10-Year-Old Plays Drums to Avenged Sevenfold’s ‘Nightmare’ – Best of YouTube

Following the tragic passing of Avenged Sevenfold drummer Jimmy ‘The Rev’ Sullivan, former Dream Theater drummer Mike Portnoy manned the sticks for the band on the ‘Nightmare’ album and subsequent tour. Known as one of the greatest drummers of all time, Portnoy stayed true to the A7X sound while demonstrating his ability. Here, a 10-year-old has taken on Portnoy’s challenging beats!

This youngster plays along to the ‘Nightmare’ title track with seeming ease. The double bass is steady as can be and the cymbal work is spot-on. Utilizing the bell on the ride cymbal is a signature sound of the band and can be a challenge to execute so flawlessly at such a young age, but this little drummer has no problems!
