Todd E. Lyons Blog: Like Father, Like Son – Mad Air Guitar Skills Are Genetic

If you’ve ever listened to “The Big Show,” you have probably heard my self-proclamation that I am the “World’s Greatest Living Air Guitarist.”  While I stand by that claim (I once won a competition at the old Grant’s Pub pantomiming Jimi Hendrix’s “Fire”) I may have to pass the torch to a young, up-and-coming member of the next generation – my son, Drew.

Last Thursday, at the final installment of the very successful concert series “Downtown Summer Nights,” the band “Eclectic Approach” broke into the Black Crowes version of the Otis Redding classic “Hard To Handle.”  I, of course, immediately jumped out onto the makeshift dance floor in the middle of 4th Street when, what to my wondering eyes should appear, none othet than my 8 year-old son Drew UP ON STAGE with the band, wielding his imaginary axe!

The boy has probably heard that song eleventy brazillion times in his short life as I am a MASSIVE fan of the Crowes, so it probably came to him second nature.

Thanks to KATS listener Vickie Reed for uploading the video to YouTube and sharing!  I hope you get a kick out of it as much as we did!
