"Hair guitar? Count me in!" - David Bowie performs 'Rebel Rebel'.
You love bands when they're playing hard...
Brian May of Queen is the man behind a new compilation out on Virgin this week, entitled: 'The Best Air Guitar Album in the World...Ever!' The Queen axeman was more than qualified to compile this double CD of classic rock anthems...and he has the hair to boot! One of the 41 songs on the album is the full length album version of David Bowie's 1974 Glampunk prototype, 'Rebel Rebel'.
Other tracks range from old standard's we all know and love (in a post-modern, ironic sort of way in some cases obviously) such as 'Voodo Chile', 'My Generation', 'Paranoid', '20th Century Boy', 'Freebird', 'Smoke On The Water' (the riff to which even Rednik has mastered!), 'Wild Thing' and 'You Really Got Me'...through the sublime 'Ace Of Spades' and the wigged-out insanity of 'Wipe Out'...to relative new boys such as Blur, Foo Fighters, Robbie Williams, Wheatus, and Weezer.
For those of you that can't quite work out the what the flash in the top left of the CD cover below says, it is: "Free Air Guitar Inside!"...a double CD and a free air guitar for a mere fifteen quid. Now that's what I call a bargain.
