Rock star slags off Guitar Hero

Nothing like the real thing, says Mayer.

Guitar-playing American pop star John Mayer has had a go at Guitar Hero, arguing nothing can compare to playing a real musical instrument.

"I don't ever want to be the kind of guy who rails against whatever progress has taken place," he told Rolling Stone. "But Guitar Hero was devised to bring the guitar-playing experience to the masses without them having to put anything into it."

And he should know. "Having done both, there's nothing like really playing guitar. I mean, what would you rather drive, a Ferrari or one of those amusement-park cars on a track?"

Thanks for that, John. Could you also let us know if having a go of the real Jessica Simpson is better than fwapping over pictures of her on the Internet.
