Slipknot drummer Jay Weinberg praises 5-year-old fan's air drumming skills

Rock News 21/01/2020

5 years old and this kid's already achieved way more than all of us.

This young fella, Caleb H, recently attended a Slipknot concert and ended up going viral for his air drumming skills.

A video of the young lad, wearing facepaint and a red jumpsuit furiously drumming along to the band, was uploaded to Twitter.

The Twitter video was liked 369K times in a couple of days, and caught the attention of Slipknot drummer, Jay Weinberg.

How cool is that.

Weinberg joined Slipknot in 2014, following the departure of Joey Jordison in late 2013. Fun fact - before joining the band, Weinberg himself was a young fan of Slipknot. He posted this photo of himself when he met the band when he was a kid, along with a pic of him (as an adult) now a member of the band.

So it goes to show - if you're a massive fan of a band and keep chipping away at your guitar/bass/drum skills - who knows, you could end up in the band one day!
