You may recall from last week's issue of Wyenot News an article
about the theft of Liam Lee-Hynes' bass guitar during the last
evening of the Ross-on-Wye Unintentional Festival. Unfortunately,
to date we have received no news as to the whereabouts of Liam's
instrument. It was also mentioned that on Tuesday, 7th September
Liam was taking his mind off things by taking part in a record
breaking fire breathing attempt.
record that he, along with Danny Lenihan, Benjamin Dew and sixty
six other people were trying to break was that of the largest
number of people simultaneously fire breathing for a period
of one minute.
spectacular event took place at Stonehenge at 8:30 pm and was
televised as part of the Guinness Book of Records' 50th anniversary.
The programme was broadcast on Saturday 11th September and included
various spectacular and occasionally grotesque record breaking
sitting through much of the show and suffering a whole episode
of 'The X Factor' (that's at least a beer you owe me, Dewi)
which was broadcast during a sixty eight minute long record
breaking Ice Bath, the event we were waiting to see finally
appeared on the screen with a full view of Benjamin Dew warming
are pleased to say that the record breaking attempt was successful
and will be published in the 2004 Guinness Book of Records.
us hope that the hunt for Liam's guitar is equally successful!
