Bio [TOP]

Marcus Henderson is a critically acclaimed rock and heavy metal guitarist from the San Francisco Bay area and has worked hard for years to make himself a respected name in the music community.

Henderson began making his mark with metal bands such as Drist and Hellbillys before moving on to session work with artists such as En Vogue and Simon Stinger. This would lay the groundwork for some of his most important work in 2005 where he was chosen to take the reigns as lead guitarist for the popular video game series, Guitar Hero. Here he recreated the sounds and styling’s of guitarists from Megadeth, Bad Religion, Ozzy Osbourne, The Ramones and Pantera amongst dozens of others.

Following the release of Guitar Hero II and its world-wide success, Henderson donated his White Flying V guitar he used during the making of the game to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio where it remains on permanent display next to guitars played by Jonny Cash, Joe Strummer and James Burton

After the world-wide success of Guitar Hero, Guitar Hero II and Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the 80s; with over 30 million copies of the games sold, Marcus worked with Epiphone to produce his own signature guitar, The Apparition where he could now share his unique sound with the world. After the release of his guitar, Marcus began taking his trademark sound and style to the masses where he toured guitar shops all over America, conducting full-band guitar clinics for kids and adults alike. During this time, Marcus also endorsed companies including Digitech, Dean Markley, Morley, EMG and Krank Amplification.

Upon completion of his first round of clinics in 2009, Henderson completed his filming of the guitar instructional video, “Rock Guitar Heroics” available through Hal Leonard Publishing.

It wasn’t long before the Henderson name would grace the credits of a music-related video game once again. Most recently, Marcus teamed up with Realta Entertainment for the November 19, 2013 release of BandFuse: Rock Legends.  

What's next for this San Fran Man of Mystery? Well it can't be said...because then it wouldn't be mystery. And no matter how you cut it, that's just not mysterious.

High Scores: [TOP]

Guitar Hero 1-3 - I played the shit out of this game early on medium level. I found that hard was just a little too much work for my fingers and I didn't want to fucking blow a knuckle out trying to get a high score when I can easily get much more frustration out of a real guitar.

RockBand - I didn't play a lot of rock band because of the time I was going to burnt a little guitar Hero overload but I love the idea of adding instruments and completing the band. Harmonix pushed the envelope of this game and I love to see what the future holds for rhythm games in general, if indeed a future exists.:\

BandFuse: Rock Legends - I put a lot of my heart into this one. Check it out if you get a chance.

Lego Star Wars - Great game to play baked out of your gourd. Grab a bud a do this! 
Beavis and Butthead for Sega Genesis - I finally finished this one couple years ago with a buddy of mine and it's way harder than it looks. You need a lot of help from the Internet and some of the puzzles are pretty cryptic but seeing GWAR is the sweetest reward in 90's video game history.

Madden '97 -  I consider myself one of the best in the county at this particular version of this game and I know I'm totally unbeatable on any given day. At one point I could routinely throw for like a 1000 yards in a game, come back from 56 point down with a quarter and a half left. Heroic shit like that. who was my team? Forty Fuckin' Niners as always.
