Guitar Hero: Hendrix on the way

Slash suggests so in interview.

Legendary dead guitarist Jimi Hendrix is set to get his very own Guitar Hero game.

That's according to former Guns n' Roses man Slash, speaking in an interview with Rolling Stone.

Slash said it was he who inspired Aerosmith frontmant Steven Tyler to get involved with Guitar Hero: "He called me about it before they did it and I was like, 'You gotta do it,'" he explained. Aerosmith, of course, went on to get their own themed Guitar Hero title.

"And Metallica's doing it, that's great," Slash continued. "And they're doing a Hendrix one, which is great."

Activision has yet to confirm the existence of the title, let alone platforms or a release date. Or whether they will reimburse players who get carried away and set fire to their guitar peripherals.
