After Shannie’s post about big bad 80s hair I was shocked to learn, on CNN no less, that there are professional air guitarists…and a national champion to boot. Hello people – it’s 2008 not 1988 (which all of the pros look liked they stepped out of). Why oh why are the 80s styles making a comeback? Wasn’t it bad enough to live through the first time? Next thing I know I will see teenagers pegging their jeans and wearing those god awful Bass shoes with the laces knotted instead of tied. I could cry – seriously. Music is one thing, but fashion? Come on people!
And how exactly do you become a professional air guitarist? Do you get paid for it? If so, I want to be a pro headbanger….think I could get paid too?
