On July 13, Canadian-born Tom Grosset set a new record for extreme drumming, becoming the second person in history to hit more than 1,200 single strokes in one minute. The 23-year-old drew applause at the World’s Fastest Drummer (WFD), Extreme Sport Drumming in Nashville, Tenn., when he broke the record with 1,208 strokes, which means his hands were moving more than 20 times per second. The title previously belonged to Dream Theater drummer Mike Mangini who hit 1,203 strokes in 2005. According to his YouTube page, Grosset adds drums to music for films and game soundtracks.
