It’s been a busy few months for YouTube drummer and rock and roll whiz kid Avery Molek, but he’s back in action after a summer of rocking with some of his heroes and one thing is clear: he was clearly ready for the big leagues! He’s made a successful career out of delivering killer drum covers that showcase a myriad of influences; whether it’s Van Halen or Rush – or in this case, Southern rock legends ZZ Top – Avery’s love for drumming spans the entire vast musical landscape that is rock and roll. This cover of ZZ Top’s iconic ‘La Grange’ is one that left us grinning ear to ear – is there anything this kid can’t do?
Fun Fact: Avery’s big break came in 2013 when at the age of 6, his “Hot for Teacher” cover went viral. It led to a TV appearance on Good Morning America, where he got to play with Brad Paisley.
His timing on this traditional rock shuffle is fantastic, and that opening fill is something that ZZ Top’s Frank Lee Beard would be fiercely proud of. Where many kids Avery’s age are focused on what’s ‘cool,’ Avery is setting his sights on a wildly successful career as a drummer that will take him to some pretty amazing places – and even better, he gets to listen to great music along the way!
