on screen is Richard Benson his guitar
playing is infamous for its lack of coherence some YouTube videos showed him
playing his solos in a professional or instructional environment he is described by many as the worst guitarist ever
he can be seen playing live for the audience so disgusted by
what in Europe we can do bombardment for the worse items he can get hold why would someone put himself through
this is this man genuinely the worst guitar stagg what’s his story
let’s try and find out start
while the star yeah Richard Philip Henry John Benson was
born March 10 1955 in Woking England in 1965 at age 10 his family moved to Italy at the start of the seventies he formed
a progressive rock band called from Vecchio Charlie their self-titled LP
remained in limbo until a release over 20 years later 1972 he performed at the
Villa Pam fili festival in Italy 1983 sub bands release his first record
animal zoo and in 1984 his second renegade throughout this video you can
hear Richard Benson’s music Richard Benson was – producer and curator for
the 1987 release metal attack compilation album intended for the
Italian market next Isla de Manson’s career was a role in the 1992 Italian
comedy damn today I met you a rom-com where he appears playing himself Richard
Benson throughout the 1990s Benson would also
release another record play concerts around Rome and produce instructional de
tar videos in one of these videos you can be seen discussing chord
progressions and melody while teaching his son
Adagio melodica mm or mantle recoveries in the West you can clearly play guitar and
understands musical concepts perhaps he can play slow but when he
tries to speed up things get messy okay obviously you can play so where did
the bat playing angry crowd and worst guitarist ever come into play well it
turns out Richard Benson suffers from chronic arthritis in both hands unless
you’ve experienced or witnessed arthritis personally you can’t really
understand the implications it’s not an old person complaining about their hip
like in the cartoon it’s not a minor inconvenience that causes bones to click
once in a while it can be agonizing bringing endless pain and can be
life-changing in some cases result in reduced motion swelling in the affected
area becoming out of shape some arthritis can affect other organs
and lead to further complications such as losing the ability to walk or use of
your hands comparing Benson’s performance of Adagio
to a more recent one reveals how bad his condition is and how his plane had
deteriorated you I look at the shape of his hands in this
performance they’re uncomfortable unnatural
asami so easily once played has become noise bum notes and embarrassment in 2001 he
from the pond deceased or bridge in Rome resulting in severe injuries
some speculate this may have been a suicide attempt due to the pain of his
condition and the issues it was causing in his life and for his guitar playing he wouldn’t surface again until 2004
where he started to appear on TV and perform live again this is where his bad guitar playing
would become known around the world show generally consist of Benson being helped
to his chair while the audience throw objects at him once he sits down he plays through his
set while being hit with various messy objects occasionally he will comment on
the more bizarre objects such as a chicken you would also appear on Italian TV
Garin angry is the host dancing gets very distressed that they’re making fun star
and they continue until he eventually breaks down Benson for the next couple of episodes they
would find a ways to trick him to listen to the song again
in 1z Lister would dress up as a rockstar stereotype to fool Benson
before singing Cuchillo again burning hey boys girls
I’m Richard Benson and this is my new recorder it’s called do a low Martha
Raye I won guitar Wars in Los Angeles and battle of beasts in Philadelphia as
a most fastest guitarist in the world other of bizarre events include Benson
in one of his very few English videos claiming that David Bowie’s last
performance before his death is featured on his record and there his management
is the same as Madonna and Michael Jackson you can get my new record – ello
madre through iTunes and many other portable internet devices Richard Benson
is physically disabled in sick various videos in online such as his breakdowns
and claims show possible mental health issues
I contacted Benson to get his input but unfortunately I never had answers to my
questions I can confirm from vance’s wife and
friends that Richard Benson is ill he’s been suffering with heart disease for a
few years has been undergoing major surgery he’s received two heart stents
at the time of research for this video Benson is hospitalized mana fans and
their blessings they say Richard Benson is worst
guitarist after ridiculed online bullied and harassed everywhere he goes the thinker really is a crippled man
expressing himself through the miracle of sound despite all obstacles in the
way for the people who yell spit bully and throw things are sick men
why is your band have to endure his treatment continue playing music and what kind of world do we live for
this behavior and treatment towards Benson is even acceptable he’s already
lost many things don’t take music away from him
support him let him continue his journey it may be what’s captain go or maybe he’s purely satirical fully
aware reveling in the joke Tommy Wiseau of music you will probably never know
