RedOctane mourns the death of 'air guitar'

r.i.p.
RedOctane recently held a Guitar Hero II PR stunt mock cremation service for its dearly departed predecessor 'air guitar.' Slash, Buddy Holly, and Ace Frehley -- at least the cheapest look-alikes RedOctane could score in East London -- filled in as pallbearers. Since no funeral parlor would disgrace its reputation by hosting such a preposterous mingle, the gang said "goodbye" in a Shoreditch art studio. "People generally took it seriously," observed RedOctane's Dave Noble.

Multiple sightings of the departed have since been reported.
