To succeed in this record category, you literally have to master the drums. The »most drumstick spins in one minute« is about spinning the drumsticks around your fingers as often as possible within the time frame – while performing a song. Drummer Sebastian Runde aka Bastian Gregor succeeded in this exciting musical feat, for which he was awarded a RID record certificate at »Weinland Waterfront« in Hamburg (D) on 23 May 2022.
Bastian Gregor tries his hand at musical skill record
Bastian Gregor, already booked as drummer for local German music icons like Nino de Angelo, Truckstop or Torfrock, developed this world record idea for his rock-a-billy band »Biggs B Sonic«. The specialty of »Biggs B Sonic« are rock covers in rock-a-billy style with »some acrobatics on bass and drums«. Fittingly, Gregor chose the song »Mystery Train« by the »King of Rock ‘n’ Roll« Elvis Presley for his world record attempt.
Awarded record certificate after successful video verification
On 23 May 2022 the new world record was officially certified and awarded with a RID record certificate. RID record adjudicator Olaf Kuchenbecker, himself an active bass player, came to »Weinland Waterfront« at the Elbe river to meet media representatives and invited guests.
