Guitar Hero: Hendrix in the Works, Says Rolling Stone Interview

13
Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash has let slip that there will be a Guitar Hero title centered on 1969 Woodstock headliner and Greatest Guitarist of All Time Jimi Hendrix.

Slash, speaking on tribute games Guitar Hero: Metallica and Aerosmith, said to Rolling Stone: "Those are two ones that I think gives it some credibility. And they're doing a Hendrix one, which is great."

As one of the original Guitar Heroes, Slash speaks with authority and enthusiasm on how the real-world music industry interacts with the plastic-guitar-jamming franchise. "You have to understand how the game works and what band really fits in to that," explained Slash. "AC/DC is probably the top one. They don't need the boost, but that would be the top one," he added.

World Tour, the latest Guitar Hero title

Official confirmation of the game, or information on platforms or a release date, has yet to come from Guitar Hero series publisher Activision.

      Metallica said once they would never make a "music video" for MTV...cuz that seemed so corporate at the time.
