Last week at the O Music Awards, rock musician Andrew W.K. set the world record for Longest Drum Session in a Retail Store after he spent 24 consecutive hours (from June 19-20) at his drum set.
While the songwriter/instrumentalist/party connoisseur was hitting the skins, lots of other rock musicians sat in and jammed with him, including the Red Hot Chili Peppers' Chad Smith, ex-Ramone Marky Ramone, and ?uestlove.
I was surprised that I hadn't heard of someone trying to do this before, but then again, most metalheads aren't too concerned with such trivial things as world records. As it was, I was surprised that Andrew W.K. was able to pull himself away from his partying long enough to try.
