As fit as a professional footballer, possibly.

Playing the drums for a rock band requires the stamina of a Premiership footballer, research suggests.

Tests on Clem Burke, the veteran Blondie drummer, revealed that 90 minutes of drumming could raise his heart rate to 190 beats a minute.

Despite rock's reputation for unhealthy living, Dr Marcus Smith, from Chichester University, said drummers needed "extraordinary stamina".

A hour in concert could burn between 400 and 600 calories, he said.

"Rock drumming in particular is very energetic, and to add to this, these guys are playing in a hot environment - you'll see them literally dripping with sweat."

I can confirm this, I have seen him literally dripping in sweat.

amazing! all we need to do is a headline tour and i'll have abs like peter andre!

actually, despite drinking like an alcoholic, doing drugs like a professional and eating lots of crap, i lost a stone on the nme tour and found that afterwards when i went to the gym i could run on the machine for as long as i wanted.

this american tour is going to be wholefoods and no booze so maybe i'll reap the rewards of burning all those calories.

Is this why drummers speed up? Keeping in time with their heart rate?
