If you're thinking of becoming a competitive air guitarist, you'll need a really cool name: Bjorn Turoque, Hot Lixx Hulahan, The High Drator, Rickey Stinkfingers, Sonyk Rok and Windhammer are all taken, but you are free to adopt the monikers Shred Sullivan, Han Solo or Jammy Page. If ever the term attitude applied, it's at the U.S. Air Guitar 2010 Regional Competition-Los Angeles Regional, where mock stars take to the stage, armed with only their swagger, poses and hair. Mssrs. Turoque and Hulahan will be on hand. Enjoy the faux rippage and heavy mocking. And if you're a contestant, remember this rule: "All guitars must be invisible."
