The Passion of the Mallman

A blow-by-blow account of Mark Mallman's agonizing, ecstatic 52.4-hour song

10:20The crowd roars as Mallman crosses the 52.4-hour mark. A giant banner with stars and stripes unfurls behind the band: "Mission Accomplished."

Somebody shouts for an encore, and Mallman obliges.

10:50 Backstage, I ask Mallman what he's going to do now. "Take a shower," he says. "Maybe watch A Clockwork Orange and fall asleep."

Did he ever feel like he was going to pass out? "All the time. But dude, it's so fucking easy. My dad ran a 50-mile trail run in the rain. His toenails fell off. And he's like, 'I don't know, I'm worried about your voice.' He ran for 11 hours in the rain. All I'm doing is sitting down, drinking."
