Today (Aug. 12) Will Be A Smashing Day For Guitarists

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Today (Aug. 12) should be a smashing day for guitarists in New York.

That’s because a new Hard Rock Cafe is opening in Times Square and the event will be celebrated with something called the “World’s Largest Guitar Smash.”

The chain traditionally christens each eatery by smashing a guitar but this attempt will be for the world record with guitarists breaking 100 different Gibson guitars starting at 10 a.m. EST.

Guitarists who will be striking their guitar against the ground include Brian Wilson, Steven Van Zandt and a New York street performer known as the “Naked Cowboy.”

Even more striking: For every guitar broken during the world record attempt, the Hard Rock will donate one to charities that promote peacemaking in schools.
