Hey everyone,

My name is Thomas Grosset and this is my first post on this forum.

This thread is based on the WFD competition that took place July 27-29th in Austin, TX.

I was labeled as the official WFD champion after winning the 2007 Summer NAMM World Finals in Austin, Texas with 1,156 singles which is currently the highest score that's ever been recorded during the finals. My highest preliminary run was 1194 single strokes which made me the new WFD 16 and under World Record Holder and ranking me as the third fastest in the world.

This is me winning the 2007 Summer World Finals with 1156 single strokes.

Thanks, but I'd appreciate it if you wouldn't put down Matt. He's a great guy and has a raw talent.

Tom is a BEAST. he was hitting the most insane number i'v ever seen so consistantly. he even broke the record for 16 and under. I'd eventually like to go for the hands, but kids like him almost scare me away

people dont realize that its just one aspect of drumming. They think these kids dont play on a drum set or all suck, and sit there all day with a beater distance of 2 inches and play as fast as they can.

Tom grosset- Sick drummer
Mike machine - Sick drummer
Matt smith - cmon, do i even need to say anything
johnny rabb, mike mangini, tim yeung............. these guys are all sick talents. relize and recognize it

Most guys here seem to think it's less of an aspect of drumming then quoting famous drummers and arguing over gear

You know I think most people are cool with this thing now because they do know there are other things going on with WFD guys. And none of us push an issue unless we're attacked by fools. In fact we're pretty well known for being respectful of well intentioned disagreements.

But characters like Crackheadback are another issue, and the last of a dying breed...the slightly older version of frustrated musician who can't play as cute as he talks, and thinks a certain level of BS with attitude will transform him past something God obviously cheated. This guy has a video that you can find on the search engine of this site. I'm pretty sure that pathetic drummer is him. His playing is six miles of bad road, and there's nothing he can say about that except yup. In fact he needs to drop the smack talk and stick his nose into a few pages of Stick Control before wasting any more practice time on a forum.
