    Wow, I can't really diagnose what is going on with this guy. If it was one video, I'd say it was a joke.

    I only watched the Megadeth vid. I think he's just being a goof. Like who ever makes the so and so "shreds" videos.

    He's a video of him playing drums from maybe 4 years ago and it's actually not bad, a few rolls are sloppy but this can't be the same guy. Maybe something did happen to him. Maybe he had a stroke or something.

    I'm sorry, but I'm gonna have to be a wet blanket here, because I love you folks.
    And it's sorta what us older guys do, LOL!

    As a couple others have mentioned, it could be that this guy has gotten past a tragedy,
    one that none of us would want to face in a million years.
    I've personally seen this in my life.
    These could be enormous, monumental victories for some folks.
    We never know.

    Maybe its Bucketheads brother but without the talent?

    I think he probably had something happen to him. Thus the followers who are there to support him. Maybe he had a stroke, drug OD or some other health issue like a coma?

    He makes EVH 2004 sound like EVH 1978 Definitely a fan of the Schoenberg and the 12 tone scale

    Great point, Ziggy. The followers very well could be friends or family who know he's been through some hardship and are there to support. That actually makes me get choked up a little bit!

    Those covers are just so unbelievably bad that I have a hard time believing they're honest covers and there's nothing wrong with him.

    As a guy with a degree of brain damage myself I can say that absolutely may be what's going on with him motor-skill-wise but his fret hand is considerably faster than mine. He'd be better off to slow down though and re-develop that speed if the underlying structure (nerves, etc) are still there. For me that's all long gone. Regarding the expressionless face, that's part of my deal too as a result of the insult to my brain. The few times I've seen myself playing on video it's like I'm watching someone else because I know mentally I was on but on video I look out of it. Not intoxicated out of it, just "not there" out of it. It's bizarre because I know how I feel but my expressions rarely convey that. Some of that though has to do with no feeling in my fingers so I'm really having to concentrate on what I'm playing. As for the out of tune, I've got no idea. My ears are still on point.

    Don't you think that if he was battling back from something he's post it in the description?

    I agree with you that it's odd. I don't want to bash the guy if he is trying to recover from trauma, but the playing is so bad that I can't imagine anyone posting that for anyone and everyone to see and hear. Now, if he suffered a TBI or a stroke or something that makes more sense, but I know if it was me I'd put a disclaimer in the description.
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    I don't play guitar but I've seen Jump played about a zillion times and it looks to me like he's almost playing the solo on one string........that can't be right, can it?
