He broke Tommy Maddox’s record set in 2001 for the LA Extreme.

“He’s got this dream about buying some land
He’s gonna give up the booze and the one-night stands
And then he’ll settle down
In some quiet little town
And forget about everything
But you know he’ll always keep moving
And you know he’s never gonna stop moving
‘Cause he’s rolling, he’s the rolling stone”
– Gerry Rafferty
