So this kid (Drake Bell) is suppose to just be another teen star (well actually he is 25) but he grew up on Nick kids channel and he is a fully grown rock star in the making.

He has just about to go on a tour of the East Coast at the end of October dates etc are on his website www.drakebell.com and on his youtube account he posted a promote for the tour covering Queen's amazing "Good Old Fashioned Lover Boy" on the piano, I think his cover is pretty amazing what do you guys think? Certainly not just a teen star huh? this kid can play and sing.

Drake  is a huge Queen fan and his stuff is a mix between then, jellyfish, beach boys, beatles etc. Check out the cover and his original stuff

My advice to you is not to use such a crappy video filter, it makes you look pretentious.  Just let the music do the talking next time.  Good luck to you.

Great voice.

And nice to see Jellyfish mentioned.  They are one of the great 90s bands that just about nobody has heard of.  Brilliant songwriting.

I really love Jellyfish too, they were so under-rated, amazing musicians and great records

Wasn't really keen on this cover, nor the voice - but that's just my opinion.  Best of luck!

It was alright.. I don't like the way he slides to the higher notes. It makes it sounds as if he's not able to control his voice.
