this one kid is playing all of the instruments on this Boston classic tune and I have yet to master the comb and wax paper.

This video: A cover version of Boston's "Foreplay/Long Time" presented in split screen. Jon Baglo playing all the instruments. Spencer Needham doing all the bg vocals. And featuring the amazing David Steele on lead vocal.
Here's David's web site:
Note re: the drums... You're hearing take two... a continuous performance with no punch-ins or fixes. Unfortunately, I could not be there to videotape it. So Jon did ONE more take just for the video camera. Hence the discrepancies . I'd say 3 or 4 mismatches during a re-enactment of over 7.5 minutes of drumming is pretty good.
Recording engineer: Jon Baglo.
Mix engineer: Dale Baglo.
Steadicam & video editing: Dale Baglo.
Jon is forming a band: "Subject Zero"

Wow... that kid is amazing! He can't be much older than mid to late teens... and loaded with musical and instrumental talents. CRAZY!
As some of you know, I'm one of the biggest Boston fans on the planet... so for that young lad to pull off a "one man band" rendition of, perhaps, the greatest song ever (a personal favorite of mine)... it just blows me away. It wasn't perfect, but damn... it was impressive to say the least. If he don't already have an agent after that youtube release, then, it's official... nothing makes sense anymore and there is no more justice in America.
For the record... I've watched the entire (almost 8 min) video 4 times already. I even looked up (and listened to) more of his musical masterpieces... Carry On My Wayward Son (by Kansas) was pretty awesome as well.
He's already getting gigs and playing with some big time artists.
Thanks Mr Hunt!
I must agree he is one of the most talented kids I've ever heard doing a cover ... but that he plays all the instruments is freaking mind blowing - hell, I can't even play the kazoo and to think today is National Kazoo Day. Not to be overlooked is the vocal arrangements of David Steele and Spencer Needham.
Equally as impressive to me is the cover of Kansas' Carry on my Wayward Son which I have linked for people's convenience.
NEWS UPDATE: Jon is touring with Funk Vigilante in July. For cities/dates: http://www.funkvigilante.com.
This video: New STEREO mix, with brighter, better picture. Jon's One Man Band covers the Kansas hit. Jon plays all the instruments, and Spencer does all the vocals.
(original file was uploaded August 2007, 4 months after Jon turned 16)
Another one man band
Another cover song... this time up, it's "Lady" by the Little River Band (1978). The audio was recorded and mixed on the night before Thanksgiving. The video was shot the day after Thanksgiving.
A better quality audio file (stereo mp3) is available here if anyone is interested:
PS - to those with sensitive ears, apologies for my slightly out-of-tune piano...
