I predict that this kid will overshadow his Dad's memory eventually. Great work!

This kid's burning the candle at both ends.
2012-08-12 01:10:24 PM  
I'm all fired up about this.

Or he could have just promoted Childs Play instead of reinventing the wheel.

It's not dust-- it's smoke.

they're going to need a bigger boat!

Does he use pyrotechnics? Because that makes shows better.

Am I the only one who hit the paywall?

Careful, too much dust in the air is flammable.

Those are ashes.

Attention Chicago Tribune: neither Great White nor Slaughter are "heavy metal". Hair metal? Sure. Heavy metal? There's nothing heavy about either band.

Making a charity at age 9? This kid's on fire!

Beautiful little man. His mother appears to have taught him very good values. Nice job all around.

He's donating to the burn ward.

/what, I'm not the only one to make this joke?
2012-08-12 05:40:23 PM  
Soon his music will be burning up the charts
2012-08-12 05:44:26 PM  
It's dusty in here from all the people BOUNCING OFF THE FARKING PAYWALL.

/still a paywall even if it's free

FTA: "In the second grade, his teacher, Chris Nawrot, caught the young boy passing notes in class. She tried not to laugh when she read the message on a tiny slip of paper:

I'm starting a rock band. Do you want to join? Check Yes or No (with a space included for a parent's signature)."

My cousin set up a similar charity in Lexington, KY. It kills me what these kids can accomplish at an age where I was lucky to get my shirt on right side out.

TheBeastOfYuccaFlats: Or he could have just promoted Childs Play instead of reinventing the wheel.

Because Child's Play is the first and only children's charity. From the article:

"Maybe I can do something, just me and Dad."

Rock on, junior.

With the right kind of spark, the imagination of a child can burn very brightly indeed.

For the record, Ty Longley only joined Great White in 2000, well after the band's "heyday".. But kudos for the kid starting the charity.
/Saw GW at the Post Office (a club)in Augusta ,GA twice in the '90s,
a great venue. They still rocked then.

What the kid's doing is sweet. However, I seriously doubt that his father died "trying to help others" as his mother claims. By every account--and from the pictures and videos I remember seeing--that place went up like a rocket.

Point taken.

What the Great White vocalist may look like:

/No surprise that the guitarist didn't last so long.
//Sharks are notorious predators.

They were in my town last weekend. I made sure to stay the fark away from here for fear that the entire town would go up in flames.

/still in one piece amazingly
