Drum Solo of Mike Mangini playing with Steve Vai
On April 17, 2002, Mike set the record for Bare Hands of 1,138 Singles in 60. Additionally, on July 19, 2003 at the NAMM Summer Session, Mike went on to beat Art Verdi's Traditional Grip record when he blistered 1,126. Then at the NAMM Winter Session on January 17, 2004, Mike Mangini and Jotan Afanador battled and set TWO New World Records for Matched Grip Single Strokes. First Jotan broke his existing record of 1,165 Single Strokes with a new record of 1,177. Not to be out done, Mike soon topped Jotan's score and became the new World's Fastest Drummer when he played a breath-taking 1,180 Matched Grip Single Strokes in 60 seconds. Mike and Jotan again battled at the 2004 NAMM Summer Session. This time Jotan topped Mike's 1,180 when he played a smokin' 1,199!
Mike then became the 1st person in history to break 1,200 when he set a new World Record playing an ourageous 1,203 Singles in 60 seconds at the 2005 Winter NAMM Session! Mike has truly proven to have the World's Fastest Hands™ !!!
Mike even topped that at the 2005 Summer NAMM in Indianapolis, IN when he played a smokin' 1,247 Singles in 60, thats 21 strokes in a second!!! We know...that's INSANE!
