The kid - I met him two or three years ago, when he was just a wee lad, more wee than now - is obviously a natural.

As is his older brother, in my reckoning, and his dad.

My older son deserves a great deal of credit, because he works very hard at his craft. Concentrated effort over a long period without flagging is much more commendable than raw talent.

The little one is haunted.

He listened to the song once, then sat down and played it just like that, and when we put a microphone in front of him on a lark, he immediately sang the Crickets part without hesitation.

The video is not only more or less the first take of the song, but it's the first time he ever sang anything. And he can sing and play at the same time, effortlessly.

Some people never get the hang of that.

I always found it deuced difficult. Like so many fleeting artifacts of my kids' youth, I know I'm going to be kind of heartbroken when he starts singing in tune.

Sippican will be annoyed with me for breaking up his thoughts into paragraphs, I know, but that's just the sort of thing I do here. So sue me.

His son's keeping of the tune will come with time . . .

I hope.

And trust.
