DJ Hero might inspire newcomers to the culture to pick up a turntable or two. But it's really a love letter to those of us who did grow up idolizing the DJ in the booth rather than the musician in the band. In DJ Hero you have a turntable and mixer, not a guitar and drums; and you play "mixes," not songs."
