Dan Crane was once a bored software producer. Then he discovered air guitar. A true testament to the liberating power of the invisible ... all » instrument, air guitar was the catalyst that allowed Crane to leave his day job behind and pursue his dream of being a writer. Since then, his writing has appeared in the New York Times, Slate, Esquire and the Los Angeles Times. He is also the star of the award-winning documentary Air Guitar Nation, and performs as Jean-Luc Retard in a faux French rock and roll band known as Nous Non Plus.

Björn Türoque (pronounced Bjorn too-ROCK) has participated in numerous air guitar competitions throughout the world. Since joining the circuit, he and his air guitar have appeared on CNN, VH1, Late Night with Conan O'Brien, Last Call with Carson Daly, Fox & Friends, in a Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure special edition DVD, and in a Japanese girl band's music video directed by Doug Aitken. He's lectured on the subject at the Experience Music Project museum in Seattle, and is the founder of Aireoke: when air guitar meets karaoke.

Björn's heroes are guitarist Jimmy Page, sculptor Richard Serra, and philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche. Björn retired from official competition in 2005
