According to Australia's The Age, Melbourne guitarists will attempt to break an 11-year Guinness World Record on Sunday (Oct. 29) by playing the classic riff to DEEP PURPLE's "Smoke on the Water".
To celebrate the Hard Rock Cafe's 10th birthday and raise funds for the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, budding guitarists are invited to come along to the Museum Plaza at Carlton's Royal Exhibition Building and join in playing the song.
Those Carlton residents who have recently opposed the Big Day Out at Princes Park shouldn't be too concerned — only acoustic guitars (and no amplifiers) will be allowed.
The current record for the largest assembly of guitarists playing one particular song (Taking Care of Business) is 1322 in Vancouver, Canada, in 1994. Entry is $5, register from 9am tomorrow.
