Drummer Phil Knight has recently broken the record for the longest drum marathon.

He played the Roland V-Drums TD-20K for five days straight with only two and a half hours sleep throughout.

Phil broke the record in London’s Leicester Square, playing on behalf of the Helen Bamber foundation – a charity that helps survivors of gross human rights violations.

Phil is reported to have suffered hallucinations, extreme tiredness and aches and pains everywhere.

He battled through and entered the record books cheered on by a huge crowd in the heart of London.

Phil spoke highly of the Roland V-Drum TD-20K - in his own words, “I really can’t praise the kit enough.”

“I never had to move anything back to its spot, the bass drum never moved and I was really playing – no light tapping.”
