85 hour drumming marathon success

Breaks previous record of 84 hours

The Guinness World Record for longest drum marathon finally came to an end yesterday as Ohio-based drummer Link Logen played for 85 hours – almost a full hour more than the previous record.

Guinness have not yet confirmed the official time but bystanders claim the event finished at 2:45am local time. Apparantly Logen was keen to drum on for another 12 hours making it four consecutive days of play, but unfortunately tiredness (and Repetive Strain Injury, probably) got the better of him.

You can take a look at Link's playlist on his MySpace page - it's a rock drummers' dream.
