Battle of the Bands Result: The Classic Start the Battle Early and Post the Results Late

The Battle was early due to travel and it was either post early or have no battle for January. That would have been bad because after you take a month off, it becomes two and then eventually you just stop. At least that would be in my world. I do the Battle of the Bands because they are enjoyable to create and it is cool to listen to the other participants battles too.

The results are late because I haven't been online as much. One benefit about being offline is that I've been able to read quite a bit. I never thought I would be reading 10 plus books in a month. The downside of not being online is that it makes it hard to blog.

This battle was more experimental than others for me. I based it on a classical piece. The piece is more commonly associated with the piano so the first twist was making it a guitar battle. Then I twisted by competing a classical guitarist against a fully plugged rock legend. I prepared myself for the possibility of blowout like my December battles.  However, there was no blowout this time around. The battle was tight and was decided by the final vote. Michelle from Angels Bark voted for Jimmy Page and he is the winner.

I'll leave you with a live version of the tune...

I need to read more as well. I have several books that I need to read not to mention the hundreds more that I'd like to get read.

I'm almost surprised your battle was tight. I figured Jimmy's version would run away with this one.
