Q: While playing at Hollywood's Palladium in 1972, the guitarist in Chuck Berry's backup band was replaced by another one waiting backstage. The new musician played so loudly that Berry stopped in the middle of a song and asked the first guitar player to come back out. Who was the guitar player he kicked off the stage?
A: Keith Richards! This week's one and only correct answer came from Ed Kachajian. Ed takes home a copy of Guitar And Drum Trainer courtesy of Ryan Smith over at RenegadeMinds.com.
See you next week!
