World’s fastest drummer sets record with over 20 beats per second

From The Telegraph:

Canadian born Tom Grosset has broken the world record for extreme drumming with 1,208 single strokes in 60 seconds.

The previous record of 1,203 single strokes was set by Dream Theatre drummer Mike Mangini in 2005.

Tom Grosset, 23, became the second person in history to break 1,200 single strokes in 60 seconds at this year’s WFD-World Fastest Drummer, Extreme Sport Drumming event in Nashville, Tennessee.

This means that his hands were moving over 20 times per second every second for a full minute.
