I vaguely remember that dude from Blink 182, Travis Barker, setting some kind of record in regards to the speed at which he plays drums. Anyway, if that was true, he’s no longer top dog.
Tom Grosset set the new world record for number of single (drum) strokes in 60 seconds. Guesses? 1,208! The previous record was 1,203 set by Dream Theatre drummer, Mike Mangini. (Okay, so maybe I have no idea what I am talking about with the Barker statement…somebody help me out — what record does he hold?)
Thanks to the Twitter account of @AdbulYMalik, you can watch the record be broken:
WARNING: DO NOT ADJUST THE VOLUME ON YOUR SPEAKERS, IT’S SUPPOSED TO BE LOW IN THE BEGINNING…
