The Boy Bands Have Won, and All the Copyists and the Tribute Bands and the TV Talent Show Producers Have Won, If We Allow Our Culture to Be Shaped by Mimicry, Whether from Lack of Ideas or from Exaggerated Respect. You Should Never Try to Freeze Culture. What You Can Do Is Recycle That Culture. Take Your Older Brother’s Hand-Me-Down Jacket and Re-Style It, Re-Fashion It to the Point Where It Becomes Your Own. But Don't Just Regurgitate Creative History, or Hold Art and Music and Literature As Fixed, Untouchable and Kept Under Glass. The People Who Try to 'Guard' Any Particular Form of Music Are, Like the Copyists and Manufactured Bands, Doing It the Worst Disservice, Because the Only Thing That You Can Do to Music That Will Damage It Is Not Change It, Not Make It Your Own. Because Then It Dies, Then It's Over, Then It's Done, and the Boy Bands Have Won.

Commonly shortened to The Boy Bands Have Won

Jayson Brinkler - longest individual drum roll
Drummer Jayson Brinkler fell and injured his wrist days before he was scheduled to try and break the record for the world’s longest single drum roll in May 2015. But the British champion (who performed at the opening of the London 2012 Olympic games) soldiered on regardless, playing for 12 hours, five minutes and five seconds in front of a crowd at Highfield Baptist Church. “It was so tough - a lot harder than I thought it was going to be,” he told Kent Online afterwards. “A few days before, I slipped and injured my wrist. I didn’t think anything about it, but it did play a part when I attempted the record. About eight hours in, my wrist just went. It was very hard. I was in tremendous pain but I kept pushing and pushing.” Brinkler - who used the same drumsticks he’d owned for 30 years to attempt the feat - broke the record by five minutes and four seconds, but had to take a trip to A&E to get his wrist checked after he’d finished.
