      too bad russ doesn't actually drum. He has his snare covered with a towel most of the time to muffle the noise and just taps to the music. Unfortunately Guinness accepts that as drumming. Most of us feel that in order for it to be considered drumming you must play to the music exactly. As if you were on stage at a live show....which he is. Can you imagine going to a concert and the drummer has the snare covered with a towel and is simply taping his sticks aimlessly on the snare most of the time? SO ask your self that. I will never defend my title when it gets beat in this manner. I someone trys it and really plays hard like a real performance.. I\ll be there beside them cheering them on every second
