John Bonham's drum part in Led Zeppelin's "Good Times Bad Times" is one of classic rock's most legendary grooves. And, thanks to the skipping kick-drum part in the verse, one of the trickiest to pull off. That's just one reason we're so impressed with the above video of eight-year-old drummer Yoyoka Soma. 

The young Japanese prodigy has been at it since age two, and now plays in a family band. She effortlessly nails the entire Zeppelin song (watch her foot at the 25-second mark), complete with stylish cowbell flair. 

NFL star Russell Wilson: Montreal F1 “reminded me of Super Bowl”

  NFL star Russell Wilson: Montreal F1 “reminded me of Super Bowl” American Football star Russell Wilson says his first Formula 1 experience at the Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal last weekend reminded him of being at a Super Bowl. The Seattle Seahawks quarterback attended the event with his singer/songwriter wife Ciara, as guests of Lewis Hamilton, Mercedes and mutual sponsor Bose.Wilson took a hot lap of the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve on Sunday morning with Hamilton in a Mercedes SLS.“Awesome, absolutely amazing,” Wilson told Motorsport.com of his ride. “We were going so fast in the turns, hitting the kerbs, and we did some pretty sick spins! That was a pretty amazing experience.

The Internet is teeming with cover videos, many of them by kids like Soma. But there's something special about this one, which was originally a submission to the Hit Like a Girl drumming contest. It's not just the accuracy of the performance; it's her loping, laid-back approach, which is not only Bonham's greatest contribution to rock percussion – it's the hardest part of his style to imitate. 

And then there's the glee. Watching Soma whip around the kit during the chorus, you can feel the joy and abandon pouring out of her. This goes beyond "cute kid playing drums" and touches on something surprisingly transcendent.
