NAMM 2004 International World's Fastest Drummer Competition
Tiger Bill and 9 Year Old Son Compete!
Since I first heard about the Drumometer, a device capable of accurately measuring drumming speed, I have wanted to try my hand (and feet) at it and so I bought one. Soon after I found out about the World's Fastest Drummer Competitions and wanted to try that too. Well I finally had the chance and had a ton of fun along with my son, Steve. Here's the story in words, pictures, and video.
First Day of the Preliminaries
Making the Final Cut
When it was all over, I had won the Fastest Hands Competition and set a new record as only the 2nd person to have broken the 1000 barrier with single strokes on the feet, putting me just 19 strokes behind the current long-time champ Tim Waterson. (Now Timmy will have to start practicing again!) Steve became the youngest athlete ever to qualify for the finals. Mike Duncan won Fastest Feet with a score of 782.
All in all, my son Steve and I had a terrific time and that's really what it's all about. (Although our cut of the $10,000 in prizes wasn't hard to take either!)
