The real reason you are here is to win a guitar! Yes, Tired Pony and MOG Music Network have teamed up to offer 1 winner a signed Fender Classic Series ’72 Telecaster Deluxe! How sweet is that axe? All you have to do is leave a comment (with valid email!) with your fantasy supergroup line-up! Is it Lars Ulrich on drums, Mark Hoppus on bass, Carlos Santana on guitar, and Katy Perry on xylaphone? Or maybe it’s a supergroup that wold actually make sense!Â Give us your line-up and tell us why your supergroup is the best! Be smart and be creative because I’ll be picking the best entry from The Burning Ear who will then go up against the best from 3 other sites. Tired Pony and MOG will then pick the winner from those 4 finalists.Â It’s not just about a guitar, it’s about TBE pride! Let’s represent team TBE and kick some ass here! Entries on TBE will be accepted until Tuesday 11/9 at midnight PST. The grand prize winner will be announced Friday 11/12!
Go forth and rock! I can’t wait to read the entries!
UPDATE: Maybe I wasn’t 100% clear but I will be picking the entry from TBE to go on to the finals. So I’ll tell you right now that just naming your supergroup’s lineup and saying oneÂ sentence of why is not going to cut it. THIS IS A BIG competition, act accordingly! As far as I’m concerned this is not just a test of musical nerdiness, but also of writing ability, creativity, humor, and overallÂ like-ability. I wan’t one of you guys to win so I will be selecting our finalist based not only on my personal opinion of their entry, but onÂ whetherÂ I think it has a shot at the title! Just so you know, our competition isÂ here and here.
Anyone who has already entered should feel free to add to their entry by just replying to it below. Let’s do this, people!
UPDATE 2: FINALISTS!!!
You all are a stubborn bunch (or you just don’t read)! After reading through the entries that bothered to include the ‘WHY’ with their ‘who’ I have chosen 3 finalists to move on and beÂ judgedÂ by MOG and Tired Pony. These are people who put together interesting and thoughtful combinations of people as well as explaining their choices convincingly. Congratulations and good luck to SROPER, Michael, and Â Flego_420! I hope one of you win and brings the glory home to The Burning Ear! The winner will be announced on Friday!
UPDATE 3: WINNER
The winner has been announced. Congratulations to Spencer whoÂ submittedÂ his excellent entry over at Live4Ever. Check it out here. We gotta step up our game next time, TBE!
