Playing That Fill From “In The Air Tonight” On 99 Toms

Jared Falk  /  UPDATED Aug 19, 2022

This might be the world’s longest drum fill in more ways than one.

What if “In The Air Tonight“, but for drummers?

And what if the fill – you know exactly which fill we’re talking about – lasted for an entire minute and was played on 99 toms while running around the Drumeo office?

That’s exactly what Jared Falk did. And it’s just as epic as it sounds.

That retro-futuristic looking electronic kit is a 1985 Tama Techstar, and that voice belongs to Jared (after all, it makes the most sense to both drum and sing when you’re doing a Phil Collins cover, right?).

The wait is worth it all for that epic fill, which starts at 3:10.

(P.S. Since this video went up, we did it again…but this time we played the world’s longest drum fill on ice!)

Jared Falk is a lifelong drummer, drum teacher, and the co-founder of Drumeo. For over 18 years, Jared has been a leader in the online music education industry, publishing his first online video lessons in 2003 and founding Musora in 2005.
