Andrew W.K. now holds a drumming world record
The record for the longest drum session in a retail store was set in New York yesterday by musician and party-devotee Andrew W.K.

His lengthy drum challenge took place in Times Square, where he spent a continuous 24 hours at his drum kit, motivated by special guests including Chad Smith and Questlove from The Roots.

W.K, best known for his track Party Hard, said prior to taking up the challenge, "What will keep me going for this drumming feat is interaction with other people - their energy, them cheering me on. This feat of rhyhmic endurance is going to push me to my party limits" .

The drumathon stunt was part of the O Music Awards, who have previously challenged artists to set world records including playing the most multi-city live shows in 24 hours, held by The Flaming Lips, and the longest freestyle rap which stands at over 9 hours, held by rapper Chiddy Bang.
