Alex you lost me completely there, I don't get how you associate fear with music. I'm glad for any 13 yr old or 8 yr old to be amazing and if these kids were already in the pocket in the womb, burying their moms heartbeat click, I couldn't agree more with that and fear is undoubtedly the very last emotion that that would invoke in me. I wish my parents had bought me a kit at that early age.Too amazing to be appreciated by the majority of drummers and ignored by many who FEAR people like him, specially if they are kids... was 8 on the video and now is 13 and is amazing!
Having said that, I totally understand Bo's criticism of showing off, as if music were a contest. The way I'm reading his post is, in the end I don't think he was criticizing anyone in person, "chops drummers" or anything specifically drum related per se. It's that nasty self promotion through social media that I can't stand either, which spreads like a cancer and which is why I deleted my facebook account years ago. If anyone needs a flame suit to criticize that, that means we've been much more facebooked already than we think.
