Andrew W.K. has set a world record for the longest drum session ever.
The hard-partying rocker set out to drum for 24-hours straight at the MTV Music Awards, starting yesterday, with some help from other stars including Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith, Zac from Hanson and even the actor Cuba Gooding Jr.
The drum marathon proved to be more of a challenge than he expected. "Every emotion and every feeling from the most excited and happy to the most - I don't wanna ever say I was sad, but in severe pain - like real physical pain," he told MTV News after the event. "I didn't anticipate that at all."
One thing that didn't bother Andrew at the event was his lack of sleep. "I actually never got tired because there was so much adrenaline and so many people that were especially giving so much energy. It really felt like a team effort," he said.
