A man who has become a self taught drummer after first picking up his drumsticks at the age of just eight has become famous after he decided to show off his drumming skills and talent online. He has managed to clock up an impressive 1.2 million hits and, now aged forty seven, has uploaded almost one hundred videos of his drumming prowess.
Alex Warwick has shown off his talent in videos where he drums to a range of classic songs, including those by Genesis and The Police. His videos have been getting an average of one thousand downloads per day. He has also formed a band with international members who contacted him after seeing his talent online.
He said that fans of the band Genesis, fronted by Phil Collins, loved what his band did with the music and although he and his other band members had only met in person once due to their location, they had still managed to make a huge success of the band and their music by simply uploading via the Internet.
He said: “There are many technical hurdles making a video out of recordings from different countries but the results speak for themselves. Genesis fans love what we do.”
