GoPro Video: Megadeth's Kiko Loureiro Plays "Holy Wars"

Megadeth guitarist Kiko Loureiro attached a GoPro camera to his guitar's headstock before the band's recent appearance at Chicago's Aragon Ballroom.

Below, you can see what "Holy Wars" looks (and sounds) like from this unique point of view.

If you're really into the "GoPro camera on a guitar" thing, be sure to check out a GoPro performance by Brad Paisley (where he actually uses the camera as a slide) and a GoPro gear demo by Eddie Van Halen.

Megadeth's Dave Mustaine was Guitar World's April 2016 cover star.

Damian is editor-in-chief of Guitar World magazine. From 1998 to 2014, he was one third of Mister Neutron, an instrumental rock act that toured the universe and elsewhere and released three albums via Austin-based Deep Eddy Records. These days he performs with several New York City-area bands and can often be spotted with one of his many, many, many B-bender-equipped guitars. In past lives he was GW’s managing editor and online managing editor – and he still can’t believe he got to write the liner notes for the latest SRV box set.
