It’s never too early to start those jam sessions.

We’re not sure what it is about the Foo Fighters that makes 2-year-old Jaxon want to smash the drums, but once he’s positioned and sits through the opening guitar riff, he lets loose. At times, he even tries to pull double duty by singing along. He doesn’t quite hit every note, but he’s got plenty of enthusiasm, which could easily grow into a career in music.

As it turns out, this drum solo isn’t a one-time thing. Jaxon’s father, Justin Brown, has been posting drum covers to YouTube for more than five years, and Jaxon is already learning fast. He started out with duets, but now he’s able to play on his own.
