MAY 11, 2005 -- He's Wilmington's famous piano man and now the Guinness Book of World Records is officially recognizing Tim Buie as a record holder.

Buie broke the world record for playing the piano 61 hours and three minutes straight back in February.

It was certainly hard earned. The month before, Buie thought he had broken the record when he played for more than 54 hours, only to find out the record actually belonged to a pianist in Hungary.

Buie tells News 6 many other people have attempted to break his record, but no one has succeeded.
