

True. I did expect the cymbal to actually break - well the thread title claims so.

When the cymbal hit the floor, it was just a ghost note.

Same thing happened to me but the band stopped playing because the noise of the cymbal rolling around was so loud, we had to start the song over. The band teacher was not happy.

WOW!

Wish I had his presence of mind when I was that age.

I'm betting he'll go far in life - unless he discovers women or beer.

I'm hooked on both...

He'll probably rue women because of how the girl playing bass is laughing. Next obstacle.... Beer

Love it!
I've been to so many of these school band performances for my kids but that was the best recovery I've seen yet. I have to admit, it's kinda fun seeing kids in bands and this is just classic. The girl on the bass drum smiling, just being a kid. The kid on the snare - dude nothing happened...focus, focus, - even the conductor - he cracks a smile too

Right, if I break a cymbal live and I get up and salute and it crashes and burns I'm blaming all of you!

His posture was great though...

Hahaha maybe this will start a trend?

If everyone here on the DW forum does it when something breaks it could be a worldwide thing by the end of the week!

Don't so it if you've been hired, tbat might be bad...

Infact, I might salute the control room if I make a mistake while recording.

See how long it takes to get fired.

To me it looks like she's smiling and impressed. I was going to ask if he got the girl in the last scene.

About time someone said what we were all really thinking! Kid can't even screw up right! Someone should beat that little anti-american punk until he can correctly look like a dork instead of whatever that was.

In all seriousness, though, he probably should have just thrown the remaining cymbal into the audience like a deadly Frisbee, then walked out calmly, flipping the bird in both hands facing opposite directions for maximum efficiency on that double-bird-flip.

Okay, in all seriousness, that last post contained very little seriousness, despite the leading claim.

That's why your a doc mr Watso. Three different perspectives on one topic. Very professional.

Oh, one more thing. Your name doesn't exist... Yeah, Watso isn't in my auto correct dictionary so you're gone have to get that changed.

This clip made the national news here in Canada; love the way the young fellow playing the snare kept his composure as well.

I'm surprised he didn't push one of the other kids over and steal their instrument.

When to Salute



A. You ALWAYS Salute Out of Doors except under the following circumstances:
  1. You do not salute in ranks.
  2. You do not salute when on a work detail unless you are in charge of the detail.
  3. You do not salute when either you or the officer are engaged in Athletics.
  4. You do not salute when driving government vehicles.
  5. You do not salute -under simulated campaign condtions (except when reporting to an officer.)
B. You NEVER salute IN DOORS except when reporting to an officer or when under arms.


C. You ALSO Salute under the following circumstances:
  1. If outdoors during the Retreat Ceremony and not in formation, you will face the National Flag, stand at attention and salute while "To the Colors" or the "National Anthem" is being played, (You will hold the salute until the last note is sounded.)
  2. If outdoors and not during retreat ceremony and the National Anthem is being played, you will face the band and salute.
  3. When personal honors are rendered ("General's March" is played) all officers and men not in formation will salute and remain in that position until the completion of the ruffles, flourishes and march.
Defer to Letter B
It's not a big deal but there is a proper way. He was at least showing respect and not like the beer salesmen at the ballpark screaming BEER during the national anthemn

Well, did pretty good not freaking out considering circumstances.

Maybe that specific institution punished him for doing so, or that school is a cult and they salute indoors.

I assumed he was a Boy Scout that forgot which uniform he was wearing. But a second look showed he wasn't doing the Scout salute.

I say salute technicalities be damned. He kept his composure and didn't detract from the performance. A true professional in my book.
