Future Rock Star

So, the weekend before I left, my brother Adam came into town with his wife and three boys for Karlie's sister's wedding. We had the boys while Adam and Karlie were at the wedding. Nick got a kick out of doing the vocals on Rock Band. Alex enjoyed "playing" guitar for a bit. Here are the two of them together. The guitar is the size of Alex.


Anyway, I got some videos of Nick's fantastic vocal skills and his mad dancing. He can read really well in general, but it's pretty hard with the words coming across the screen like that. He actually did as well at reading the lyrics as a lot of adults I've seen play this game.
Here's a pretty good taste of him singing Maps by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. He also rocks the "tambourine".

As awesome as Nick is at singing, I think he's even better at dancing. Check him out getting down to Learning to Fly by the Foo Fighters.

If any of you are worried about Nick's possible future as a rock star, stop worrying. Jon pointed me to one of his favorite band's lead singers - Thom Yorke of Radiohead. Check out this video. He really looks like Nick dancing around 3:20 into it, and the vocals aren't too different either : )
