This kid is amazing!

Metro UK reports:

Howard Wong is no ordinary child – he’s the young rocker taking the internet by storm with his astonishing performances on the drums.

The closest most babies get to rocking is in their cradles.

He first displayed his percussion skills aged just 18 months with an accompaniment to Old MacDonald Had A Farm.

But now, at the age of just three, Howard looks set to become a big noise in the world of rock and roll.

He is already the centrepiece of his father’s band, wowing audiences with his sticks skills in a series of rock numbers.

One of his skin thumping efforts, in front of a large crowd, has already attracted more than 3million hits on YouTube. Even though Howard can barely see over the top of his kit, the prodigy shows he has enormous talent.

At one show, dressed in a Santa hat, Howard can be seen grinning as he produces a show-stopping finale.

There's more at the link. Here's a video of young Howard doing his thing.

That's astonishing! I can hardly believe a three-year-old can play that well. I guess my only worry is whether his young ears will suffer any damage from the noise of all those amplified instruments, what with being exposed to it from so early an age.

(Sorry, musician jokes are all but a reflex...)
