Austin guitarist David DiDonato started playing at 7pm on Sunday night, at Red 7, and beat the Guinness record for longest guitar solo last night. The record previously stood at 24 hours and 18 minutes, but even after he broke it, DiDonato, formerly of punk band J Church, kept playing, clocking in at nearly 25 hours.

I can't even imagine what sort of freaky thoughts were going through his head about 12 hours in. Guinness allows for five-minute breaks but damn, you've got to go through the whole spectrum of emotions out there, alone, soloing. Sort of like this event over the weekend. Congrats, David. Hope you are hibernating somewhere peaceful.
