Another Band Breaks World Guinness Record
My Nguyen July 9, 2012
It looks like this year holds the world record for the most musicians to make it into the Guinness World Record books. Just a few weeks ago, it was reported that the Flaming Lips made the news after breaking the record for most live show performances in different cities in 24 hours.
Now, Dave Grohl’s hometown of Warren, Ohio has broken the Guinness World Record with a tribute to the Foo Fighter front man of gigantic 900-lbs. drumsticks.
Grohl tweeted, “To the wonderful city of Warren, from the bottom of my heart I’d like to thank you all so much…For the childhood memories. For my family. For my very own alley. For the world’s largest drumsticks! And for all of your support…But most of all for being such a great community. One that makes me proud to say… I am from Warren, Ohio!”
Rolling Stone reports that the drumsticks will be on display at the Warren Amphitheater through September and will be relocated to David Grohl Alley in Warren afterwards.
