Edinboro 5/8/74 is a contender for longest ever. I don't know how long the whole version is, but FZ's solo runs over 11 minutes.

Yes, but that chicken was for distance. You don't measure time and distance with the same instruments, so I repeat.....a time-chicken?

or, were you thinking of a Swiss Army Chicken?

Sheesh that would be one BIG record cause we all know that a record can only hold 20 minutes on each side.
