Mayors Glover, Walker vie for title of Guitar Hero champion

SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - Shreveport Mayor Cedric Glover and Bossier City Mayor Lo Walker faced off in a battle to see who was the twin city's Guitar Hero.

They shed their mayoral duties for a short time to become rock stars in a Guitar Hero showdown.

After their jam session, we asked the mayors how they felt about the friendly competition with one of the world's most popular video games.

"I had no idea what I was doing," admitted Glover. "It was real interesting and I hope to get a chance to do it again."

"Well, I'm going to concede to Mayor Glover," said Walker. "I thought he was the swinging-est ... it's his city and I'm going to concede that he won the battle."

All of this fun was to help kick off the James Burton International Guitar Festival, which started Thursday night and continues through Sunday.
