Texas Teen Breaks Guiness Record

BY Andrew Miesner / February 5, 2009

Danny Johnson, a 14 year old boy from Texas, broke the Guiness Book of World Record’s record for Guitar Hero and has been crowned the king of Guitar Hero.  Guiness held the World Record challenge in a Manhattan Best Buy earlier this week.  Danny, arriving only a day before the event, tried his luck against the former champions and beat the previous world record score by nearly 75,000 points.  The challenge was with probably the most infamous song of our time, Through the Fire and Flames by Dragonforce.  Danny managed to score 973,954 points while scoring a 99% on the song in the finals.

When asked about his record breaking performance, Danny simply stated “All I can say is, records are meant to be broken.”  Cocky, but successful – the mentality of a champion.
