Jason Barnes

Jason Barnes is known as the "Bionic Drummer." Barnes began drumming at age 14, but lost his arm in an electrocution accident in 2011. After learning that he could tape a drumstick to his stump, Barnes continued to pursue his passion and eventually met and began collaborating with Gil Weinberg, a researcher and professor at Georgia Tech's School of Music. Barnes holds the world record for most drumbeats in one minute (2400) using a drumstick prosthetic.
