    My 10 year old son has recently begun taking drumming lessons (don’t boo, we need them!). As we were leaving one of his lessons, I picked up a flyer for a local show. I asked him if he would like to go and he excitedly said yes.

    The show was on Saturday night and we both had an absolute ball, as did my pops-in-law who is a big Pink Floyd/Led Zeppelin fan.

    The lead guy, Phil Walker and his Bass player Lee were kind enough to have a chat with folk at the end and Scott had his picture taken with them.

    A big thank you to Phil and the band for making the young lads night. He was buzzing all the way home.

    When they played Purple Rain ☔️ Scott turned to me and smiled, saying: “You play this Dad!” Haha! A great bit of Father/Son bonding.

    Way to start him on the right track!
    My son's first concert was Rush on the Clockwork Angels tour at 7 years old. He has been to several more shows since, he saw Sons of Apollo, and just last Sunday he went with my wife and I to see The Neal Morse Band (both of these bands include Mike Portnoy on drums) and we sat 6 feet from the lead singer. He also started drum lessons this year (at 13 years old now).
