RNR News and Notes

What would you do if one day you received a box full of your uncle's bones - who died 20 years ago?  


Well - if you're metal head Prince Midnight - you'd pay tribute to your metal-loving late uncle and turnthe skeleton into an actual working guitar. 





OK - so there's a little more to the story -


Prince's uncle Filip died in a car accident two decades ago and his bones were medically prepared and rendered (at his request) and then donated to a local college for educational purposes.


Twenty years later - when the school no longer had use for the bones - Mr Midnight (who we might mention is a Florida Man) filed, re-filed, and re-re-filed paperwork with the Greek authorities to acquire the remains - and he finally got them.  


But now what to do with them? 


“I got the box of bones from Greece and didn’t know what to do at first..Bury them? Cremate them? Put them in the attic? All seemed like poor ways to memorialize someone who got me into heavy metal. So, I decided to turn Uncle Filip into a guitar, which proved to be challenging. I did a lot of research and no-one has ever made a guitar out of a skeleton. So, I did it.”


And yes - the guitar “plays perfect and sounds awesome” 




I wonder if Prince would do a metal version of The Human Bones song?
