asklansky2008sf-a1-150x150One more reason to love Alameda: We’re home to the defending World Air Guitar champ, Craig Billmeier, aka Hot Lixx Hulihan.

Billmeier, 35, is a longtime, local musician, and he’s played with a succession of punk and hardcore bands, the Valley Times’ Eric Louie reports. But a few years ago he decided as a lark to compete in the World Air Guitar championships. He won in 2006 and reclaimed his title in 2008, Louie reports. And he’ll be defending his title again at this year’s competition in Finland, after completing a 24-city tour with the U.S. Air Guitar Championships.

Billmeier’s air guitar site is here, if you’re interested, and you can check him out in action on YouTube.
