A three-year-old girl from Ambler in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, has been revealed as the world’s youngest Led Zeppelin expert after her father uploaded a video to YouTube.

In the video, young Lily identifies a series of Led Zeppelin riffs played by her dad, Matthew Canning, including Heartbreaker, Houses Of The Holy, Dancing Days, Immigrant Song, Whole Lotta Love and Black Dog, before dancing around the room and singing along to Rock And Roll with somewhat wild and reckless abandon.

Matthew, who identifies himself as a technologist, author, dad, music snob, and oneironaut, was formerly guitarist in the hardcore band Shai Halud, but daughter Lily is already more famous. Good parenting skills.
