Symphony of destruction

The New York Times reports on 14-year-old Danny Johnson, who recently broke the record score on Guitar Hero III. He says he's busted 80 guitar controllers in nine months of intensive practice -- he broke the one he used to beat the record -- but his new sponsorship deal should pay for the next hundred at least.

Two best bits:
"When you’re hitting that many notes and playing that fast, it just terrorizes the controller," said Scott Johnson, 45, Danny’s father.
Danny, who plays piano, guitar, drums, saxophone and oboe in real life, said his Guitar Hero prowess made it easier to complete complicated sequences on an actual guitar.

Danny has his own YouTube channel run by his brother. Here he is pulling off 100% on 'The Devil Went Down To Georgia'. Watch and marvel.
