Youtube Drummer Delivers One Hot Performance

Youtube, yet again, served as a platform for stardom. Usually, Youtube stars are singers, comedians, or actors. But most recently, a drummer named Casey Cooper, who's known for his cover videos on the video-sharing site, not only found himself in the Youtube spotlight but almost got to play drums during Ellie Goulding's "Burn" performance at the 2014 Brit Awards. How? Skip to minute 3:00 in the video below to find out. We think you drummers will get a kick out of this...

This young drummer is on fire! Both literally and figuratively. Though he didn't get a chance to play at the Brit Awards, we think that Cooper has a good head on his shoulders and is going to do some cool, creative things in the music world, with or without his fire trick. While we don't recommend playing your kit with fire sticks, Cooper's innovative style is inspiring to all drummers looking to get creative with their art. To hear Cooper talk more about his almost-opportunity to play with Goulding, head over to Youtube.com.

Please Note: Playing with fire is dangerous. We do not recommend trying this at home. Simply enjoy this cool video and let it inspire you to create some hot rhythms (without the flames, of course).
