I've been in this racket since the late 60s. Had a good, professional run and still lead a good bebop group. I still work hard at the craft. But the kids that get posted on my FB page can be unbelievable good players. They post these wunderkind nearly every day. Yesterday someone sent a vid of a 13-year old, playing to a recording of big band bebop, at metronome 320. And the kid is making all the breaks, etc. His parents must've built the studio he was playing in. Soundproofed. Some rich brats are getting the jump, damn it! You Tube has turned into the best drum instructor on the planet. Let's get these punks! (Of course, I am not serious here. It's amazing what these kids can do. But they do make me feel ready for the damned boneyard).
