NAMM 2003 International Fastest Drummer Competition

Tiger Bill Performs at the WFD Extreme Sport Drumming Competition

This extreme sport drumming competition, held in Nashville, began Friday, July 18, with "heats" continuing through Saturday. The top ten Fastest Hands and top ten Fastest Feet battled it out on Sunday for their share of prizes that totalled $10,000! Follow this link for details and video clips of the event.

My thanks to Boo McAfee, inventor of the Drumometer, for inviting me to give my demonstration of Monster Chops. I had a blast offering tips, along with Art Verdi and the rest of the WFD Gang, to help get the contestants up to speed.

Congratulations to Eric Okamoto who won the NAMM Battle of the Hands competition with 1016 single strokes in 60 seconds and Kermit "Thumper" Tarver who won the Battle of the Feet with 768 single strokes in 60 seconds.

Congrats also goes to the following for new world records in the Fastest Hands category: Mike Mangini who ran 1126 single strokes to break Art Verdi's current record of 1116 single strokes (using Traditional Grip), Jotan Afanador who broke his own record of 1152 Matched Grip single strokes with 1165, and Seth Davis who set a new Fastest Hands Double Strokes record at 1,021.
