Your favourite band is live in concert and suddenly few among the packed audience turn on their phone torches and start waving it in the air in rhythm. You’ve seen this happening before with lighters and matchsticks, and in the many recorded concerts such as Woodstock and Glastonbury, and suddenly you’re left wondering about the roots of this tradition.
It is tough to really point out where it all began, but Zippo Lighters definitely had a starring role in this movement. Apart from music where it graced several album covers such as Bob Marley’s Catch A Fire and was actually used by Jimi Hendrix and Syd Barrett of Pink Floyd to produce unique sounds from the electric guitar, the original windproof Zippo Lighter has featured in over 1,500 Hollywood and Broadway shows. Besides, it has also served as a key tool to Allied soldiers in World War II and then again in Vietnam, in all paving its way to becoming a cultural icon closely associated with Americana.
In India, Zippo Lighters has decided to continue this tradition in association with Rock On!! 2. The Farhan Akhtar starrer is a sequel to the popular movie of the same name that features a close group of friends who get together and re-kindle their love for music after splitting up their band years before.
