Dream Theater Drummer No Longer World's Fastest
The world record for the fastest number of single strokes in 60 seconds, previously held by Dream Theater's drummer Mike Mangini, has been beaten by Canadian drummer Tom Grosset.

Grosset took up the challenge at the World's Fastest Drummer contest at the Summer NAMM show in Nashville, Tennessee earlier this month.

Mangini managed 1,203 single strokes during his attempt in 2005, crowning him the world's fastest drummer for 8 years.

The title now belongs to Tom, who got to 1,208. They are the only two people in history who have ever broken 1,200 single hits in one minute.
