Playing Lead Guitar for Regis & Kelly

There's nothing like consumer electronics to get you into the holiday spirit. So to get into the mood I did a couple of segments on LIVE with Regis & Kelly on Tuesday (December 4).

Running through 20 different gift ideas from HD TVs to remote controls on a live show with a studio audience is a challenge. But the whole crew–including about 20 stage hands moving sets and equipment around–was great. From a state-of-the-art Pioneer plasma to MTV Games' Rock Band, Regis & Kelly played along. Even though I had to follow Ben Affleck and the shirtless Mario Lopez…

For folks looking for a complete rundown on the products and gift ideas, I'll be posting a complete list at this week, including items we missed because the show was heavy (Turtle Beach Ear Force headphones that Kelly really liked and Guitar Hero III, which I was going to play for them, honest).

To kick out the show, the R, K, and JQ trio played "Mississippi Queen" on Rock Band with Regis on drums, Kelly on vocals (she knows all the lyrics!), and your's truly on lead guitar. I was the one who didn't need a wig.
