Calling All Drummers
Leave it to a league of drummers to come up with this one. Bun E. Carlos (Cheap Trick), Alan White (Yes) and Michael Derosier (Heart), are calling all drummers to Tacoma Narrows Airport in Tacoma, Wash., March 29 to make an attempt at setting a world record for simultaneous drumset playing.
The event takes place from 1-3 p.m. and hopes to break the previous Guinness world record of 120 drummers drumming at one time.
Each drummer is responsible for bringing his/her own equipment, which consists of at least a bass drum, snare drum, drum throne, hi-hat with cymbals and at least one tom, and a carpet or rug for the floor.
In addition to their world record goal, the group is also raising money for the Rotary International’s Polio Plus program. All money collected will go to the program, which seeks to rid the world of Polio by 2005.
