Watch 457 Guitarists Try To Break The World Record Covering AC/DC!


457 musicians converged on AC/DC’s hometown, Sydney, Australia, to attempt to set the record for th “Largest Electric Guitar Ensemble” and they chose possibly one of the best rock anthems of all time, Highway to Hell! Footage of the record-breaking rock out is available below…

According to Mashable, the 457 guitarists attempted to break the present record which was set back in 2013 when 368 guitarists gathered in India to play “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door.” The event in Sydney took place over the weekend and it has therefore not been officially declared the record as it stands. Guinness can take up to six weeks to confirm the results of a record-setting attempt.

The attempt happened during the Sydney Guitar Festival, with all proceed raised going to the Australian Children’s Music Foundation, which offers music education classes and instruments for disadvantaged kids.

Meanwhile, it’s been reported that in Vancouver an AC/DC fan spotted and spoke with both drummer Phil Rudd and guitarist Stevie Young from the band. The meeting happened in the Canadian city over last week as speculation is ongoing over the status of the Australian band.

Writing on his Ear of Newt blog, Newton writes, “There’s been a lot of rumour and speculation flying around the music world since I posted on the Georgia Straight website. The assumption was that, since AC/DC had recorded its last three albums here at Warehouse Studio, it might be in the midst of making – or at least planning – another one, this time with Rudd back in the lineup on drums.” Newton added, “I have complete faith in my source, who says he saw – and actually chatted with – the two Aussie rockers. Why the hell would he contact me out of the blue and lie about it?”  You can watch our Nova video of proof on that story here!
