Tommy Lee, Who?
We’ve been following 9-year-old drumming sensation Avery Molek for about a year and while he’s covered pretty much every classic rock staple, this is the one we’ve been waiting for! This week, our favorite drummer is back with Mötley Crüe’s “Kickstart My Heart” – a hard rockin’ classic that also looks like an incredible amount of fun to play (and not just for Tommy Lee, either!) – and from the looks of things, this may just be one of Avery’s favorite covers in his already impressive repertoire, too.
Not only does he get to channel his inner 80’s rock drummer, Avery gets to test out his chops towards the end of “Kickstart My Heart,” jamming out an awesome little outro that you just have to see for yourselves – the way Avery is progressing as a drummer and developing his own style that I’m sure we’ll be seeing more of in the future is nothing short of impressive!
Fun Fact: Now 9 years old, Avery’s journey to rockstardom began at age 2 when Santa left a tiny drum kit under the tree for him. The rest, as they say, is history.
With many of rock’s greats dying off at an alarming rate and in Mötley Crüe’s case, retiring, rock’s die hards are left wondering as to who will carry the torch when the dust settles and a new generation of rockers is ushered in – and the answer comes in the form of kids like 9 year old Avery Molek. This is the future of rock and roll, guys – and we can’t wait to see what else he’s got in store!
