Hey, nobody cares anymore Tim. You are old news and have been fired from both places you set your records in.
The joke is on you you buddy. You may be a good entertainer, but everybody really knows you are a dick.

My (great) uncle, Prince McBride did this 2 times and has done these as official Records in Bradford and Manchester in the 1920's. He did 61 and 1/4 hours and then went on to 77 hours- so Tim, you are NOT a record breaker my friend. I have photographic and newspaper proof/ evidence, as well as of course family history.

Since Princes' efforts 100 hours,(as Prince wanted to acheve 200 hours of Jazz Dance music on a piano, playing constantly with 2 hands), has been achieved.

Prince could have done the 100 hours on his second atempt, although it would have made him rather ill, a local boxer carried him away from his piano, much to Prince's dismay and a doctor stating he would have finised as his health was not all that bad after all! Bradford T&A, Hastings & St. Leonnards Observer and more newspapers have all made reports on this, originals, from the original date, I still have!

...and also, money collected from Princes' records went to charity, so it went to real benefit too!

I was there when tim attempted to break this record and actually he was in violation of the rules and regulations governing the record braeking. on several occasions tim did not start to replay at the time specified.In fact I was the time keeper and made tim aware of this violation. Sorry tim you broke the rules
