3/9/2009 7:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Breaking NewsJoey Gaydos Jr. -- the guitar prodigy from "School of Rock" -- is now apologizing for his underage DUI bust last month.

Here's the statement Joey sent to TMZ:

"Some of you may have seen video footage of me on shows like TMZ, or your local news regarding an unfortunate incident I had a few weeks ago.

The first thing I would like to say is, I made a HUGE mistake, and I really regret my actions. What I did was wrong, and all I can say is, I'm sorry to anyone I may have let down, I'm only human, and we ALL make mistakes.

To everyone who has supported me through this I would like to say, THANK YOU, it really means a lot."

Ray, you need a dose of reality. This was a PR move only. He's going to continue drinking, maybe not driving so much, but this is all a smokescreen. We're not vultures, we just understand how the celebrity world works. Bottom-feeders like this guy are going nowhere anyway.

Not only is he a LOSER, he is a young loser, just getting warmed up for the rest of his soon to be sorry life with fake apologies like this one. Not buying it.

I am so sick of hearing the "I'm just human. We all make mistakes" excuse!! Yes, we all screw up but for once, I would just like to hear some one say,"I screwed up. No excuses."

I love all the 300 lb no lifers posting on here about the kid being a loser. Why don't you get off your fact asses, get a life that exists off the internet, and find out what the rest of humanity is all about. I'll put $5K up that none of you would dare make such a statement to the kid's face.

Everyone makes mistakes. I am a fan and will continue to support. I bet at least half of you have drunken and driven, caught or not. He learned his lesson, and apologized. His talent succeeds his mistakes.
