Air drumming, a true story.

Several years ago, fellow blogger (and Metal Inquisition founder) Mr. Gene Hoglan's Balls ended up living in the very same city that I call home. He asked me to help him move, and I happily obliged. As I was helping him move some boxes and recent Ikea purchases into his new abode, I noticed a pair of drumsticks. Since I play drums, I commented,

"Wait, I didn't know you played the drums!"

It was then that he answered in a way that only he could. He answered with a phrase that is still ringing in my head after all these years. Without any sense of irony, or seeing how this was insanely funny for an adult to be saying, he simply stated,

"I don't play, I just have those so I can air drum."

Here was an adult, a grown man, telling me that he would air drum to entire records, and did so sitting on the edge of his bed, and with drumsticks. My mind was blown. It's with that story in mind that I offer you this video.

  3. I think I've seen this video before. Teenage girls who can really play Metallica on guitar are a bit more impressive, but you have to admire the guy's spirit.

    Lucho, when (and why) did you change your name to Klaus?
