Youngest Drummer

Julian Pavone might only be 7 years old but the Guinness Book of World Records has just declared him, “Youngest Professional Drummer”. This pint-size tub-slapper has already been on talk shows like Good Morning America, Oprah Winfrey and Inside Edition. To qualify for the Guinness record Julian had to receive payment for performing on a commercial record as well as playing at least 20 live performances in five years.

Air Drumming

First we had DrumLine, then we had StepBrothers… now we have “Adventures of Power”. This movie (being released October 9th in New York City) is all about Air Drumming. Yea, you heard me right – AIR DRUMMING … It begs the question, WTF???? … The trailer looks like it would be a stupid movie but who knows, I’ve been surprised before. I’ll wait to let you guys be the guinea pigs {grin} and I’ll wait for the reviews before spending the money.

The coolest thing is… there’s another movie about DRUMMING! – – Awesome!

Update: Adventures of Power gets a review (“drums up”!)
