Guitar Hero Ace shreds his way into the record books again

By Shaun Conlin     Feb 12, 2009 in Entertainment
To celebrate the launch of the second annual Guinness World Records 2009 Gamer's Edition, the nation's best Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock player visited New York City for a mesmerizing, record-breaking shred session.
Danny Johnson recently reclaimed the Guinness World Record for the "Highest Score for a Single Song on Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock" with an astounding score of 973,954 points (a 99% completion rate on Expert Level) for the song "Through the Fire and Flames" by DragonForce.
The 14-year-old from Grapevine, Texas traded the record back and forth with former record holder Chris Chike for almost a year.
Johnson's nimble fingers have attracted over 2.5 million people to his YouTube videos and earned him countless fans. "Danny's ability is as breathtaking as it is unbelievable," said Guinness World Records judge Stuart Claxton, who was on hand to certify the attempt. "With music video games dominating the market right now, it's hard for players to stick out from the crowd. Danny does just that with his amazing speed and near-perfection."
