Biz..you would be correct in that Justin has drumming talents that shouldn't be 
blown off. That's his first instrument and he plays well. Same with Gaga...and 
the piano. She can play the piano...classically. In Justin's case...he pulled 
the Marvin Gaye/Teddy Pendergrass thing and move to the front to sing. Also, 
everyone should keep in mind that producers are dictating what he should sing 
and perform and his contract I'm sure expects a sales range from what he does 
based on what they've paid him. At this point I doubt very seriously HE's 
dictating his direction. That time hopefully will come though.

Did anyone besides me happen to catch the Letterman show the other week when 
Justin Bieber read the top 10 list? Much later in the show the kid sat in on 
drums with Paul Schafer and the band. He really is quite the drummer and should 
be given his props for some serious stickwork. He's no Alphonse Mouzon but 
still.....not too shabby.
