Kaki King on Dave Grohl's "Rock Star Moves"

So Kaki has been touring with the Foo recently and at the Outside Lands Festival she spoke with Rolling Stone about his cheesy rock n roll moves. Link to the Rolling Stone Article to See Video

Now the two have also been joining the stage together for Ballad of the Beaconsfield Miners...an instrumental Dave Grohl wrote for the miners involved in the Beaconsfield Mine in Australia Colapse. He learned one of them was a Foo Fan and wrote the song prior to a meeting with the miner. The song is on their latest album Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace, Kaki King appears on the album version as well.Just a tid bit of knowledge for those who are curious.

Anyways, watch the two of them perform at O2 Arena in London on November 18, 2007

American Wins World Air Guitar Championships

Okay first off who has heard of this championship? Not me, until now...American Air Rocker Hot Lixx Hulahan...I'm hoping thats a stage name, beat 20 other contendors to become the 2008 World Air Guitar Champion, the Championship is in it's fifth year now.

Well we've all jammed on our air guitar during our favorite rock and jam solos. If you haven't you might be lying, but that's okay. I'll shamelessly admit I also sing in my car and play drums on my steering wheel or desk or lap or you, but nobody seems to play air guitar like this American...maybe you can get ready for next years championship! By the way have you seen the Air Guitar Shirt? Make your fantasy a reality, that video is below this one.

What's your favorite song to play air guitar on?

Covering the New River

Okkervil River, that is. As they get ready to release their new album The Stand Ins the band got all creative. Or rather they made their friends get creative and cover all the tracks from the album that will be out on September 9th.
Rather than making a whole new album of the covers these songs are available on Okkervil Rivers YouTube Channel.
Lead singer Will Sheff pairs up with A.C. Newman of the New Pornographers for this version of "Lost Coastlines."

So tell me what you think, I mean, is this a cool way for the band to share their upcoming songs or do you think they should be sharing the original versions first?
