AC/DC, Megadeth get drum treatment
156 musicians play rock and metal classics in Brazil – while Children Of Bodom's Laiho invites 100 guitarists onstage in Finland
A total of 156 drummers of all ages gathered in Sao Paulo, Brazil last week to play tracks by AC/DC and Megadeth.
Blabbermouth reports that the project was conceived by drum tutor Dino Verdade, who brought together the ensemble for Bateras 100% Brasil. Their aim is to get as many people as possible to enjoy the experience of playing together.
They played along to AC/DC’s You Shook Me All Night Long and Megadeth’s Symphony Of Destruction, which were performed by a live band featuring ex Sepultura sticksman Jean Dolabella.
Meanwhile, Children of Bodom’s Alexi Laiho invited 100 guitarists onstage at the Helsinki festival in Finland at the weekend, where they played a track specially written by Laiho for the event.
Last month, 1000 Foo Fighters fans gathered in Italy to play the band’s Learn To Fly to entice the band to play a show in Cesena.
