More than 1,680 guitarists broke a world record by playing Deep Purple classic SMOKE ON THE WATER simultaneously yesterday (03Jun07). Guitar players from around the world flocked to Kansas City, Kansas to play the 1972 rock track at the same time in order to break a Guinness world record. The previous record was set by 1,323 people playing Smoke On The Water in Vancouver, Canada in 1994. A preliminary count of those taking part came to 1,683 - this number and the world record are still to be officially confirmed.
