|Aidan Fisher on Fox and Friends Morning Show
January 17, 2014. 11 year-old child prodigy wows audiences with top shelf cover of Van Halen's signature "Eruption." This young lad, Aidan Fisher, musters up the mojo and guitar finesse to rival Eddie Van Halen. Aidan is getting the attention of top news organizations and today stopped by Fox and Friends to do some live shredding in the studio.
Aidan was brought to the limelight in December last year when he was invited up on stage at a Steel Panther concert in Kansas City. Aidan is following the footsteps of guitar virtuosos discovered in adolescence - Joe Bonamassa and Quinn Sullivan. Critically aclaimed Joe Bonamassa was discovered by B.B. King. Quinn Sullivan made his prodigious television debut on Ellen at the age of 14 and performs at festivals with legendary stars like B.B. King, Eric Clapton, Keith Richards and Buddy Guy.
The band's guitarist, Satchel, actually met Fisher and his dad at a hotel before the show. Fisher had already planned to go to the concert with a sign challenging Satchel to an on-stage solo duel.
"It was awesome," Fisher told Fox News' Elisabeth this morning, saying he was nervous when he got up on stage.
"I thought, 'that's a lot of people,'" said Fisher, who's only been playing guitar for a few years.
