If this is where the future of rock music is headed, then I think we can all rest a little easier tonight. At 14, teen guitarist Jarrod Bolon delivers one of the best Metallica covers we’ve ever seen, hands down. He tackles the iconic ‘One’, and even includes all of the solos; not exactly the easiest thing to do, but he attacks it with a level of passion and precision lightyears ahead of where he should be, much less where other guitarists his age are.
The gem of 1988’s …And Justice For all, Metallica’s ‘One’ has a series of sections that are comprised of everything from clean sounding melodies and blistering solos, to chunky breakdowns and thrash metal passages that Jarrod manages to tear through absolutely flawlessly!
We can’t wait to see where Jarrod’s phenomenal talent takes him. Who knows – if Kirk Hammett’s ever looking to retire, we know just the right person to fill in for him!
