VIDEO OF THE DAY: NITRO “FREIGHT TRAIN”

40

NITRO represented the peak of glam-metal ridiculousness. Frontman Jim Gillette‘s chief claim to fame was his ability to achieve a scream so high-pitched and piercing that it literally shattered the imported crystal wine goblets he carried on-stage for each performance, while guitarist Michael Angelo was famed for inventing the Double V-Neck guitar. In Nitro he pushed the concept to its illogical extreme with the Quad Guitar X-400 (featured in this video), an axe with four necks in an X formation, each featuring seven strings. This video is completely ridiculous; yet totally awesome.
