2,000 GUITARISTS ATTEMPT TO ACHIEVE A NEW LEVEL OF STUPIDITY
On June 3, 2007, 2,000 guitarists of all ages and skill will gather at Community America Ballpark in Kansas City for the largest ensemble performance of the same song in history. Should the attempt succeed, it will break a world record which has stood since 1994.
Representatives from Guinness will be on hand to verify the record has been broken. Celebrity guitarists will also be participating in the history making event.
The song of choice for the event is “Smoke on the Water”, made famous by the band DEEP PURPLE. “The first song everyone learns on guitar is ‘Smoke on the Water’, so we thought this would be a good song to try and break the record with,” Max Floyd said.
Listening to five monkeys banging on instruments at Guitar Center is enough to give me an ear-splitting headache. The thought of 2,000 whackjobs… makes me want to Run to the Hills.
