Happy Monday, Swagvillians!

It’s time for another installment of Music Monday.  On this day (January 6) in 1958, Gibson guitars launched its ‘Flying V’ electric guitars which soon became an iconic symbol of Rock ‘n Roll.

One the most famous musicians to rock the Flying V was a personal favorite of mine, Jimi Hendrix.  And while it’s hard for me to pick my favorite Jimi song, Red House is definitely near the top of my list.  Watch and listen below as Jimi nails it with his slick, black Flying V!

Today’s Music Monday Trivia Question:  Which movie popularized the Flying V (in a non musical way) and in which state does the film take place? 

We have our winners!  Congrats to ioretrofantasy, DOGE69 and cfrane!  The brilliant film, The Mighty Ducks taught us how to skate and use the Flying V and it was set in Minnesota!
