Musing on Air Guitar Anthems
Well I am disappointed. Hunchermuncher and I happened to flick channels to VH1 on Saturday night only to find that they were most of the way through 100 Greatest Air Guitar Anthems. We watched a bit but were going out to the cinema and switched off after about 4 tracks (and when Aerosmith got too much for us).
I was disappointed though. I would have liked to see th whole thing and I REALLY wanted to know what they chose as number one. Hunchermuncher guessed it would be Bohemian Rhapsody, but I thought that by rights it really should be Smoke on the Water.
So tonight i thought I would look for the list on the internet - but to no avail - I can find the programme listed but no list of the tracks anywhere as yet - grrrr.
One of the bands that we did see was Muse, who I didn't know much about. The track was called "Newborn" and I thoought it was excellent. The singer sounds a lot like Tom Yorke from Radiohead, very soulful but the it suddenly goes into some blistering guitar rock - really good - I am planning on checking out some of their other stuff soon!
