Meet nine year old Benjamin Bluestein, face-melting guitar shredder.
Benjamin took part in last week’s Rock N Roll Fantasy Camp in Las Vegas where he stunned his teachers which included a host of guitar-playing greats.
Buzz to see the boy’s shredding nearly surpassed that of guest players Alice Cooper and Ace Frehley. The crazy part is that Benjamin has only been playing for two years.
Benjamin’s mother told Noisecreep that “as good a teacher as he has back home, there’s still been something very special from the moment he first picked up a guitar while at his sister’s drum class.”
Phil Soussan, who’s played with Ozzy and Vince Neil, served as Ben’s camp counselor. Soussan commented that he was “incredibly impressed” with the youngster.
Looks like it may be time for Benjamin to team up with Jonah, the 7 year old drumming prodigy.
