9 year progression of a two-year old drummer

this kid tyler hudson started playing drums at age 2. he's about 11 now. this video shows him playing through the years. it's just a little bit frustrating.

(thanks, steph.)

If I was him, I'd be pissed that my parents allowed me to play with so many sh*tty bands for so long!

i'm with the other anonymous guy. the parents just effed this kid out of career by letting him play with amazing douchebags. way to end your kids career before it starts, not to mention wasting his enormous amounts inherent ability... kudos mom and pops.

Yeah, because every artist starts their career with top notch bands, and not with some lame cover-song groups playing in sleazy nightclubs. At least he got the bad part out of the way early.

Yeah, seriously. What does playing with a couple of cover bands when you 8 have to do with a future career? The kid is a natural!

ive been playing all sorts of music on all sorts of instruments for years, and if you think anyone can make it by without ever playing with douchebags, then you are seriously jaded.

You have to wonder how the kid would have turned out without the drums though...
I mean, could his parents have just as easily given him a box of crayons and come out with a new Picaso?

Couldn't spot any earplugs in any of those shots - the kid can thank his watchful parents when he's deaf at 13 years old.

And just imagine if you would have taught him eating hot dogs! Or carving sand sculptures! The possibilities just seem to be endless here.

The kid is awesome!

Holy sh!t. That's amazing. He was covering a Rush tune at age 6!? I mean...Neil Peart...at age 6. He seems to have a little Peart influence in his solo's as well. This kid could be the second coming of Buddy Rich.

I can't believe ANYONE would dare criticise such talent. What you got to offer?

BTW...Betterman...good choice!

That last one was pretty awesome. The kids mind must be in a living sonic soundscape.

i bet he's totally deaf by now. I didn't see him wearing earplugs in any of those clips.

His parents basically turned their kid into a noise-making automation. Poor kid.

At least he keeps a beat.

Great talent!

He's gonna get laid...a lot!

First thing I noticed is the lack of ear protection at age 2. Not much iPhone enjoyment in this kids future.

boohoo he didn't have earplugs. the kid's a drummer not a piano tuner. and start crying to the parents of the drummer of your favorite band next time you turn it up a little bit. jesus christ.

holy crap the kid is doing well! and in regard to the hearing protection comments - yeah, it would have been best if he'd been using plugs all this time, but a lot of us grew up playing like this from a young age and didn't have it. I do suffer a slight amount of hearing loss after over 20 years of playing with no protection (before I started using plugs), and I do wish I'd worn some, but let's not blow it out of proportion and become a bunch of nitpicky little nutsacks here. Celebrate that the kid jams :)

Maybe you've seen the pictures of Jimi Hendrix standing in the back row of whatever band that was. This is a cool kid. It takes about that long to be an expert, and I hope he sticks with it, though I'd be surprised if he finds musicians at his level to play with. And it's going to be tough getting through school if he already knows what he wants to do. Won't be much point.
