Jim Moore, 1977
"It should be noted here that the protocol around this record changed around the year 2000. Drummers began meeting a standard that required a range of motion, among other things. Though Steve Gaul's, Russ Prager's, and Kunto Hatono's third efforts remain unverified by Guinness, their claims (given media corroboration and their own history with this record) are acknowledged here. Another example of how one agency may set certain parameters, but still not give an accurate depiction of that record's history and it's current holder. We present the facts, as a point of reference, supported by convincing evidence." -JR
