Look out, Eric Clapton! There's a new strummer in town.
Brad Pitt recently took son Maddox, 10, guitar shopping in Hollywood. The pair were seen coming out of Guitar Center with an employee following them carrying a black guitar case.
And members of the Jolie-Pitt household may want to get out the earplugs – budding musician Maddox also left the store with an amplifier.
It wasn't the only Jolie-Pitt parent-child outing this week. Earlier this week, Angelina Jolie was out and about in Los Angeles with twins Knox and Vivienne, 3, as well as Pitt's mother, Jane.

Looks like Justin Timberlake loves an adventure! The singer-actor recently rang in his 31st birthday in the rugged back country near Fernie, British Columbia, where he stayed at a local resort, Island Lake Lodge, with a large group of friends for three days. Timberlake and his pals were there for the off-trail snowcat skiing and snowboarding, but there was also opportunity for relaxation.
According to a source, the chefs prepared a special birthday cake for Justin's dinner party, and he was thrilled by the attention.
While there, a newly engaged Timberlake stopped into a local outfitter, Commit Snow and Skate, to pick up some equipment for his trip, the store's owner confirms. According to a staff member there, Timberlake was "excited and looked forward to some cat skiing" and he came in to shop with a group of people.
Though employees were mostly mum about Timberlake's stay, buzz built about his visit in the community. According to the Calgary Herald, "There was a lot of talk in town. Lots of word of mouth. A lot of people had heard about it or knew about it."
