Inspiring Drummer Doesn’t Let Anything Get in the Way of His Passion

Physical impairment hasn’t stopped Daniel Potts from dazzling audiences by doing what he loves.

One YouTube channel has found a pretty original way to make cover songs. Daniel Potts is a drummer, as evidenced by the only description he provides on his channel: “drums,” and by his nearly 50 drum cover videos. What makes his channel truly distinct, is all of these covers are done exclusively with his feet. Potts doesn’t have arms, and because of his one word channel description his audience isn’t exactly sure of what caused his disability. The only thing we can be sure of is that Potts certainly hasn’t let his lack of arms stop him from becoming a fantastic drummer. His cover of Taio Cruz’s Dynamite was his first upload and still his most popular.
