Why hasn't this kid been on Jay Leno?

Wrote Richard Kashdan, who sent me the link: "There are a lot of other videos on YouTube of amazing little kids playing music like this that seems way beyond their age and experience, and you could imagine that they were a reincarnation of someone, if reincarnation existed. Does this phenomenon occur in medicine; i.e. are there little kids who could just walk over to a patient and do a beautiful surgery (if Best Buy had a section where kids could play with surgical equipment)?"

I don't know, Richard, but it's a wonderful and provocative question. 

I've never even entertained the possibility before you raised it.

Perhaps some of my blade-con readers will offer their thoughts, anonymous or otherwise.

Dr. Bueller?

Sort of... The guy with no formal training that was a large part of Christaan Barnard's heart transplant success http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hamilton_Naki

...and one more thing, here's one of my favorites and definitely an argument for reincarnation. I mean really, the kid still has his baby teeth! There's just no other explanation...

Great gospel piano! (A YouTube comment described it as Church of God In Christ style.) Probably been around gospel since birth, and got the technical skills real fast, as musically gifted kids do. I'd love to see him on Leno.

That is a great question. I don't know about surgery, but I've met young kids who seemed like natural born psychotherapists (not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing)...

With all the keyboards, I was actually hoping for this...


but I'm weird like that.

Only about 10,000 views? What's his name??? Who taught him to play? Who's the guy on drums, his dad? No doubt he's gifted. I hope this video goes viral and he does make it to Leno.

Is doctorex right for me?
