Jack Ripper

This Kid Shreds

A couple of nights ago I hit up a private company party (some masonry outfit, i was just crashing it for the buffet & drinks), and witnessed this kid who calls himself

Jack Ripper

annihilate his guitar, giving Hendrix's "Star Spangled Banner" a run for its money, busting out Tony Iommi and Randy Rhoads riffage. The kicker is, he's

ten freaking years old

. Local omnipresent bass maestro

Paul "PC" Cardone

was rocking out with him, with

Chocolate Fountain

frontman D.L. on the drums. Even after his set was over, the Ripper was toting around his mini-flying-V guitar kicking out unamplified solos. Have no doubt, ten years from now (or sooner) this kid's gonna be a metal god. You can check him out on November 17 at Cooper'stown with the local band Kraised.
