GoPro Music: Tony Royster Jr. – Drummer’s Odyssey
Shot 100% on the HD HERO3+® camera from http://GoPro.com. Watch with headphones.
Tony Royster Jr. discovered his calling in life was to play the drums; he was 3 years old. At the age of 5, his father bought him his first real drum set. By the time he was 11, he was labeled a child prodigy, and ranked among the best in the world.
“I just continued to play, to stick with it. I always had a passion for drums….the rhythm, the feel, the sound, the way it made me feel when I played, automatically made me feel like this is what I’m supposed to be doing.” Tony Royster, Jr.
Today, Tony is widely recognized as one of the world’s most acclaimed & gifted drummers, working and touring with the world’s biggest rock & hip hop acts. GoPro is honored to present a unique glimpse into Tony’s gift as told through an intimate, live multimedia drum performance.
Recorded on a custom built GoPro production set at the DW drum factory, and scored by Tony’s personal home video projections, Tony transforms his drums, childhood memories, and a few GoPro cameras into a drum solo that must be heard, and seen, to believe..
