[tweetthis]#BOTB Results: BEETHOVEN, SYMPHONY NO. 5. See who won the May 15th Battle of the Bands[/tweetthis]
In the year I’ve been participating, this was one of the tightest battles ever! At first, it appeared that Takeshi would be the most popular, but then the votes for Alex starting tumbling in. Michele changed her vote from Alex to Takeshi and I was able to fix the app accordingly, but it still doesn’t jive completely with the comments. It looks like there was a mystery voter who didn’t say anything. Here’s how it went down:
Arlee, Michele, Shady, John, Angel Stew, Stephen, Yolanda, Jeffrey, Dolorah, Myke, Mystery voter
Cathy, Guilie, Cherdo, Mary B, Diedre, Birgit, Janie, Pat, Robin, Dixie, FAE
That’s right. Thanks to the phantom, we have a tie, so it’s up to me to break it.
Takeshi’s surf-style version was incredibly cool, especially, as Stephen pointed out, coming from a Japanese musician way back in 1967. That said, I’ve been a huge fan of Alex Masi’s for many years and am in awe of his musicianship. The nuances he coaxes out of his guitar are amazing! He’s my choice for the tie-breaker.
AND THE WINNER IS:
by 1 vote
Alex Masi’s versatility extends from classical to hard rock and metal. Enjoy!
