6-Year-Old Drummer Crushes Van Halen’s ‘Hot For Teacher’
Forget the tired David Lee Roth or Sammy Hagar debate, how about Alex Van Halen or Avery Molek? Molek is a 6-year old from Washington, Pa. He’s been playing the drums since he was 4, and he’s apparently being taught by someone who knows what they’re doing.
Last Sunday, Molek released his latest recording session video to YouTube. In the clip, which you can view above, Molek rampaged through Van Halen’s drum-tastic “Hot For Teacher.” He totally crushed the fast-tempo song like a mini Alex Van Halen. Are there a few flubs? Sure. But he’s 6! Most future rock stars are lucky to be potty-trained at that age.
Molek’s been releasing clips for a while at his YouTube channel. He’s also owned covers of songs by KISS, Ozzy, Motley Crue and more. Molek has played live shows in addition to his cover songs. He did his own “Out of the Basement Tour” in late 2012. Touring at 6? As long as he’s not in rehab by age 10, why not?
