    I love this song...

    BTW Tom hosts his own radio show these days in Sunderland, England every Sunday from 4pm to 7pm local time in North East England. I live in Connecticut so it is on from 11am to 2pm EST in the USA. You can do the math for wherever you live. It's on right now as I'm posting this on Sunday October...

    I love this song...

    Go back and listen to the lyrics in the first song in this thread and I think maybe Tom is sending a message to several TV talent shows who wanted to showcase him and make money because of his heart condition. Tom turned them down because he loves and creates music for his own reasons, not money...

    I love this song...

    Tom hit 1000 subscribers on his YouTube channel today, September 26th. Thanks to anyone here who helped. Here is a nice original from him called United City, about the terrorist attack on Manchester, UK on May 22, 2017. Thanks!

    I love this song...

    Thank you very much to anyone who has made it this far into this thread. When I first became a fan of Tom's I had no idea about his heart condition. When I found out about it, it definitely floored me and made me a bigger fan. It scares me, I admit that. This boy was born with a condition that...

    MightyMouseDex - Drumming Prodigy

    As a result of watching videos by drumming prodigy Avery Molek, I ran across another young drumming talent in the "recommended videos" that impressed me. He is a 9 year old Filipino-American named Dexter. He's a pretty cool kid with some raw talent. Check him out! Here are a couple of his...

    The Doors / Donner Pass

    This is a pretty cool video that was shot in the general area where the Donner Party became stranded back in 1846, and shows the weather conditions they had to endure. Even in modern times people become stranded in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. The video is hauntingly set to music from The...

    Greg Lake of Emerson, Lake & Palmer Dies

    Unbelievable. I was a big ELP fan back in the 1970's. The first two rock concerts I ever went to were both ELP on their final tour before the group broke up in 1979. Greg Lake was probably my favorite vocalist of all time. The news came as a shock, but I guess not a complete shock. He really...

    Awesome 6 Year Old Drummer - Check it Out!

    Avery was only 6 when this thread began back in 2013, and I guess I've become a fan of his, so I'll try to do an update on him from time to time so we can see his progress. This one is from May of 2016, a song we all know I'm sure... PjOMTR3Be1A He's only 9. Lots of updates to come I hope...

    Keith Emerson is dead

    According to Greg Lake, Keith Emerson had been struggling with depression since the late 1970's, something that is a surprise to me. Keith always seemed so confident on stage, almost arrogant at times. Of course it's the younger Keith Emerson that I remember the most. It's a week later and...
