Default Tony Royster Jr.

I think kid is amazing!!! Drummerworld doesnt have any good videos of him. Go to yahoo. video search his name and watch this solo. It's carzy, and hes only 12 in the video. The kid won the guitar center drumoff when he was 10 years old !! hes 18 now and has toured the world. I think hes crazy, what do u think.

(But it also helps when your personal mentor is dennis chambers)

I've heard only what I saw on Drummerworld, but I gotta say, he's freaking sick! I can't belive he won the guitar center drum off at 10. That's upseen. Being mentored by Dennis Chambers is quite the advantage. But he definetely has the talent. I can't wait to see how good he becomes. It's going to be ridiculous.

Yeah he's 20 now and can't use that young thing anymore. That went out the door at least 3-4 years ago.

I met him in Vancouver at Musicwest 95. Hung out with him, his mom and dad for a few days. All really nice people. Dad was in the Army, and a really good guitar player.

I remember Tony and I were farting around on a couple of electronic drumsets there was this huge crowd and man, I could barely keep up. I was 21 at the time. That kid was great then and should be a lot better now.

Tony is around 21 or 22 years of age now, and he is simply incredible.

The world know's that!

Hey Bernhard,

Would it be possible to, say, require (or at least suggest to) the pro drummers here that they check out the forum? I think if they are going to get the promotion of having their site on here they should at least contribute something to helping those in their craft...

Just a thought.

I've got a lot of respect for what Bernhard has done here with Drummerworld, but just because it's an awesome site doesn't mean you can expect the pro drummers of the world to line up to chat with everybody here. If they're that way inclined, they'll come - this should seem like a first port of call. But realistically, I'm here because I can learn as well as giving my suggestions.
I agree, and what those pro drummers dont need is a bunch of non pro's prying on them for everything but drumming conversations. Plus I rather not have them expose themselves on a personal level like a forum where people can get the wrong impression of them. Words can be so easily taken the wrong way or upset people. I dont like doing that to people. In fact I stopped posting on another site because something I said upset a few people and went into a direction that was not intended.

Its much kewl-er if we can meet some pro drummers somewhere in real life and have a conversation with them or maybe become aquaintences or friends even..

This is only my thoughts ok drummers?

I was at that MD festival and I couldn't believe how young he was. When he came out, he was so little and once he sat behind his set (which was Pearl I believe at the time...pretty big setup from what I remember) and started playing...my jaw (and many others) fell to the floor. One guy said, "i think i should quit" after Tony's performance! I'll have to check ou that DVD he did with Dennis Chambers.

ive only seen one video of tony when he was 12 and he was awesome. He did a great one handed fill with so much speed it seemed impossible and he would twirl his stick whilst doing it. If he is that good when he is 12 i would love 2 see him play now.
