NAMM 2004 International World's Fastest Drummer Competition
Tiger Bill and 9 Year Old Son Compete!
Since I first heard about the Drumometer, a device capable of accurately measuring drumming speed, I have wanted to try my hand (and feet) at it and so I bought one. Soon after I found out about the World's Fastest Drummer Competitions and wanted to try that too. Well I finally had the chance and had a ton of fun along with my son, Steve. Here's the story in words, pictures, and video.

Making the Final Cut
Tiger Bill Wins Fastest Hands at Winter NAMM 2004
When it was all over, I had won the Fastest Hands Competition and set a new record as only the 2nd person to have broken the 1000 barrier with single strokes on the feet, putting me just 19 strokes behind the current long-time champ Tim Waterson. (Now Timmy will have to start practicing again!) Steve became the youngest athlete ever to qualify for the finals. Mike Duncan won Fastest Feet with a score of 782.
All in all, my son Steve and I had a terrific time and that's really what it's all about. (Although our cut of the $10,000 in prizes wasn't hard to take either!)
