With so many stellar instrumental parts in each of their songs, Lynyrd Skynyrd is one of the most frequently covered bands. Professional and amateur musicians sit down with their guitars, pianos, mandolins, and even banjos to put their own spin on Skynyrd’s many classics.
But in the sea of other instrumental covers, drum covers of Skynyrd’s music are a bit more few and far between. Of course, that doesn’t mean that they don’t exist. There’s still dozens of great drum covers out there for Skynyrd fans to enjoy, including one by a YouTube user named namike777.
As is the case with any instrument, some of Skynyrd’s songs lend themselves better to drum covers than others. One of these songs is their 1974 release, “Don’t Ask Me No Questions,” which was written by Gary Rossington and Ronnie Van Zant and was featured on their album, Second Helping.
Bob Burns was the drummer on the original recording of the track, and as fate would have it, namike777 recorded his cover of the song in his friend’s studio, and his friend is also named Bob.
Namike777 revealed in the description to his video that he had only been playing drums for three and a half years at the time. But if we didn’t know any better, we’d swear he’d been playing the drums since he was a kid!
This guy does a great job at keeping up with the pace of this bouncing Skynyrd song, and he looks like he’s having the time of his life while doing so. He plays his part with such ease that he makes playing the drums look like a cakewalk.
You’ll be bopping along to this high-energy drum cover of “Don’t Ask Me No Questions” in no time at all. Be sure to check it out in the video below, and if you like what you hear, check out nammike777’s other videos here.
