Inventor of the Air Guitar, Hector Peckert has died during a solo sex game that somehow went wrong, according to sources in Nagales, Arizona, where he was found dead as a peckertwood on Friday.
The body of Peckert was discovered in a hotel room where, according to his autobiography, he first came upon the idea of the first air guitars in 1968, starting with a much more basic air guitar than today's $1,000 to $10,000 creations.
Local reports suggested he had committed suicide, but longtime friends and fans say "No Way!"
Peckert was discovered by a novice at the air guitar, who had came over with three friends for a jam session, after he opened the closet door to see if Peckert had any extra air guitar strings.
"Boy did he ever!", stated the shaky-voiced James Hendricks. "He had air guitar strings from his neck to his dong and right on down to his big toes."
However, Arizona police suggestions that his death had a sexual twist were strongly disputed by the star's close friend, James Morrason, and his manager Bryan Joan, who insisted he died of natural causes.
Still, later today, a statement from Peckert's representatives now indicate that the inventor of the Air Guitar died during a sex act.
"We can now confirm 100 per cent that he never would have committed suicide. It was an accidental death. Everybody is in shock."
Roomers nearby who had complained at the air guitars noise the night before from their rooms, say that Peckert had come home around 3PM with an arm load of boxes of air guitar strings. They now agree that Peckert, or "Peckert" as his friends called him, died while attempting auto-erotic asphyxiation - where victims achieve heightened sexual pleasure by restricting their 'air supply' - are backed up by a quote a Nagales police officer gave to The National Inquisitor.
"His peckert killed him."
The cop then told reporters, "Several air guitar strings were attached to his neck and also to his penis".
"How will we ever play 'Free Bird' or 'Stairway To Heaven' on air guitar again without thinking about Peckert?", asked Hendricks. Then, he suddenly picked up his air guitar and slowly began playing a solo version of "The Star-Spangled Banner".
