World’s Fastest Drummer (April 23, 2001 – August 10, 2002)

Art Verdi broke the previous record of 1071 Single Strokes in 60-Seconds held by Johnny Rabb by doing a Whopping 1116 Single Strokes in 60-Seconds. Art was the first man in history to break the 1100 Single Stroke mark and he did it all at the age of 56. Art has been affectionately nicknamed “The Godfather” by some of his colleagues, due to his 55+ years in drumming, and wears the monicker proudly.
