Beside fingerprints, pictures and signatures of great and illustrious artists as Carlos Santana, Eric Clapton, Steve Vai, George Martin, Jimmy Page, Iron Maiden, Johnny Cash and bands like Queen, AC / DC and Aerosmith.
Fher Olvera, Sergio Vallin, Alex Gonzalez and Juan Calleros, went back into his favorite store this once proud of all they have achieved throughout your career.
Remembering old times and as a child with new shoes, Fher looks back and says: "Long ago we came here with little money saved to buy our guitars, as a child goes to a toy store. Now happens this great honor and unite us impressive artists. As Latinos and Mexicans are proud to share it with the fans and the people who believed in the band".
Drummer Alex Gonzalez yet keep his feet on the ground thanks to Guitar Center tribute and treat them with dignity because to them it's like a dream, in the same way that when a novice four members of a Mexican rock group began a journey that has taken them far, specifically the Olympus of Rock in Los Angeles. "It is so important that shops there to help musicians who have the same dreams as us".
