If you ask me, most kids these days are far more musically talented than us adults. I’m a musician myself, and on one hand, seeing these youngsters surpass me with their musical capabilities can be so frustrating because they make it look so easy, but on the other hand, it gives me great joy to see them as well, because I know that these boys and girls are the future of music.
This is crucially important too, because today’s popular music, for lack of a better term, is generally done without the need for talent. Just push a button on a computer and you have yourself a number 1 hit on iTunes, theoretically speaking.
Luckily, we’ve just come across a young man who has the power to change all of that. What you’re about to watch is a video in which a 14-year-old boy by the name of Gavin O’Brien perform a shredding cover of Pink Floyd’s iconic smash hit “Comfortably Numb”. To put it simply, we hope this young man gets signed to a record deal because after watching this, you’ll see that he deserves the hell out of it!
See for yourself!
