Kerry King, legendary guitarist for the notorious thrash metal band SLAYER and a B.C. Rich guitar endorser, is making in-store appearances at select B.C. Rich retailers while on the 2009 Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival. The special events are co-sponsored by EMG pickups.
Video footage from the July 23, 2009 signing session at Guitar Center in Atlanta, Georgia can be viewed below (courtesy of "monkeyhat3").
The tour started on July 10 in Sacramento, California and concludes August 15 in Dallas, Texas.
King is scheduled to visit 11 retail locations, where he is expected to talk with fans and sign autographs.
Kerry King has played B.C. Rich guitars since the early 1980s. In January, B.C. Rich introduced four new signature guitars created in collaboration with the guitarist. Each new instrument offers finishes, features and tones approved by King himself.
The Mayhem tour will feature SLAYER on the Main Stage along with co-headliner MARILYN MANSON.
