Scottsdale, AZ based guitar hero, Byron Nemeth, plans to commemorate Jimi Hendrix’s burial date of Oct. 1 1970 during his appearance at LA Amp Show Oct. 1 and 2.
Nemeth will be heading to the roof of the Airtel Plaza Hotel at approximately 4:20 pm to play The Star Spangled Banner as performed by Jimi Hendrix at Woodstock and to light a guitar on fire in Hendrix memory. ""Honoring Hendrix by replicating his very controversial rendition of the Star-Spangled Banner on electric guitar is the most important political rock statement that needs to be done today to wake people up to new music," says Nemeth. "This delivery of screaming guitar and ballistic feedback will shock and inspire listeners to a new vision of what modern rock should be instead of the watered down corporate drivel we have been forced feed in recent years."
Byron will be representing Moore Amps and the company’s new model Mooresound 1013 Amp Class A 20 Watt Single Channel All Tube Amplifier throughout the weekend.
