Something's In the Air
It was Joe Cocker’s spastic performance at Woodstock in 1969 that launched what is now considered to some, a respectable art form know as Air Guitar. For those of you who have been living under a rock, Air Guitar is playing guitar to music, except your guitar is made of air instead of wood, resins, frets and strings.
Cocker, by the way, I believe was the only air guitarist to actually play an air bass guitar. All the other Johnny Come Lately air guitarist opt for the six string.
It’s not that I have a lot to say about the air guitar performances or competitions, but I do wonder why there are no air drummers or pianists. How about an air cello? How about an air orchestra? There is plenty of music and air to go around. There are endless air music possibilities out there all waiting for exploitation. Why is it just guitar that comes up air worthy?
