Local 13-Year-Old Now Holds Guitar Hero World Record. Or Does He?

Turns out that last week's 24-hour Guitar Hero III fund-raiser, during which Mayor Tom displayed the most awkward rock moves in this history of fake plastic guitars, was good for more than raising money. Word's circulating this a.m. that a 13-year-old from Grapevine, Daniel Johnson, set a Guinness World Record for high score on a single song when he racked up 890,971 points on the very freakin' difficult song “Through the Fire and Flames” by Dragonforce set to Expert -- on his first attempt, no less. Only, shades of The King of Kong: Fistful of Quarters, some folks don't believe it without video evidence. Which is a good point. I guess. I have other questions, though, most concerning homework. --Robert Wilonsky
