WFD (short for World’s Fastest Drummer) is a highly charged, interactive phenomenon and has been a feature at NAMM for the past 4 years. Celebrities visiting WFD this year included rock legend Bobby Rondinelli from Blue Oyster Cult, Black Sabbath and Rainbow, plus hard hitting Scott Travis of Judas Priest fame, World Drum Corps and Pipe Band Champion, Jim Kilpatrick, Jon ‘Bermuda’ Schwartz of Weird Al Yankovic, and Mr. Sammy Ash, of Sam Ash Music, taking some time out of his extremely hectic schedule to have a little wacky fun with WFD. Further, Wired magazine’s Joshua Davis, who is a contributing editor and author of The Underdog, covered WFD for an upcoming story in Wired.
The next WFD World Finals is scheduled for NAMM Summer Session in Austin, TX in July 2006. For more info visit www.WorldsFastestDrummer.com
