Greg Bartona drummer originally from Nashville (United States) plays the hundred twenty eight songs of Foo Fighters non-stop for nine hours to raise funds for cancer research.

Last Friday, June 7, drummer Greg Barton kept his promise to play all the songs on Foo Fighters in a single session to raise funds for cancer research. She did it in a live broadcast that lasted more than nine hours and which you can see in the attached video. Barton played each album in their order of publication, and followed the list of each of the albums exactly as they were intended.

On his social media he expressed the following: “Not only have we exceeded our fundraising goal, but I have been able to make it to the end and I have had a great time along the way.”

“It was one of the hardest things I've ever done. You can see how my left hand was cramping on song fifty-seven and I really thought I wouldn't finish… I think it was pure adrenaline that allowed me to finish.” the last three albums,” he explains in his Instagram post.
