Aerosmith's Steven Tyler and Joe Perry talked to USA Today's Mike Snider about the plans for their new Guitar Hero: Aerosmith game.
"Q: Can you tell me how this video game came about?
Joe Perry: I walked through the den where we have the video games usually set up and I noticed the controller had an oddly familiar shape and I heard some rockin' music and I said, "What's going on? What is this?" (His youngest son) Roman explained it to me and I played it a little bit and said, 'This is fantastic. Do they have any AEROSMITH songs on it?' And the first game didn't. …I called my manager and said, "This is fantastic. How come we're not involved in this?" And ever since then, I've been pushing to be as involved in the game and the movement as well."
