Guitar World Gear Editor Paul Riario Appears in Bizarre Video

Guitar World gear editor Paul Riario, who has made a career out of not sharing important information with his coworkers, has been exposed as the acoustic guitar-strumming busker in a new video from the band the Bad Eliots. The video, for the song "Cat's Meow (Give It To Me Now)," shows the band, with instruments in hand and boxes on their heads, invading a crowded New York City subway and performing the song live before the stunned crowd of straphangers.

Upon his return from Winter NAMM 2009, Riario will have to explain his mysterioso behavior to the rest of the Guitar World staff. Stay tuned for details.
