Slash Leaks Guitar Hero: Hendrix?

1UP writes: "In a Rolling Stone interview with Slash, the legendary guitarist discussed his new solo project, his random sexual conquests at a David Bowie concert, and -- here's the kicker -- a potential Jimi Hendrix-focused Guitar Hero.

Referring to the evolution of the Guitar Hero brand since he was featured in Guitar Hero III, Slash said the following:

"Well, having the Aerosmith guys do it was very cool 'cause Aerosmith's one of the bands I was heavily influenced by. And Metallica's doing it, that's great. Those are two ones that I think gives it some credibility. And they're doing a Hendrix one, which is great."

Now, this statement should be taken with more than a grain of salt. Remember that this is a musician we're talking about -- not an Activision representative -- and he may simply be referring to the inclusion of Hendrix's music and likeness in Guitar Hero World Tour. After all, it's not like it's his job to be totally clued-in on game industry happenings. We'll try and get a comment from Activision sometime today."

The story is too old to be commented.

Hopefully the guitars are flame resistant.

if any of you know about the problems up with hendrix rights to his music.

you'll know it well be the same songs of jimi you hear on the radio if they even make the game knowing his sister she'll charge so much they well only have to use his first lp or his top 5 hits.

sad day for hendrix fans when he is put in a game with out his choosing of songs.
