When it comes to matters pertaining to the band KISS, I always confess quite a level of bias, having been a fan since 1987 – and particularly a fan of late drummer Eric Carr. Besides this meaning I’ve been a member of the KISS army for 25 years now, I always keep my eyes peeled for something of interest when it pops up on the web.
Look no further than a video I stumbled across today that I’m sure even rock fans in general, drummers, and our regular readers here at Geeks of Doom may find will bring a smile to your face.
His name is Avery Molek, he is 5 years old, and a KISS fan. More than that he is also a drummer, and his ability at his very young age is remarkable. Continue reading to check out a video of Avery in action.
After Eric Carr’s death in 1991, KISS released the album Revenge, which closed out with a drum solo Carr had once recorded. Entitled “Carr Jam 1981”, it was added to the album in memory of Carr.
Avery is shown below doing his own rendition of the memorable Eric Carr drum solo, and I must say, it is quite impressive. Sure he has a little way to go, but check it out – by 5 years old he is brilliantly shadowing Eric Carr’s solo. When I was 5, I was walking around picking my nose – this kid here is kicking butt all in the name of rock and roll!
