Lawrence Magazine interviewed 2014 World Champion Mean Melin the other day, presumably on top of a mountain, possibly in the vicinity of a small brushfire. He handed down to them 10 11 Commandments of Air Guitar, which are now graven on the stone tablets of the internet for you to take to heart. Because of course it goes to 11.
