Scott Hannah won the Grand Prize in our Beatallica contest, an autographed guitar. Here’s what he had to say, and a great pic of his son holding onto that guitar for dear life (Another rockstar in the making, eh?).
I wanted to extend to you my thanks for the wonderful surprise I received in the mail the other day. I happened to be the grand prize winner of a Beatallica signed Dean ML X guitar from House of Hair and Beatallica.
I must admit, until last July, I had never heard of Beatallica. I had entered this contest hoping to win this guitar, regardless who had signed it. In July I received in the mail a copy of “Sgt. Hetfield’s Motorbreath Pub Band” and thought, okay this is all I won, and being a fan of both Metallica and the Beatles, I’ll give it a listen. I was blown away! You guys were awesome! Your album is smart, funny, and highly entertaining. I now have it in rotation on my iPod. Wishing to know more about your group, I visited your website and eventually found my way to Jeffrey James’s Beatallica Twist and Mosh Tour 2007. I was rewarded with an entertaining behind-the-scenes look at your band and European tour. It brought to mind the trips I made to Europe, and at this time of year, made me yearn for those big Bavarian beers!
I want you to know that this signed guitar is a prized item and will hold a place of honor in my collection (actually, it’s the only one in my collection, but you have to start somewhere.) I hope to hear more from your group, or better yet, see more of your group if you happen to make it out to Seattle to do a show. In the mean time, I’ll keep spinning your disc, singing your praises, and admiring my new Dean guitar – if I can prize it from my young son’s hands (see attached photo.) He intends to be rock star himself.
