Actually, he's probably already more rounded than Neil Peart is. Neil tends to be fairly one-dimensional. And there's nothing wrong with that. Find your niche, and fill it.

I'm definitely going to be watching out for Tony Royster Jr.. I hope he gets some good management behind him.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

WOW
Did you see when he was doing the snare work towards the end he was switching from conventional style left hand to the rock style (not sure of the terminology)

The correct terminology is 'matched-grip' versus 'traditional-grip'. Matched-grip obviously works better in a drum set setting, as it makes rolling through the kit easier. But when you gots some real snare work to be done (i.e. rolls, flams, ruffs, etc..), there's nothing like tradition-grip.

As a 9 year classically-trained percussionist and snare drummer, I can appreciate what this kid is doing at a very high level. And quite frankly, he blows me away like few drummers do. His foot work is what is so amazing for a young boy. That kinda of skill usually comes along a little later in a drummer's progression.

I'll checkout his band. Thanks for the links. I just hope his management, parents, and peers don't push him in directions that his heart is not willing to go. It would be a shame to not see this kid doing what he truly loves.

Wow, he is 21 years old now, and I had not heard of him before. Looks like he has gone down the hard rock path.

I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.

As a fellow drummer, I was most impressed with his fluidity. Most guys are bangers, this kid has it all. Hes smooth, shoulders are always square to the drum hes playing and his friggin footwork was amazing. Quadruplets and one handed triplets, traditional and matched grips, crosshand playing, cymbal work, tempo, timing changes..WOW! Ive played over 30 years...hes the best Ive ever seen.

I looked up the band's website. Their demo songs were pretty good. Supposedly they have a CD out, but I couldn't find any info on ordering it, so I emailed them. We'll see what kind of an answer I get.
