Guitar Hero Guiness World Records Set

Feb 7, 2008

To celebrate the launch of the Guinness World Record Gamer’s Edition – the longest Guitar Hero Marathon Relay record was achieved, lasting over two hours and with 40 passes between songs!

The cast of the West End hit We Will Rock You, Sabrina Aloueche (Scaramouche), Ricardo Afonso (Galilleo), Alex Bourne (Khashgoggi) and ‘The Rev’ and Snell from The Prodigy kicked off the relay before passing on to professional gamers The Frag Dolls and Luke Albiges and then the very willing public.

Other records achieved on the night included the ‘Highest score’ on Guitar Hero by Luke Albiges with a tremendous 444,862 points! Plus the ‘Highest score by a team of six’ was achieved by Guitar Hero fan Saad Choudri, his 10 year old little brother Adam and friends with an incredible 127,067 points.

Over 200 people attended the launch event dressed as their favourite ‘rock Star’ and jammed on Guitar Hero. Lisa Lehmann brought a group of American scouts to test their Guitar Hero skills, she said ‘the boys have had a terrific time and are very excited to have broken a Guinness World Record’.

Tony Macgee won first prize as the best dressed ‘Guitar Hero’ with his impressive ‘Slash’ costume.

The all new Guinness World Records Gamer’s Edition 2008 is on sale now and is bursting with new records, high score statistics and fascinating facts.
