Video: SCORPIONS Joined By 12-Year-Old Guitar Prodigy At Brooklyn Concert
September 13, 2015
During last night's Yahoo! live stream from Barclays in Brooklyn, New York, you may have noticed legendary rockers SCORPIONS were joined by a very special guest — 12-year-old guitarist Brandon Niederauer! The third-generation SCORPIONS fan accompanied his favorite band for a rousing performance of "No One Like You".
As Niederauer headed to the stage, he shared: "'Rock You Like A Hurricane' was the first song and solo I ever learned and played in my first performance at age 8. The SCORPIONS' music is a big influence on my playing.”
Niederauer hails from Long Island where he spent his formative years playing his Gibson Les Paul. He became a fan of SCORPIONS while playing video games.
The guitar prodigy will grace the Broadway stage this fall in Andrew Lloyd Webber's "School Of Rock" launching November 9.
