    Air Guitar

    I know many of you are guilty of playing air guitar, especially during your teenage years. Now, apparently, there are competitions just for you.

    Sweet! I used to play air guitar. My favorite was Van Halen's Jump. I would try and emulate David Lee Roth by jumping off the couch while playing air guitar.

    Lump of coal

    I asked for an air guitar for Christmas one year.
    Didn't get nothing.

    Do they have a subcategory for banging your head in along with the drums in Finnish death metal? I may enter!

    It was also a rerun on "just shoot me" this week. Huey Lewis and CC Deville(?) (from poison) were guest stars.

    I prefer air bass, John Entwistle eat you heart out.

    C-Diddy, the winner, was on Howard Stern a couple of days ago, very entertaining. I'd never heard air guitar on the radio until this week.

    Years ago I played air guitar in an air band that performed Dire Strait's "Money for Nothing" at summer parties.

    Sadly, we never got that recording contract we'd strived for. Perhaps we should have learned a second song?

    Yes, I have played air guitar in the past, even little shows for my friends here and there... But I STILL play air guitar nowadays.. As a matter of fact, I even played it today, along with the Dead Kennedys.... It is just like back in high school 15 years ago ... Life surprises me everyday. I surprise myself each day. I love it...

    Better have happened in Buffalo! I can see Nugent, Segar, Kid Rock, George Clinton and a whole bunch of old motown studio musicians going wild at the airport in protest!
