Smoke on the Lyme Regis

Ian Gillan sang Smoke on the Water at the Guitars on the Beach festival in Lyme Regis, UK, this Saturday, September 6. BBC reports that he was joined by 3,325 guitarists, which didn’t quite beat the world record of 6,546 (helped to set by Steve Morse in Poland 2009), but only a national one. Local fishermen provided the smoke 😉

The event raised between £6,000 and £7,000 for local charities.

Thanks to Andrey Gusenkov (deep-purple.ru) for the info.

    We broke that record in Kansas City in 2007 as a grass roots effort–with NO celebrities present.
