Today’s must-read: Air guitar hero
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.
