Joe Walsh has posted a video of him and his godson — Roy Orbison‘s four-year-old grandson, Roy Orbison III — jamming at home to his 1973 classic, “Rocky Mountain Way.”

The rockin’ toddler joined Joe on vocals while strumming a cigar-box guitar and the jam took place at the home of Roy III’s dad, Roy Orbison Jr., and also featured Joe’s wife Marjorie, Roy Jr.’s wife Asa, and Roy III’s younger brother, Bo, as well as Roy Jr.’s brother Alex on drums.

At the end of the video, Roy III tells Joe, “I want to do that again.”

Young Roy’s dad, Roy II, told Rolling Stone, “Roy III plays guitar a lot. The first time we heard him play the whole song is the performance you see in the video. It was amazing!”

“Joe gave me my first cupcake and my Marshall amp. I love Joe!” Young Roy added.

The jam session wasn’t the first time Roy III got to display his musical talents. In 2017, when he was just 10 months old, Roy was featured playing tambourine and strumming a pre-tuned guitar on a reworked version of his grandfather’s classic song “Oh, Pretty Woman.” That song was released on the album A Love So Beautiful: Roy Orbison with The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
