46 & 2 covered by schoolkids

God damn. I have wasted my life. They all kill it, but highlights for me were (in reverse order):

3. The little girl singing. A little more growl would have made me happier, but she’s awesome anyway.

2. The little boy tapping the blocks.

1. The drummer! I wasn’t sold until somewhere around the five minute mark when the hardcore Danny Carey fuckfest started and he nailed it. Granted, I’m no drummer so maybe he fucked it all up, but bear in mind that this kid’s like 13 max. Christ.


God damn, kid.

all paths lead to youtube

So there I am, minding my own business, after fixing that Bohemian Rhapsody cover post I posted earlier, and I start to get curious. “What was Bohemian Rhapsody about?”

Google leads to wikipedia leads to youtube “queen bohemian rhapsody” leads to “freddie mercury acapellas.” My own brain made that leap somehow. Then I go looking for other acapellas, and found some fan-made ones for Maynard James Keenan (Tool, A Perfect Circle, Puscifer).

Then I find this bit of awesomeness. I used to be a gigantic Guitar Hero nerd. I got chills when Freddie Mercury’s track lit it up, and double chills when Maynard killed it. Apparently this is Maynard on stage (hard to tell visually when all I can get to play smoothly on my POS connection is 144p, but it’s definitely his voice) at some Guitar Hero convention/promotion, nailing Bohemian Rhapsody. Video’s dated three years ago.
