?uestlove, the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Chad Smith and… Raw Dog Comedy host Mark Says Hi? That was just three of the special guests to join rocker Andrew WK’s quest to beat the world record for playing drums continuously. For 24 hours, WK sat behind his kit in a Times Square shop window as friends and fellow musicians sat in on a second set feet away.

“I received a call asking if I play drums. I said yes. Then they said, how would you like to do it for 30 minutes Live in Times Square? I came in on Andrew’s 20th hour of drumming. Just looking out at the crowd, seeing them take photos piling up against the window, and then getting messages from people across the country watching it stream live qualifies for a pretty sweet afternoon,” says Mark. “And mega congrats to Andrew for rockin’ out for 24 hours, was nice to be there along his side for part of the ride!”

We say congrats to Mark too – now he’ll have to have grand kids so he can tell them this story over and over again.
