Proud mum, Doreen Whitesnake, is claiming that her son Oscar is nothing short of a child prodigy and a new guitar virtuoso, set to topple Bert Weedon from his pedestal.
The Whitesnakes, from Hull, are adamant and defy anybody to say they are wrong. Doreen told us:
"Oscar can play the solo from Deep Purple's 'Smoke on the Water' and he's only 12. Ritchie Blackmore was a lot older than that when he played it and he was regarded as a true genius, so what does that make my Oscar?"
She then asked young Oscar to demonstrate his technique and in fairness he played it very well indeed. We then asked professor of electric guitar studies at Portsmouth University, Bob Geldof, to comment. He said:
"I think Doreen's a bit mixed up with her thought process here. Basically she's talking a pile of cack!"
Banjo player George Formby commented:
"Turned out nice again ain't it?", before launching into a version of 'Mr Woo' and then treating the assembled press to some nice burgers made on his George Formby lean mean grilling machine.
